Egyptian WOW Day

Bringing History to Life with 'History Off the Page'

Egyptian WOW Day

On Thursday 19th October Y3 were visited by ‘History off The Page’ who led a fantastic Egyptian Day in the school hall.

Through role-play, children experienced life as it would have been in 1330 B.C.

The children used authentic tools and materials whenever possible to learn skills as apprentices in a wide variety of workshops eg. lamp workers, embalmers, stone carvers, scribes, bread makers, tomb painters, amulet makers and potters.

As the day progressed, the children got involved in the issues of the time, with the chance to participate in a range of cross-curricular activities, including preparing entertainment for the Royal Banquet celebrations.

There was also a story-telling session. By the end of the day, the children had a really good idea of how it felt to be an Egyptian at this time.

We would like to thank the parents who dressed up and took part in the day – your help was greatly appreciated and it would not have been able to take place without you. Thank you to the Y3 Team for organising such an enjoyable and successful ‘wow’ event!
