Hieroglyphs and Jewellery

In the second activity of our Egyptian Day the children learnt a lot about Egyptian writing and how they communicated.  After some teaching and a practice they got to ink a hieroglyph onto papyrus paper.  After that they got to work with metal wire to make an Ankh brooch.  They will bring both of these artefacts back to school as well.  This activity was slightly warmer as it was in one of the outbuildings and gave the children a chance to warm up!  In between activities most opted for the adventure playground although a few chose to chill out and relax in the common room.
