Pupils from Sandford Primary School have been delving into the history of ancient Egypt this week.

The students learned about the pyramids, pharaohs and the intricacies of Egypt thousands of years ago in their history lessons.

The project culminated with the pupils donning Egyptian-style clothes and showcasing their imaginative recreations of the African civilisation.
