Year 3 Design a Cartouche

As part of our topic this half term, year 3 have been learning about how the ancient Egyptians invented one of the earliest known writing systems used from around 3000 BC. The symbols they used were called ‘hieroglyphs’, which come from a Greek word meaning ’sacred carving’.
Using clay, the children designed a replica cartouche with their name on. Next week they will paint and decorate them using some beautiful pearl effect paints.
