Teamwork - Respect - Aim High

30th March - 3rd April


The Ancient Egyptians believed in an afterlife and had strong beliefs and traditions about how they made the journey to the afterlife. As many of you know already, part of the process was mummifying the dead bodies in order to preserve the body for use in the afterlife.

Watch the video below and have a look at the powerpoint 'How mummies were made' to find out all the details.

Then have a go at creating your own comic strip to explain the whole process. Draw pictures, write captions to explain what is happening in the picture and write some speech to go with it. Remember how to use speech punctuation. Use the document below to help you.


In the document below, there are 5 art activities that can be done with very little equipment and they create fantastic pieces of part!
