Youngsters learned about mummification, ancient artefacts and weapons of war as part of an Egyptian history day.

The South Hiendley J&I School pupils had to draw artefacts - including a wooden pillow, arrowhead and an embalming tool - and guess what they were before learning about Egyptians’ religious beliefs, armies and games.

Michael Graham, class teacher, said: “The children were very enthusiastic and really enjoyed the day.”
