Year 5 Ancient Egypt Trip

Year 5 had a great opportunity to go and visit the British Museum as part of their ‘Pharaohs’ Topic. The class found out about the Rosetta Stone, mummification, gods and goddesses and the Egyptian afterlife. We then got took part in the workshop ‘Excavation in Egypt’, we got to handle replica objects and discover the fascinating contents of an Egyptian tomb and how archaeologists work. In groups, students  investigated what these objects tell us about ancient Egyptians, their lives and beliefs.
