Ancient Egyptians: Dead or Alive?

During Ancient Egyptian times, kings took their internal organs with them to the after life in canopic jars.

We decorated them with all shades of metallic paints and hieroglyphics.

We used Microsoft Publisher to create a fact file about Howard Carter's discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb.  
Partake Theatre Company visited Year Six for the day. We looked at some artefacts, dressed up as Egyptian Priests and Priestesses, explored the different herbs and spices used for mummification and re-enacted a Pharaoh's burial ceremony. It was great fun!
