Pupils learned how to walk like an ancient Egyptian during a fun-packed lesson.

Children at St Nicholas’ Chantry Primary School spent days learning about the ancient people with visiting Egyptologist Ali Ball.

It was then down to the students to bring what they had learned to life with costumes, model pyramids and drawings.

Students were also tasked to make their own traditional Egyptian head dressings and learn more about the pharaohs who were buried in the pyramids.

They read hieroglyphics and played a form of bingo to learn about the ancient number system.

They also handled ancient artefacts as part of their studies.

The school, which is part of the Clevedon Learning Trust, has hosted a number of similar themed days to help improve pupils’ learning experiences.

Headteacher Peter Treasure-Smith said: “Ali Ball was brilliant and the pupils really enjoyed the fun and seeing the Eyptians really brought to life.”
