Pyramids and pharoahs were out in full force when schoolchildren took part in an Egyptian day.

Year Three pupils at St Joseph’s Catholic Primary School ate Egyptian food and made Egyptian jewellery to mark the end of a topic on Ancient Egypt.

And they got into the spirit of ancient times by dressing up as pharoahs and learning to walk like an Egyptian.

A spokeswoman for the school said: “The children had a really good time. They dressed up as Egyptians and they made bracelets and cartouches and clay pots wth their names on.”

Year Three pupils Scott McLean, Callum Shirley and William Goodwin donned their brightly coloured home made head-dresses as they took part in the activity-filled day of fun and learning at the Chesterfield Road school on Tuesday, July 19.

The spokeswoman added: “The children also learned about all the different gods and goddesses.

“The children all had a great time and learned a lot and the Egyptian day was a big success.”
