Owl Class – Ancient Egypt Day (Widget Workshops)

Owl Class had a fantastic focus day in school on Wednesday with Kat and Sue From Widget Workshops who bombarded us with their expertise, hands-on activities and (much to the delight of the class) Virtual Reality headsets! By the end of the day, we had expanded our knowledge of Egyptology significantly but also relished the opportunity to write hieroglyphics in inks, explore timelines, play Egyptian games, mummify each other and then get a realistic feel for the pyramids, the Valley of the Kings and a close-up look at artefacts through the VR headsets. It was jam-packed!

Kat and Sue were fantastic – we thank them both for such a great day full of resources to explore and extend our learning of Egyptology.
