Ancient Egyptian Day

Today, we celebrated the end of our topic by having an Ancient Egyptian Day. We began the day by creating Egyptian collars then moved on to making scarab beetle amulets. We cracked hieroglyphic codes and tasted a delicious range of foods that the Ancient Egyptians would have eaten. Our day ended with a visit from Hertford Museum where we worked in groups to mummify a body!

Take a look at the photos to see how it all went.
