Kilvrough- journey and arrival
We had a fantastic day which started with us all learning hieroglyphics and learning to write our own names. Once we mastered this small scale we went large with long strips of paper and paint. Then during the afternoon, we developed our food technology skills by making Egyptian date cake, bread balls and a delicious yoghurt dip called Salatit Zababi. The highlight of our day was coming back to school with our families for our 'Night at the Museum' evening. This provided us all with the opportunity to share the amazing artefacts homework projects we have been working on as well as the scrummy Egyptian food!

Beacon Hill Over the summer holidays you might like to go on a family picnic to Beacon Hill. It is just south of Newbury and is the site of Lord Carnarvon's grave, overlooking his home, Highclere Castle. He supported his friend Howard Carter by funding the excavation of Tutankhamun's Tomb and was there to see the greatest discovery in History. It is just off the A34, there is a carpark at the bottom and as well as the fenced grave there are also amazing views.
