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!
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?
