travelling back to ancient Egypt

Lockdown, Term 3, 2021 This term, Year 7 have been studying Ancient Egypt in HSIE. Even though we have been in lockdown the past few weeks, 7M has created some amazing work samples from home. In a lesson last week, students were given the task to create a paper pyramid that profiled a famous Egyptian Pharaoh. Some students studied Cleopatra, Tutankhamun, Thutmose III or Ramses II and displayed fun facts, images and more on their paper pyramids. This lesson gave the students an opportunity to study the lives of Pharaohs and their connection to the pyramids. In another HSIE lesson 7M studied 'hieroglyphs'. Students researched the invention of hieroglyphs, usage of the ancient writing system, and the history behind deciphering hieroglyphs using the 'Rosetta Stone'. After researching, students had an opportunity to use their new knowledge and wrote their names in hieroglyphs! Technology is truly a blessing that allows us to remain connected even while learning and teaching remotely. Miss Naomi Abascal, Core Teacher Year 7
