Trip to the British Museum on Thursday 6th October 2022
Year 3 enjoyed an inspirational school trip to The British Museum in London on Thursday 6th October. All of the children showed great enthusiasm exploring the Ancient Egyptian exhibition rooms in the museum. The children walked around the museum and observed Ancient Egyptian sculptures of Gods and Goddesses, Hieroglyphics, Egyptian mummies, including coffins and skeletons! The children discovered evidence about Ancient Egyptians beliefs about the afterlife including amulets and Egyptian treasures buried in coffins. Children discovered that Egyptian people buried valuable and important objects in tombs to help the dead make the journey through to the underworld. All of the children had an opportunity to take a closer look at a selection of objects which were all used in caring for the dead. The children were fascinated by the range of magnificent artefacts and the colossal sculptures with animal heads and carvings that represented all that was great about the Ancient Egyptian world. All of the children were amazing and many were inspired to become archaeologists in the future!
Finally, a great big Thank you and well done to all of the adult volunteers who helped to make our year 3 trip really special on the day. You were all amazing and your support was invaluable.
