Egyptian Day
 
 

Years 3 and 4 took part in an Egyptian workshop. 

They had to help the archaeologist break the curse and find the treasure. 

 
 
 
 
 
 

First we had to be dressed like Egyptians . . .

 
 
 
 
. . . pronounce our Egyptian names . . .
 
 
 
 
 
. . . and walk like an Egyptian !
 
         
 
We were joined by Tutankhamun and his attendant.
 
 
 
 
Watch out for the crocodiles in the Nile !
 
         
 
The body had to be mummified.
 
         
 

 

Lotions were prepared for the embalming . . .
 
 
 
 
. . . removing the internal organs is a tricky procedure!
 
 
 
 
Time to wrap in bandages.
 
 
 
 
Here's one we prepared earlier !
 
 
 
 

The Gods watched over us as we carried the body.

 

 
 
 
 
Everyone was very sad.
 
 
 
 
The body was laid to rest in the tomb.
 
 
 
 
We gave gifts for the journey into the next life.
