Canopic Jars

 

Earlier in the year we explored the artefacts of Ancient Egypt. We were all captivated by the grotesque burial ritual involving mummification and canopic jars.

 

Within art, we developed our sculpting skills by first creating pinch pots. We used our thumb and index finger to carefully press out the clay from a ball into a small jar. 

 

We then developed our canopic jars by carving an intricate lid based on the Gods of Ancient Egypt. 

 

Finally we painted our canopic jars using golds and blacks to signify the wealth of those who would have had their organs preserved. 

Royal Crowns 

 

We explored the various royal crowns of Ancient Egypt and their importance in signifying wealth, importance and divinity. Within art, we combined this with our learning about the sacred carvings of the Egyptians and designed our own royal crowns featuring our names in hieroglyphics. 

 

Our Mission and Values

Together we are a family of God, a family of love, a family of learners.
