CHILDREN at Dinton School stepped back in time to the days of ancient Egypt.

The children from Kingfisher class dressed up and learned all about how to make papyrus paper using reeds as well as studying Egyptian maths and learning all about mummification.

The youngsters have also been learning about the Fovant Badges with the help of students from Southampton University.

Meanwhile, pupils from Puffin class took a closer look at nature on a wander in the Dinton woodland before they headed off to Wilton Garden Centre to compare the plants found there to those they had spotted growing in the wild.

The school’s sports stars have also been busy, with Year 6 taking part in the Quad Kids sporting challenge at St Edmund’s School in Salisbury, where they came fifth out of 14 teams.

And the tag rugby team from years 5 and 6 competed in the county championship in Trowbridge.
