To kick off our final topic for the year, Temples, Tombs and Treasures, we embarked on an Ancient Egyptian-themed treasure hunt! Children worked together in their house teams to locate and crack a series of clues written in hieroglyphics (a form of ‘alphabet’ that was used in Ancient Egypt), and locate a hidden Ancient Egyptian artefact in the school! Howard Carter himself would be proud of our super-sleuthing detectives!
The children had a great time locating and solving the clues and it was encouraging to see teams working together so well. Congratulations to Samet, who were first to crack all the codes and bring back their Ancient Egyptian to class almost safe and sound! The children later learned how to write their names in hieroglyphics, and then wrote secret messages to a mystery partner in the class which they needed to solve to find the message, and whom it was from!
A great start to the new term and our new topic! We can’t wait to see what other mysteries we can uncover…
