Year 5 Egypt Engage Week

5th June 2019
Ancient Egyptian Death Masks 

As part of their topic ‘Pharaohs’, Year 5 learnt about ancient death masks and their significance in the afterlife. They looked closely at different examples and used inspiration to design and make their own.

Using mod rock, the children had to carefully build up a solid covering for their mask and create a head dress for it. After leaving it to dry for a few days, the children referred to their designs to paint them accordingly.
