Egyptian Day

Over the past two days, both the Y3 classes have been and enjoyed a fantastic day at Weston Park learning all about the afterlife and how to embalm a mummy!

The children were very curious and asked some great questions about Ancient Egypt, mummies and all the artefacts they saw. They found it interesting to know the mummies were x-rayed to see if they contained real bodies.They really enjoyed seeing how they used to remove all the organs to place in canopic jars!!

The children had to be really careful when holding the artefacts as some of them are thousands of years old!
