As part of our Ancient Egyptian Topic we learnt all about the mummification process.
As part of the process the organs were removed from the body (except from the heart). The liver, lungs, intestines and stomach were put in Canopic jars and left to dry. The jars were carved into the shape of the four sons of Horus – one of the ancient Egyptian gods. Each one protected a different organ.
We have really enjoyed learning about the Ancient Egyptians this term and are very proud of all the art work we have done. Have a look...
|We used squared paper to try to get the proportions right for our tomb paintings.|
|The scarab symbol was one of the most important religious Egyptian symbols.|
We made our amulets using paper plates and clay.
|Egyptians used papyrus to write on - we made our own by weaving reeds. We practised using paper first.|
