Life and Death in Ancient Egypt

Children in year 3 visited the Oriental Museum in Durham this week to discover all about  life and death in Ancient Egypt to enhance their class topic. The class travelled back in time to the land of the Pharaohs to experience what life was like thousands of years ago. The visit gave pupils the chance to experience various aspects of life in Ancient Egypt. Children explored the  collections and particularly liked seeing a real 3,000 year old mummy! Children were given the opportunity to handle real artefacts and took part in role play. Pupils studied the significance of mummies and mummification and they asked the guide some very interesting and challenging questions.  Stevie from year 3 even had the opportunity to be  mummified and she was sent on her way to the afterlife (don’t worry she was not harmed in this activity!) . Some exciting learning carried on in the classroom too when the children celebrated the class Pharaoh’s 6,400th birthday. He even got a birthday cake which was kindly made by Kaitlin.

Well done year 3!
