After descending the steps and entering the chamber, the children were greeted with darkness. Turning on their flashlights, items were glistening all around them and they began to discover strange and unusual items. They discovered extraordinary writing in the form of symbols and pictures, lots of gold and precious jewels and a sarcophagus with a mummy inside! The children were so excited about what they discovered and they cannot wait to learn about it all and more. It was a great start to our ‘Walk like an Egyptian’ topic.
During the day the children also learnt about Egyptian jewelry and its importance, as they made golden necklaces. The children also learnt about how the farmers relied on the River Nile for food and crops.
