JUNIOR school children dressed in tunics and adorned themselves with gold jewellery for an Ancient Egypt day at school.

Young Cleopatras from Bromley High School in Blackbrook Lane, Bickley, enjoyed activities the Egyptian people would have carried out 5,000 years ago.

The whole school hall was transformed last Wednesday into a hive of bread making, canopic jar clay modelling, herb and spice mixing, soap carving, olive crushing and scarab beetle jewellery design. In the afternoon the school hall was turned into the Royal Court of Queen Nefertiti and students were entertained by dancers, priests, the fortune telling Apis bull and a fine feast served efficiently by 'slaves'.

'Red wine' was sipped from silver goblets, while the invited guests feasted on courses of bread, cheese, fruit and honey cake.

Year six Form Tutor, Jane Allerton, said: "It was an excellent learning experience, thoroughly enjoyed by all the girls.
