Students at Glenleigh Primary Academy invited parents to see their work in a special Paragon afternoon.
A school spokesperson said events such as this are a great opportunity for parents and carers to look at their children’s work and to see their interpretation of the varied topics they cover, adding: “We invite our parents in on a regular basis to look at the children’s work that they have been studying as part of the Paragon Curriculum that we use. This term the themes have been Egyptians and prehistoric times.
“Older children have been looking at mummification - after an interesting visit from Bexhill Museum staff! So there was a Prehistory Parade in Kingfisher’s class where the children dressed up as cavemen, sabre-tooth tigers and mammoths.”
Other classes also had events that parents could see. Condor’s class had a ‘Mummy Off’ quiz and Nightingale’s class had a Mesopotamian Harvest Celebration.
One of the Kingfisher pupils dressed as a sabre-toothed tiger and a year 6 child made a canopic jar which was used as part of the mummifying process.
The spokesperson said: “We would like to thank all of our parents too who attended this event, we had a great turn-out!”
