We had a busy afternoon discovering the Ancient Maya countries and capital cities on a map. We are looking forward to our next lesson which is going to be about the Maya Calendar.
Today we elected our School Council Representatives. We heard some fantastic speeches and it was a very close contest. We are pleased to announce that Phoebe and Finlay have been elected.
On Monday 13th January 2020, year 3 were visited by Tony North who came in to teach us all about the Egyptians. First we learnt all about the Egyptian gods. Then we did a quiz- the prize was an A2 Egyptian poster! The winners were Joel, Thomas and Aisha! They were very happy with their prizes!
Next we practised writing in hieroglyphs, before writing our names on some Egyptian paper called papyrus. Did you know that the word ‘paper’ comes from papyrus?
In the afternoon we painted our own Egyptian models using acrylic paint. We have had a fantastic day today!
