Today is a fabulous day of costumes for Ancient Civilisations Day. If you walk through Ks2 you’ll find yourself traveling back in time through Ancient Greece, Mexico, Rome and into Egypt in Y4!
This morning I switched our Y4 Computing sessions to ‘Discover Ancient Egypt’ which comprises a range of totally captivating interactive activities from The Museum of Scotland. http://www.nms.ac.uk/explore/play/discover-ancient-egypt/
A big congratulations to the NMS, each activity is carefully thought out and had our classes fixated with concentration.
What were our favourites? :
The Three Pyramids created a real drive to persevere and ‘make it’ past the scorpions, cobras, collecting resin, and gifts for the gods. Once you have collected all you need, you are granted a key that opens the Mummy’s Chamber. Fantastic stuff and a good reason for our students to push themselves and finally, to experience an ‘I did it!’ moment.
Top Tip : space bar to jump and watch out for the Scorpions and Cobras.
