Ancient Egypt

Room 5 has been learning about Ancient Egypt.
We've had fun making Egyptian collar necklaces and Scarob beetle necklaces. We made the collar necklaces out of recycled paper plates and decorated them with felts, bingo markers and glitter. We watched a video first so we got an idea what they looked like and the colours to use.

Our Scarob beetles are made from modelling clay and we used clay tools to design patterns on them. We put wool through the hole at the top so we can wear them.  

On the last day of term 3, we learnt about Ancient Egyptian writing- Hieroglyphics. 
Writing using code - we wrote our first and last names and then we cracked to code to find out names of  Famous Egyptians. 
It was fun!
