First of all we walked sensibly into our classroom and on the whiteboard was a lot of varieties of hieroglyphics and we had to crack the code (it was super fun). Then a few minutes later we all slowly and carefully walked straight to the school hall where a wonderful lady called Jenny was waiting patiently for us to arrive.
We then sat silently on the wooden benches and listened very carefully to what Jenny had to say to us. After this we had to place a few little objects in order – oldest to newest but before we started this we got split into two groups to see if we could figure it out. A few seconds later we all finally found out who had worked the answer out correctly and surprisingly both groups had got it correct! Shockingly after that we politely got asked to take our shoes off and get into our home table groups and then sensibly got into a straight line and sat silently around a box of soft silky sand.
Amazingly we then all kindly go given a white sheet of paper with six large squares on but it looked familiar to the sand box in front of us but I was very confused why though! After that we all then found out what we had to do. We had to dig through the sand to see what we could discover. Soon after we all discussed the objects that we had found and spoke a bit about the Egyptian gods and all their names. Fabulously in the Egyptian times they would pull out the brain with something metal as part of the Egyptian mummification process. Also they believed that if they kept the heart they would weigh it so they could tell if you were a good or bad person. All in all we had a fabulous morning and learnt a lot.
