Suitable for Key Stage 2 ‘the achievements of the earliest civilizations’
Our Egyptian day looks at life in Ancient Egypt through the magnifying glass of Professor Clarissa Fflinders-Caltroppe, here weighing the heart and the feather of Ma’at.
She is an archaeologist and colleague of Howard Carter, and has a selection of ‘finds’ from her digs to show children.
Ancient Egypt was a fascinating, magical place and we look at the gods and goddesses that made up the Pantheon and belief structure.
We look at the history of Ancient Egypt and the dynasties of the Pharaohs, Upper and Lower Egypt, The Valley of the Kings, Pyramid design, cartouches and hieroglyphics, Champollion and the Rosetta Stone, Temples, Tutankhamun and Rameses II.
Our workshops explore the concept of archaeological practices with sandboxes, trowels, paintbrushes and data recording for the young Egyptologists in the class!
