This week, we have been planning our Ancient Egyptian artwork and designing our own beautiful amulets. We investigated the cloisonne technique before designing our own work. We used hieroglyphics from Ancient Egyptian times to plan and create our amulets, with each hieroglyph meaning something different.

Well done to the selected members of Class 6 for their achievements in the First News competition this week. They competed with other schools and tested their news knowledge to help them win one of the challenges.
