Prep IV practise their ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs

The ancient Egyptians invented one of the earliest known writing systems. The symbols they used were called hieroglyphs, which comes from a Greek word meaning ‘sacred carving’. The ancient Egyptians wrote the names of their gods and royal people in an oval shape called a cartouche. The oval shape represents a rope with special powers to ward off evil spirits and keep the name inside it safe. Prep IV made their own cartouches- can you test you knowledge of Egyptian hieroglyphs to see who they have dedicated their cartouches to?
