Ancient Egyptian Cartouche Creation
As part of the Year 3's deeper dive learning into the Ancient Egyptian Civilisation we used our Cartouche designs and started creating them out of clay. We managed to get outside into the fading light as the Egyptian Sun God, Ra, watched over us.
A cartouche is a name plate. It's usually oval with your name written in the middle of it. A cartouche is attached to your coffin.
The ancient Egyptians wanted to make sure that their two souls - the Ba and the Ka - could find their way back to their tomb at night, after they died. No one wanted their Ba or Ka to get lost.
