Pharaoh enough! Children at Theddlethorpe Academy completed a project on ancient Egypt by making replica headdresses, a Sarcophagus and Canopic jars. During the project they visited The Collection Museum where they learned how to prepare a person for mummification and dug for artefacts in their role as archaeologists.

The Year 3 and 4 pupils enjoyed making their replicas out of tissue paper, cardboard and bandages. Year 3 pupil Sophie Rigley (7) said: "I enjoyed learning about mummification and about Egyptian Gods."
