Creating zines about Ancient Egypt in Year 5

Year 5 have been learning about Ancient Egypt. As part of their work in art, the children have begun to create ‘zines’ about Ancient Egyptian Art.

A ‘zine’ is usually kind of like a magazine but with a twist.  They are usually made out of
interest and passion and are often self-published by the writer/artist/creator.

Typically zines are made using paper collage techniques and are then photocopied. The children used paper to create their zines, and used Maths to ensure that all the sides were equal when they were folding their paper. They quickly caught on and began to work on their title pages. Look back later to see our finished zines!

In the meantime check out the photos of our process to make the zines.
