We hope you had a relaxing half term and are feeling ready for a week of home learning.
Don't forget that BBC are providing lockdown lessons for children who would like to watch them. These are optional.
There were more than 700 hieroglyphs so it was not easy and took many years to learn to read and write.
Messages were often written on papyrus, made from reeds.
The Rosetta Stone is one of the most famous objects in the British Museum.
It has a message carved into it about one of the Egyptian pharaohs.
The important thing for us is that the message is written in three scripts (types of writing): hieroglyphs, demotic (an Egyptian script used by Egyptian people) and Ancient Greek.
Before the Rosetta Stone was discovered about 200 years ago, nobody knew how to read ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs. But because the message says the same thing but in three different scripts, scholars who could read Ancient Greek were able to decipher (work out) the hieroglyphs.
- Write your full name in hieroglyphs
- Write a fact about Ancient Egypt in hieroglyphs
Lesson 4 - Mindfulness
In today's mindfulness session, we are going to learn about positive affirmations. Affirmations are positive statements that can help you to challenge and overcome negative thoughts.
They remind us of all the great things about us that we do not always congratulate ourselves for. Today we are going to think about our strength!
Remember, strength is not always physical. How have you been strong in your life?
Complete the activities below to celebrate times when you have been strong!
Have a relaxing evening with your family and don't forget to tell them what you've been learning about.
