Egyptian day

Class 2 had a very exciting first day back with a visit from John Conyard who hosted an Egyptian day. John brought a vast collection of ancient Egyptian artefacts from his own personal collection.  Throughout the day the children were invited to have a go at mummifying a dummy and dressing up in period costumes.  The children were shown various weapons and were shown how they were used.  John talked them through the Egyptian timeline with notable key dates. Working in groups, the children had an opportunity to sketch some of the artefacts and played games with ancient stones.
