You may have felt you had landed in Ancient Egypt if you had visited St Michael's on Wednesday 12th June!

Year 3 had an immersive day of history learning about Ancient Egyptian culture, politics and daily life. The Drama Room was thriving with workstations teaching the children skills to make an array of items to decorate the Pharoah's tomb: from painting on wet plaster and making perfumed cones, to carving sandstone.

There was an amazing buzz throughout the day with gossip and news about the new, and somewhat unpopular, pharaoh and his wife, Nefertiti.

These hands on, active experiences bring learning and lasting memories for our children who went home excited, exhausted and enthused about their History topic - what a great day!
