Friday 24th. April

It's Fabulous Friday! Make sure you do something fabulous today! Here is today's work. Then have a fabulous weekend!

READING TASK:

In today's quick read find out how ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics were deciphered - can you find out what that word means?

WRITING TASK:

To finish our work on 'The Egyptian Cinderella' I would like you to write the next installment of the story. What happens to Rhodopis next once she meets Pharaoh Amasis? 

 

Read the writing task sheet and then have a go. You can use the storyboard format as your plan and then write your story out in paragraphs. I want you to write your story for an audience so when you have finished it read it out loud to your family.

HISTORY TASK:

So from your quick read comprehension earlier you know the ancient Egyptians wrote using pictures called hieroglyphs. Each picture stands for a sound. Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics originally only used consonants in their alphabet but today we add vowels in order to help us read the hieroglyphics. Have a look at this power point about hierglyphics. Just follow the link.

Now I want you to try writing like an ancient Egyptian. Use the information mat and have a go at writing your name in hieroglyphics. Then you could write a secret message to someone in hieroglyphics! When you have had a good go at practising writing them, you can write your name in the cartouche on the worksheet. A cartouche was a special symbol used to write the name of the pharaoh in so you can be a pharaoh too!
