Thishalf term we were learning all about the Ancient Egyptians. We went on a trip to Ipswich museum where they had a real mummy from 3000 years ago along with lots of other awesome artefacts that we got to hold and look at.
We learnt lots about death ceremonies and how people were mummified. We also learnt the Ancient Egyptians believed that the dead needed to take things with them from their 'living life' to the 'after life' for them to carry on living - including their organs which had been removed from their bodies!
Their organs were stored in canopic jars, each headed with a different God. Here are some pictures of our mood boards which we created to gather ideas about canopic jars like different shapes, colours and head designs whilst also thinking about the reasons they were used and the emotions attached to them.
