Pupils from Grace Dieu Manor School saw history ‘come to life’ during their Egyptian Day.
The children in Years 3 & 4 learnt about all aspects of life in Ancient Egypt. They even discovered, first hand, how they mummified bodies!
They pupils certainly enjoyed taking part in some Egyptian dancing – a snippet of which can be seen here:
In the afternoon the pupils built pyramids and played lots of traditional games. The day finished with an Egyptian story, which pupils learnt was the original Cinderella story.
“We always try to bring learning to life,” says Headmistress Margaret Kewell. “The children are studying the Egyptians as part of their Creative Curriculum this term, and this was an opportunity to lift all they have learnt so far off the page.”
