Our Ancient Egyptians Workshop Day with Partake was absolutely brilliant. The children all got involved and it felt like we really were taken back 3000 years! Over the course of the day, the children reinacted a mummification/ burial ceremony, made cartouches, looked at real artifacts and finally had an investigative lesson into spices that were used either for mummification or eating.
