In the morning the children looked at some different artefacts from tombs, they discussed the daily life of people from different stages in the hierachy and they created and then described some smells from ancient Egypt. The final part of the morning involved dressing a child as an ancient Egyptian pharoah!
In the afternoon the children all got dressed up and took part in an ancient Egyptian burial ceremony. The children thoroughly enjoyed this and they acted their roles brilliantly.
Finally the children did an arts and crafts session and made their own Egyptian cartouche.
The children thoroughly enjoyed the day and learnt a lot about the way of life in ancient Egypt.
We’d like to thank Partake theatre for the excellent day!
