Year 3 Egyptian Day
Year 3 Egyptian Day by Henry 3KH
On Tuesday, we went to Norwich Castle because we are learning about Egypt.
First, we went with Dr Derry and looked at some very, very interesting Egyptian things like shiny, blue scarab beetles.
Secondly, we smelt some oil called frankincense, saw an obsidian knife and looked at mummies with Professor Parry.
After a yummy lunch, we saw what people in Egypt had for breakfast and tried on some Egyptian clothes.
Last but not least, we made some reflecting, pretty Egyptian necklaces with all different colours like red, green, gold and silver.
Year 3 Egyptian Day by Noam 3KH
In the morning, we went to Norwich Castle to learn a bit more about ancient Egypt.
First, we went with Dr Derry to look at some incredibly ancient Egyptian artefacts. She told us a story about some Egyptian gods because it related to all the models and shabtis. We saw a replica of the Rosetta Stone and a canopic jar.
Next, we went with Professor Parry. She showed us a fake mummy although we couldn’t touch it. She showed us a sharp, tough obsidian knife which the ancient Egyptians used to make a cut in the mummy and take out body parts.
After that, we met Amunet who told us all about life in ancient Egypt. They ate things like sweet, juicy pomegranate, crunchy, brown cinnamon and dry, black figs.
Finally, we went with Ahmut Muhn to make some shiny, golden (not real gold) necklaces. In one of the pictures there was one with a scarab beetle to give good luck to the wearer although it was blue and not real.
