EGYPT DAY

Egypt Day was a welcomed break in our busy schedule of work and routine. The excitement was in the air as the children arrived in their beautiful costumes. They made a tremendous effort and they are sure to take many memories with them with the numerous photos taken. As they entered the world of Ancient Egypt they focussed on their artistic and creative side while making canopic jars, mummies and sarcophagi. These clay creations will be used in their ILT a little later this term. There was plenty of time to enjoy the lighter side of life while chatting, mingling and having a more relaxed day. Take a look through our gallery of photos…

The Exciting Egyptians

Egypt day hit Elkanah on Friday with much excitement.  There was a wide variety of glits and glamour.  The children went the extra mile as they put together beautiful costumes that contributed to a very colorful day! The day was filled with activities such as moulding their own mummies out of clay wrapping it up and placing it in their home made sarcophagus and learning more about this fascinating ancient civilization. Now they are ready for the ILT where they will have more hands on activities about ancient Egypt.

The buzz was evident in the Rainbird class this morning as they embarked on a mission to show their talents as Architects. They had to design and build a pyramid and place it in a scene of Ancient Egypt. It was wonderful to see their creativity emerge as they incorporated all their knowledge on Ancient Egypt into creating superb projects.
