To celebrate, extend and consolidate the learning Year 6 have achieved over the Spring Term, the children dressed up and took part in an Ancient Egyptian workshop. Sycamore Class learnt a vast array of skills and facts about the Ancient Egyptians, varying from: playing some of the games they used to play- to learning more about the embalming process. Great fun was had by all.
Whilst studying the Ancient Egyptians, Sycamore Class found out about some of their burial customs.
They learnt that after death, the pharaohs of Egypt usually were mummified and buried in elaborate tombs. With them were buried Canopic jars containing precious internal body parts, essential for their next life.
The children researched Canopic jars, and using Modroc, they created impressive jars of their own.
Year 6 had great fun learning about the vital role mucus (snot) plays in protecting the body from harmful bacteria and its role in lubricating different parts of our bodies (such as our eyes). Sycamore Class had a blast trying to produce ‘snot slime’ using some key ingredients
