CHILDREN have been transported back to ancient Egypt for a fun-filled day.

Year 3 pupils at Copthill School in Uffington enjoyed a day dressed as Egyptians as part of the history day last week.

During the day, the children made ink to write hieroglyphics on papyrus.

The youngsters also made conopic jars, used during the mummification process, and had a go at wrapping bandages around a clothes peg to create their own mummies.

They also created tomb paintings.

In the afternoon, everyone was invited to enjoy a special Nile banquet, where they ate a feast of figs, cheese and bread.

They also performed Egyptian plays and dances.

School marketing manager Elli Westwood said all the children had a fantastic day.
