Papyrus Calendars

Papyrus Calendars

For our 2017 calendars we looked at Ancient Egyptian art and used repeating patterns to create a similar design. We learnt how papyrus stems are made into paper.

Canopic Jars

Ancient Egyptian Canopic Jars

Since returning to school after October half term we have been learning all about Ancient Egypt. We reaserched how to mummify a dead body and how they used canopic jars to reserve (what Egyptians thought) the vital organs, they believed they were needed to live again in the afterlife. 

Here are some of our jars, we worked very hard to sculpt them with clay.
