P3 recently enjoyed an Archaeology Workshop entitled  “Ancient Technology Workhop”  in connection with their Egyptian topic. The children had grinding, drilling and hieroglyphs as their activities. The children were introduced to ancient methods of grinding wheat using a Quern and were asked to discover which Quern was the easier to use and which made  the softest flour. They also made a wooden pendant and made and used a form of an early drill to make a hole in the pendant. They wrote their name in hieroglyphs with a wooden pen and ink. They really enjoyed the practical hands on workshop and began to understand how technology changes peoples lives throughout the ages.
