Egyptologist visit to Year 3

23rd February 2017
On Thursday, 23rd February Kiwi and Kookaburra class welcomed Ben Hinson, a final year PHD student from Cambridge University, to The Grove. Ben is an Egyptologist specialising in studying the life of children in Ancient Egypt and he gave a fascinating presentation to us. We learnt all about the games children played and the toys they had, as well as finding out about school life and work for children as young as 4 or 5 years old. Ben brought along copies and rules of the most popular board game of the time, Senet, for us to try. We are so grateful to Ben for giving us his time and sharing his wealth of knowledge with us.
