Year 5 make ancient Egyptian ‘board games’ as an end of term treat!

As we approach the end of our studies on ancient Egypt, making a ‘board game’ is a good way to test knowledge and understanding. Making a board game includes compiling questions, selecting information, as well as thinking of the answers! 

The task is creative and could be as simple as drawing a grid on a piece of card for players to move around or children can have a free rein on creativity and construct a model pyramid etc. The homework task was spread over almost three weeks- including the last week of term.  

Last lesson was ‘buzzing’ with enjoyment as the classes played their games together and tried out their friends’ games – not just their own! We all had to decide if the history was accurate! 

A very big ‘thank you’ to everyone who generously injected both time and thought into their homework task. They were fantastic!  Well done! 

Some of our Year 5 children also went up to St Peter and St Paul Church last week to decorate a Christmas tree - see picture below.
