I was very impressed to see the number of children who tried one of my challenges during the Christmas break; this is always such a busy time so it was great to see so many children having a go. Following on from our topic on the Ancient Egyptians, children had to choose from the list of tasks in the table below to showcase their learning.
|Choose 2 from this row||Write an advert for an Egyptian job vacancy. What does the job involve? What skills are required?||Research the River Nile. Draw a map of it and add pictures along it to show how it was used.||Create a movie poster to advertise a new film entitled: Tutankhamun – The Discovery||Design your own Egyptian god/goddess. Draw a picture, describe his or her appearance and explain why he/she is special.|
|Choose 1 from this row||Create a PowerPoint presentation entitled ‘All About the Ancient Egyptians’||Build a 3D model to showcase your favourite part of Ancient Egyptian history.||Write an instruction manual entitled ‘How to make a mummy’||Make your own model of the Rosetta Stone||Research the pyramids and present the information you find out to the rest of the class. You could create a poster, build a model, etc.|
On our return to school, each child presented their work to the class. I particularly enjoyed seeing the range of work – from written presentations to 3D models to hand-drawn posters. Well done!
