3F - Miss Fairbrother's Class

In year 3 the school year kicked off with bundles of Egyptian themed fun!  

We started our day by being given a very important challenge by our resident detective, Detective Dash. Dash asked us to crack a special code and if we could manage it our new topic would soon be revealed...

Full of excitement we headed outside to the playground and found what looked like strange shapes drawn on to clue cards, (we later discovered that these were called hieroglyphics!) Using our team building skills we managed to find all of the clues and realised each symbol spelt out the words; Ancient Egypt - our new topic!

The fun continued after break time when we found out that the Ancient Egyptians invented lots of things we still use today such as paper and pens (and even toothpaste!)

With our new found knowledge we decided to make some paper, or papyrus, Ancient Egyptian style! 

What a wonderful start of term for 3F. Not only are we excited about discovering more of our terrific topic, we are also excited about discovering our new school together, as a class.
