Year 3 become pharaohs for Egyptian Day

Year 3 pupils at St George's Junior School became pharaohs for the day on Wednesday 4 October as they celebrated Egyptian Day.

Adorned in colourful Egyptian crowns and collars, the pupils were very eager to learn more about Egyptian life and practices.

With the help of Howard Carter (Sir Teachalot), the girls and boys trained to become Egyptologists. They learned all about the lives of archaeologists in the 1920s, the importance of the Nile to Ancient Egyptians, mummification and how pyramids were built. 

As well as this, the children had the opportunity to get a closer look at some authentic Egyptian artifacts and learn all about the history behind such objects.

All of the children looked amazing in their costumes, which they had made in Art classes and everyone had a great time throughout the course of the day.
