Today we would like you to have fun making a model of an Egyptian Mummy. If you cannot print the worksheets below you could get creative and make your own coffin and Mummy from an empty cardboard box and any other resources you can find. Use a toy character or a lego person as the body and wrap it up to make a Mummy!


You can either choose the design which has faces drawn on already or a plain one to design your own Egyptian mummy!

Wellbeing Wednesday 

Enjoy some Calm Me time with Mrs Cocker


This week you will be thinking about why it is important to belong to a team or group. What teams or groups do you belong to? These might be inside or outside of school. How does it make you feel? What does being a good sport look like? What skills and qualities do you need to be a good team player? Have a look at the top tips sheet below. 


Have a watch of the following video and then complete the sheet below or create a poster answering the questions above. 

Make your own Guess Who game


Create your sets of characters on pieces of card or paper. Customising each character is easy –  you could use photos of drawings of your favourite super heroes, cartoons, sports teams or even your family and pets. Once you have created your characters, ask each other yes/no questions and try to be the first player to guess your partners identity.
