Year 4 Trip to Brighton Museum
On Wednesday 25th September, Year Four visited Brighton Museum to find out more about the Ancient Egyptians!
We participated in a mummification workshop in which the children were excellent at recalling all the amazing facts that they have already learnt. We had to carry out all of the steps of the mummification process including hooking out the brains through the nose and removing internal organs! Maise and Thomas made brilliant Egyptian priests as they cast spells over the wrapped bodies and kept everyone in order. Marcel and Jessica were also powerful Gods and Goddesses who chose the fate of the pharaohs!
After lunch we had the chance to explore some of the fantastic Egyptian artefacts in the museum galleries. We enjoyed comparing their jewellery to the sort we would wear nowadays and solving the riddles to find the different Gods and Goddesses.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable day!
