The unit looks in detail at the amazing 'Ancient Egyptians'.
This week the children have amazed the teachers through their incredible existing knowledge and asked deep and detailed questions which will shape their enquiry.
Thursday 10th January was the date for our entry point and children dressed as archaeologists or in Egyptian themed outfits which were truly something to behold.
Split into four mixed class groups our students sampled a range of activities including an archeological excavation, a journey into a dark tomb, tackling tricky Ancient Egyptian puzzles, building sugar cube pyramids and mummifying apples.
The unit also sees the children enter the amazing world of Ancient Egyptian myths as part of our Literacy focus. We will be learning more about the Gods and Goddesses they worshiped as part of their religion and beliefs.
The level of interaction and engagement was really something to behold and despite the cold weather it really was like being in Egypt.
We eagerly await where our IPC journey takes us next week and will revisit our knowledge harvest and entry point just before the February holiday.
