Ancient Hieroglyphics

Lesson: Art and design

Class: Year 6 Willow Year: 2017 - 2018

Willow class studied the Ancient Egyptian writing system, hieroglyphics which were often found carved in tombs. Ancient Egyptians wrote on papyrus paper and used thin, sharp reeds which they would dip in ink to write with... In our class, we drew our own cartouches and mixed earthy tones to paint them with. We then used the hieroglyphic alphabet to write our names inside. Check out our final display... Can you match our cartouches to our photographs?
