We have been learning about the Egyptians and we have learned about how they have been mummified and how they were put in tombs. We were using clay to make pyramids and then we made mummies and wrapped them with linen (plaster cast). We made our own sarcophagus' out of card - we then put in our mummies.
We created our own cartouches and we wrote our names in hieroglyphics in them. We learned about the Eye of Horus and that it is important because it guarded away bad and evil spirits so they could go to the After Life. We have also created Pharaoh's crowns and had great fun dancing to Egyptian songs. The snake at the top of the crown kept away bad spirits also. We found out the snake would spit out poison if needed protected.
