On Tuesday the 4th of April 2017 year 5 had an ‘End of topic Egyptian celebration.’ As the end of the term is upon Oxenhope C of E Primary School we ended our Conerstones topic of Pharaohs and Egyptians. On this day we dressed up as Egyptians and made Egyptian food. We made shortbread with an Egyptian kick (it was devine). Later on in the day our parents came in and tasted food plus they helped us with making Canopic jars of our own design out of clay.

On Tuesday the fourth of April we had an Egyptian day, during this day we had to dress up in Egyptian style. To start the day, we cooked two Egyptian recipes one was Khak (a type of shortbread) and the other was flat bread. Whilst a group was cooking the rest of the class was doing activities like making paper pyramids. After break time we came back to start a mummy making challenge the winning team got a special prize. We were given three rolls of toilet paper to wrap our mummy with. At the end Mr Thurlby decided the winner. When we came back from lunch we started to create our own Canopic jars. First we designed them and then we started to mold them. Soon our parents came in and started to help us. Already it was home time and we had to go home.

On Tuesday we had an Egyptian day where our parents came in and looked around our class room. We made clay models of Egyptian Canopic jars and in the morning we coloured paper and then cut the out, glued them so they looked like pyramids! Also we made naan bread, we made short bread. Noah and Max ate the naan raw. Our parents came so that they could see what we have being doing in class about the Egyptian projects.

On Tuesday the 4th of April year 5 had an Egyptian day. At our Egyptian day we made some Egyptian shortbread and kahk (which is an Egyptian sort of tortilla), even though it sounds like a noise you’ll make when you’re sick it tastes very nice especially with a bit of butter. At our Egyptian day we dressed up in Egyptian themed costumes, phoebe dressed up as Isis the Egyptian goddess of motherhood and love.

On Tuesday we dressed up as Egyptian gods and goddesses. Throughout the day we were making flat bread dough and Egyptian short bread {we all wanted MORE.} It was so nice we all loved it! We also made our own pyramids out of paper and coloured them in however we wanted. We all so made Canopic jars out of clay and designed them. We also had a competition to see who is the best at wrapping people up as a mummy. We had loads of fun especially when we made the flat bread. Once we had done our mummies we made tombs for them we made them out of blankets and pillows and chairs then we made them Canopic jars out of paper or blocks. Then our teacher chose what mummy and tomb is the best and the prize was Minnie eggs for the group to share.
