Ancient egyptian Workshop
The Ancient Egyptians were truly an incredible civilisation. During this workshop, the children learn about the life (and death) of a Pharaoh.
Mummification - The children meet Empa, the embalmer. He has prepared countless Ancient Egyptians for the journey to the afterlife over the years. Now though…it is his time to journey to the afterlife. There’s one problem…HE was the only embalmer in the village! It is now down to a scribe called Ari, to read Empa’s writings and learn on-the-job how to get Empa to the afterlife with dignity. As the introduction to our brand-new Ancient Egyptian workshop, the workshop leader…Ari, will be fumbling his way through the embalming and mummification process in front of shocked and captivated primary children!
Sloppy human organs will be removed. ‘Accidents’ will inevitably happen. A life-long memorable experience will surely be the result for all in attendance.
Egyptian scribe - Using hieroglyphic stencils, black paint and authentic reed pens and papyrus, the children become Egyptian scribes!
Egyptian games - The children will get to play two of the most popular Egyptian board games
Egyptian City Builder - In this session, using an interactive Powerpoint, the children will work together to design their very old Egyptian city! Have they got what it takes to create the perfect Egyptian city?
Artefact Investigation - Ari will show the children various replica Ancient Egyptian artefacts and talk about their significance. Many of the artefacts have been made in modern-day Egypt so are extremely authentic!
As always, these sessions can be done in a carousel of activities, with two of them being 'teacher-led'. By providing this, we can ensure that up to 3 classes can get a FULL day's worth of learning and activities!
The Ancient Egyptian workshop is now delivered by 2 of our workshop leaders: Leigh and Lucy.
