Year 4 kicked off the term by travelling back in time to the land of the Ancient Egyptians, where we met many ‘phascinating’ pharaohs, explorers and palaeontologists. The children became archaeologists and investigated artefacts to hypothesise about Ancient Egyptian life. We discussed the importance of the River Nile and concluded that without it, the Ancient Egyptian civilisation would have ceased to exist. We were treated to Rainbow Theatre’s immersive theatre production, which dramatised the thrilling and fascinating story of Moses and his fight with Pharaoh. The children thoroughly enjoyed teleporting themselves back in time to bring the story of Moses to life, to gain a better knowledge of Egyptian culture and history. We also studied artefacts to gauge what life was like during Ancient Egyptian times. We studied Egypt’s hierarchical society and investigated the jobs that women and men were likely to have.
