Yesterday, Year 5 went to Leeds Discovery Centre to take part in an Ancient Egyptian workshop. The children were able to touch artefacts, design their own Egyptian town and create a self portrait (in the style of hieroglyphics).
The children were amazed by the fascinating Leeds Discovery Centre store, which holds over 1 million artefacts. We were able to look at a range of different items from the past; we were even able to touch moon rock and look at a meteorite!
Help at home: Discuss something they have learnt, their favourite part of the day or a question they now have about Egyptian life.
