The fascinating history and culture of Ancient Egypt has been explored by primary school pupils in Clevedon.
Yeo Moor Primary School, in Kennaway Road, allowed year three children to dress up in costumes from the time and create their own museum which was opened up to parents.
It was inspired by a trip to Bristol Museum where pupils were able to study real artefacts discovered by archaeologists.
The money raised from the museum will go towards a future WOW event for children.
Roland Lovatt, headteacher, said: “It has been an amazing term and children have thoroughly enjoyed learning about ancient Egypt and have had great fun in the process.”
