CHILDREN at a Worcester primary school were walking like Egyptians after taking a step back in time to discover the history of ancient Egypt.

Year five and six pupils at St Clement’s CE Primary School took part in a number of challenges and activities as the city’s Discover History team came to give the children a helping hand with their project on the ancient civilisation.

Pupils dressed as mummies, took part in an archaeological expedition and even acted out the Battle of Kadesh.

Year five teacher Tina Brown said: “The children found it really inspiring as some of our pupils are going to design two rubber-proofed tombs during the half term break after hearing about Howard Carter’s discovery of Tutankhamun.”
