Visit to The British Musuem
Ancient Egypt comes to life!
Year 3 travelled on the tube this week to The British Museum in London. They visited the galleries that contained artefacts from Ancient Egypt and worked through activities that made the topic they've been learning about in the classroom, come to life!
In particular, Year 3 were fascinated by the mummies and were amazed to see the real things that were used in the process of embalming. Year 3 also made connections between the things they witnessed and the story of Pesah from the Torah.
Finally, Year 3 saw the Rosetta Stone which helped archaeologists translate Ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics.
