    Richard, who is the chairman of Moorside Primary School’s Parent-Teacher Association in Lancaster, Lancashire, 말했다: ‘I have a history of making stuff for the PTA so my boy’s teacher asked him in class if he thought I could build one and he came out of school one day with the message to have a chat with her!

    ‘It was a challenge but I thought I could give it a good go, so I went away, had a think and managed to create this in a matter of weeks.

    ‘The schoolkids were quite excited by it from the feedback I received from the Year Three teaching team when us parents were invited in after school on the museum day.

    ‘The kids were showing it off to the parents and various classes at school went to see it as well as the projects that the Year Three pupils had made.

    ‘It even got quite a bit of attention from the passing children of the school next door as we carried off to the car on Fridaywe had to keep stopping on the pavement so Alexander could show them!

    ‘I’m really pleased with how it all came togetherit turned out better than expected! I’d definitely do something like this again.

    Richard 말했다: ‘I looked up the sarcophagus of Tutankhamun for inspiration and a few styling cues to make it at least a little historically accurate for school rather than totally made up.

    ‘The mummified pharaoh inside was a left over Halloween prop which I bulked out with more polystyrene and pipe installation before using paper mache on the head.

    ‘Dying the mummy’s bandages with tea was a failure! Apart from making the whole house stink like a tea merchants, by the time we had washed the smell of tea out them, they were nearly normal colour again!’

    그는 말했다: '내가 정직하다면, it turned out better than I thought!

    ‘So much so, I’ll be offering it to few friends who are teachers and governors at local schools to see if they’d like it when they do ancient Egypt as it seems too good to hide in a cellar for a year.

    ‘It cost about £250 to do but I count the cost as my charity gift to the school and an investment as it’ll get used more than once.

    ‘I’d definitely do it again. I’ll let the teachers come up with the idea for what might inspire or enthuse the pupils that would be a genuine teaching aid and support in what ever way I can.

    ‘I’ll also use it as a plug to encourage parent, grandparent, 청문회에서는 Fitzpatrick이 다른 사람이 이해할 수 없는 비밀 언어를 사용하여 십대와 의사 소통했다고 들었습니다., family involvement and participation with school and PTA.

    ‘So many schools are struggling with tight budgets and resources, I’m sure there are others who are equally and better creatives than I am who could offer support.
