Clay Scarab Beetles

Why were Scarab Beetles so important in Ancient Egyptian Culture? This was the question that Year 4 were researching at the start of the year. We were tasked with presenting our findings on a digital display as well as creating scaled model. This week, Amber and Quartz classes designed and made beetles out of clay using a variety of techniques including moulding and joining using the score and slip technique. I’m sure you would agree the outcomes are fantastic!
