Ancient Egypt activities:



It would be helpful if you could provide your child with an old pair of shoes, trainers or football boots. These should be in a plastic bag with their name on and kept in school throughout the term. If children are unable to participate in games activities they should bring note to explain why. Children will be asked to remove watches, earrings and nose studs for P.E. Thank you.
