As part of our learning, we designed our very own death mask which in ancient Egyptian times, would have played a vital part in Egyptian funeral ceremonies. We then began to create our very own death masks by blowing up a balloon and covering it in layers of paper mache. Year 3 really felt like they were taking part in the embalming ritual! We are really looking forward to our balloons drying so we can complete the next stages of our death masks.
