The pupils heard that one pyramid would be made of about 2.5m pieces of stone, each weighing at least the same as three modern cars, and would have taken 5,000 people almost 20 years to build.

Pupils took on a variety of dramatic roles as they went back in time. Pharaohs and Gods were among the Ancient Egyptians depicted as the class explored myths, legends and facts.
