Year 4 Egyptian Day

March 13, 2017

On the 7th March, Year 4 had a taste of life in ancient Egypt.

They went back to 14th century BC, the 8th year of Akhenaten’s reign. Construction of a new utopian city to honour the god Aten neared completion. To celebrate, the Pharaoh named a new high priest, the Mery-Ra, to oversee religious worship.

The children served as workers and slaves finishing the construction of the city. They completed important tasks in ancient Egyptian culture, including embalming, tomb painting and amulet making, among others.

The afternoon featured an Egyptian “banquet” with splendid plays, dances and a feast.

It was brilliant day and Year 4 wanted it to go on all week!
