4MD’s Egyptian day was packed with learning as we developed our understanding of Arabic; the language used in modern Egypt today. We also learned about the Ancient Egyptian game of Senet, which was enjoyed by King Tutankhamen, as a board and pieces were discovered in his tomb. We also completed fantastic Egyptian art work using our printing skills. To learn about mummification, the children watched a ‘live’ demonstration and the mummification of a fish. The highlight of the day was a cryptic treasure hunt using hieroglyphics.
