It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
We have been learning all about the Ancient Egyptians and their beliefs about the afterlife. We have studied tomb paintings and what they tell us about everyday life, and the importance of burial items for the afterlife. We have drawn parts of a tomb painting, as well as designing and creating clay cartouches with our names written in hieroglyphics.
It's been a really busy start to the year and we have all settled into the juniors really well. We have been learning all about the Ancient Egyptians and even went 'tomb exploring'!
