The British Museum – 27th September 2018

Today as part of our work in history, Danes class visited the British Museum to explore the Ancient Egyptian galleries. We also enjoyed a workshop session ‘Decoding Ancient Egyptian Tomb Paintings’. During this session we first studied some tomb paintings and learnt that the images often represent places the deceased would like to visit in the afterlife; things they would like to take with them and activities they would like to pursue. We then had time to create our own images using our digital computing skills. We too had to choose a location we liked, items we wanted to take and also include ourselves enjoying a favourite activity. We hope you enjoy the gallery showing the results of our work!
