ANCIENT Egyptians have inspired children to make a series of artefacts.

Pupils from Lyndhurst First School, in East Worthing, spent time investigating and exploring Egyptian artefacts, to discover more about the lifestyles and beliefs of this ancient civilisation, before making some of their own relics.

Crystal Smith, year-three teacher, said: “They demonstrated this learning through art and design and used a variety of modelling techniques and processes to create artefacts, and applied their history learning to make them look authentic.

“The children have been highly motivated by this hands-on topic and each class has interpreted their learning in a different way.”

The artefacts have been on display at Worthing Museum and Art Gallery, in Chapel Road, as part of an exhibition which was designed by the pupils to tell the story of the artefacts’ origin and their archaeological discovery, with input from the curators at the museum.
