Year 4 Visit the British Museum

Year 4 had the opportunity to explore a wide range of artefacts from Ancient Egypt when they visited the British Museum shortly before half term. They saw the famous Rosetta Stone that provided the key to the modern understanding of Egyptian hieroglyphs, many mummified Egyptian kings and queens, mummified animals and the tools used in the mummification process. The children were also fascinated by Ginger (a naturally preserved man from around 3400 BC) who they had studied in class.

Year 4 thoroughly enjoyed this educational visit and will be producing leaflets detailing all they have learnt throughout this topic.
