!Today we have been to Leeds City Museum. We went to look at all the Ancient Egyptian artefacts. They had loads! We had different workshops as well. In one we made amulets and in the other one we found out all about mummification! We had a great time.
We have studied the lives of Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong.
In our DT lesson we used everyday materials to model a boat similar to the one used by Columbus.
We spent time designing out boat discussing the features and their purpose, then we discussed the suitability of materials for our designs.
We had some funny faces whilst learning about the process of mummification today! Year 3 now know every step in the process and why the Egyptians thought it was important to do this.
Year 3 have been learning about what the Ancient Egyptians used pyramids for and why they were important. We have created our own pyramids ourselves thinking about how many sugar cubes we needed for each layer. We then placed them all together to form an Egyptian desert setting! We had lots of fun!
