Pharaohs

 

Year 5 had an excellent afternoon, presenting their Ancient Egypt homework to the rest of the class. They all put in a lot of time and effort to produce some fantastic pieces of work. The pyramid cakes were a particular hit with everyone!

Year 5 enjoyed a trip to Weston Park Museum to start off their topic on Ancient Egypt. Anita, the tour guide introduced them to two mummies: Djedma and Nessita, then showed a range of Egyptian artefacts such as shabtis, jewellery and other tomb paintings. The class then had great fun 'mummifying' a body upstairs in the classroom and placing each of the organs in canopic jars. They also made clay shabtis and decorated necklaces in traditional Egyptian designs. Anita ended the day by reading a story about Osiris in the Underworld.

During this topic, the children spent time sketching a range of canopic jars and enjoyed finding out their gruesome uses. They then used the 'coil method' to produce their own clay jar, using slip to create a nice smooth finish. A 'pinch pot' was used to form the lid, which the children then shaped into one of the four sons of Horus: Imsety (a human head), Hapy (a baboon head), Duamatef (the head of a jackal) and Qebehsenuf (the head of a falcon). Can you spot which the children have chosen in the photos below?
