Mummy's the word as boys and girls walk like Egyptians
MUMMY'S the word for children at Hempsted CofE Primary School after they uncovered the secrets of Ancient Egypt.
The school held Egyptian-themed days in which pupils and staff arrived for lessons in full costume to evoke the spirit of the boy pharaoh Tutankhamun, Queen Cleopatra and the like.
Headteacher Sarah Smith said: "It was wonderful fun, we've had some really colourful costumes and I think everyone's learned an awful lot about Ancient Egypt too.
"We had mask making sessions and research workshops."
