Year 3 had such an amazing time during the Ancient Egyptian workshop as the start to our topic this term. In the morning, the children dressed up and put on eye make-up. Once dressed up they completed a range of activities, in mixed groups, such as grinding corn into flour using a mill stone, weaving on a loom to make cloth, rubbing chalk together to make a fine powder to make paint and constructing a reed mat. They examined a range of artefacts from Ancient Egypt and tried to work out what they were. Using clay they worked really hard to mould an amulet of Osiris spine, wrote spells on papyrus to include in the book of the dead and made up rules for games that were discovered in the Ancient Egyptian tombs so they could play them. They all had the chance to make an amulet with hieroglyphics of their name in a cartouche to protect them and bring them luck. In the afternoon they acted out an Egyptian myth about the Gods Osiris and Isis to understand what the Egyptians believed about the afterlife. Then Pharaoh Skye was mummified with some children taking on the jobs of removing her internal organs, hooking out the brain, wrapping her up in bandages and finally putting on the death mask. Luckily they all completed the jobs well as Skye then came back to life to be able to live in the afterlife. Finally to finish the workshop the children completed a archaeology game to discover tombs in the valley of the kings, each tomb that was discovered earnt points or gave the class a curse, 3 Coventry were victorious gaining 1000 points in total after discovering Tutankhamun’s tomb.
