Egyptian Workshop: Build A Pyramid

NEW Egyptian Workshop Build-A-Pyramid Is In Town

Egyptian Workshop is coming directly to your school. Bring a touch of Ancient Egypt into your school with the Created for KS2. The workshop comprises of a complete model of the King’s Pyramid at Giza measuring over 4-foot square. Pupils will help our Egyptian Explorer assemble the model. Everyone in the class will discover how pyramids were built. By examining the model in profile pupils can see where the passages lead. In addition, they will also learn how weight was dispersed by using different stone. Furthermore, the learners will see the different chambers and escape tunnels. We also conduct an experiment to understand how the ancient Egyptians moved the huge stone blocks.

Step 2: Mummification Process

Once the Pyramid is complete we turn to the mummification process. Using a specially designed mannequin, we prepare the body for mummification. First, we remove the organs. Then we place them in replica canopic jars. Lastly, the children can then take it in turns to wrap the mummy.Usually, the complete workshop can last up to half a day but can be shortened if required; we can tailor the workshop to suit your school’s individual needs by reducing or omitting elements.Note: This workshop is best suited to single class sizes only (approx. 30)

What Teachers Say:

"A really fun and informative way for the children to find out about the Anglo Saxons. It was an inspirational way to begin the Cornerstones topic - 'Traders and Raiders'. Who knew History could be so exciting?" Andy Westaway, Year 4 Leader, Park Hall Junior School“The children found the workshops very informative; Kevin’s historical knowledge is excellent, and he kept the children engaged throughout the afternoon. They particularly enjoyed handling the artefacts and hearing the more gruesome tales from the Victorian Era.” Samantha Rich, Year 6 teacher, Reaside Academy
