Today is our engage day! We will be doing a lot of different practical activities to immerse the children into the topic of the Egyptians. We will be watching some videos to get a general idea about Ancient Egypt and doing some drama around the life of an Egyptian.
We will be having a go at making our own papyrus (Egyptian paper) and also making our own name tags using clay and Egyptian letters (hieroglyphics).
