Pupils in Sutton St James enjoyed a trip back in time last week when Ancient Egypt came to their school.

Year 3 and 4 children took part in a special day on Thursday organised by the ‘History Off The Page Group’ and all came to school dressed as Egyptians.

“The children have been studying the topic of Ancient Egypt and this day took in everything they have learned,” said head teacher Claire Willows. They took part in loads of fun activities throughout the day and all dressed up too. We had pharaohs, slaves and even Nefertiti.”

Students also learnt about Egyptian preparations for the afterlife and did clay work, 
including making Egyptian amulets and canopic jars.

On Friday Years 5 and 6 enjoyed similar activities but under the theme of Ancient Greeks.
