Ancient Egypt came to life as Year 4 transformed John Hampden School into the Sahara Desert complete with the ancient tombs of Tutankhamen. The children searched the land for Professor Pembroke, followed his clues and deciphered hieroglyphic messages until they found mummified remains of Tutankhamen. They had to crack secret codes to escape the ancient tombs and made precious scarab beetle amulets in a clay workshop. We found out what the Ancient Egyptians ate and ‘walked like an Egyptian’ as we showed off the latest fashions and make-up of the era. Everyone had a wonderful day, and we were so impressed by all the amazing children.
