During Spring term the children enjoyed learning about Egyptians. They made Tutankhamun masks in their art lessons with Miss Blake.
To mark the end of our history topic the Year 3 children dressed up and participated in Egyptian themed activities throughout the day. As part of Enterprise Education within school, as a class we decided to decorate and sell Egyptian themed cakes to children, teachers and parents on this day.
New Walk Museum
For the Year 3 class trip we visited the Egyptian section of New Walk Museum. The children all thoroughly enjoyed the day and had the opportunity to handle artefacts over 3000 years old, try bow drilling, dress up, make clay amulets and remove organs from a doll mummy, placing the organs in the correct canopic jars! The children were lucky enough to have some time to explore the dinosaur and wild space sections of the museum too.
