Friday 7th October 2011 – Printing Our Own Hieroglyphs in Year Four

Filed under: Art,History,Year 4 @ 8:09 am

We are really enjoying studying our topic about Ancient Egypt and have looked in more detail at the symbols and pictures Ancient Egyptians used to communicate with each other – known as hieroglyphs.  We have learnt that there were over 700 symbols in the Egyptian alphabet and that it took a scribe 5 years to learn all of these to be able to write properly.

Having looked closely at a selection of hieroglyphs, we designed our own and carved it into a printing tile.  Then using two ink based colours, we printed our hieroglyph onto paper.  Below is a selection of our work!
