Year 1 had a very exciting start to the school year with their Ancient Egypt project. It all started with a letter asking them to create a brochure 'All About Egypt'. First we began with an afternoon of dressing up and some food tasting to get us in the spirit which was very exciting. We have learned some really interesting facts about the Pharaohs and the pyramids and discovered some of the animals we might see over there.

We also learned about the climate in Egypt which taught us what we might need to pack if we go on our holiday over there.  As part of our project we have also learned how to write words in hieroglyphics and were excited to design our own sarcophagus. We also designed and drew a map of all the main tourist attractions along with important landmarks in the country. We have loved learning all about Ancient Egypt and really enjoyed producing our brochures and sharing them with everyone, along with our song 'Amazing Egyptians'.
