Class 5 enjoyed Term 2’s topic ‘Pharaohs’ which focused on Ancient Egyptians.
We studied a book called ‘Secrets of a Sun king’ based on a young girl who travels to Egypt in the 1920's to stop a curse changing her life forever. We did different activities. For instance, we wrote newspaper articles about missing feet, we turned part of the book into a play and we created poems to describe the Egyptian desert.
We had lots of fun making Death masks based on Tutankhamen's. We used clay to make the face and it’s features and then painted them. They were really delicate and some bits broke off a little.
In term two, we also had a go at making pyramids in the forest school area. This was trickier than we first thought and we really had to work together as a team to make sure they were exact.
