KING’S Ely Junior pupils arrived at school in some spectacular Egyptian costumes ready for a feast of fun fit for the Pharaoh.

History Off The Page visited the school on March 20th to run a workshop with Year 4 students to celebrate their work throughout the term on ‘Pharaohs, Fortunes and Floods’.

Pupils spent the morning learning a range of Egyptian crafts, which included making amulets and incense cones, writing out some hieroglyphs with homemade ink and wrapping miniature mummies.

In the afternoon, there was a banquet for the Pharaoh Akhenaten and his Royal family, complete with servants and a range of entertainments performed by the children, all of which certainly proved an exciting and educational way to conclude the term’s work.
