Pupils meet the Pharaohs at Ancient Egypt workshop
PRIMARY school children got to grips with Ancient Egypt with a workshop.
Lostock Hall Primary School was visited by Wicked Workshops, a company specialising in interactive workshops for primary schools.
During their workshop the year three and four children met Amohep, a Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt and helped him with the construction on his pyramid.
The children learned how a pyramid was constructed through a series of interactive games. A spokesman for the school said: “They discovered how unimaginably heavy the limestone blocks were that the Ancient Egyptians used in the construction of the Great Pyramid of Giza and learnt how the Ancient Egyptians ensured that the tip of the pyramid pointed due north.
“The children also discovered how a mummy was made so that they could become Royal Embalmers.
“Volunteers were then asked to step forward and aid in a demonstration.
“This was a fantastic hands-on learning experience and the children now look forward to spending time completing follow up work.”
Meanwhile, one of the school’s football stars has been signed up to Premier League club Stoke City.
Joshua was invited to a coaching session and made such a good impression that the club have asked him back to train with their under 10 squad.
