Today we travelled back in time with Yr3 and Yr4 pupils from The Ferns Academy to the time of the Egyptians.
We used Minecraft to build our own Egyptian artefacts.
We designed and built our own Cyanotic jars, Egyptian jewellery, pyramids and the trickiest challenge was to build our own Sarcophagus.
Here’s some interesting facts you may not know:
Imsety had a human head, protected the liver.
Qebehsenuf had the head of a falcon and guarded the intestines.
Hapy had a baboon head protected the lungs.
Duamatef had the head of a jackal, and guarded the stomach.
The word ‘sarcophagus’ is derived from Greek words “sarx” meaning “flesh”, and “phagien” meaning “to eat” derived from a Greek word for “flesh-eating.
