Year 3 Visit to Birmingham Museum

16 June 2017

As part of their topic work on Ancient Egyptians, Year 3 visited Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery.

Whilst there they took part in a variety of activities. They attended a Mummification Workshop and learned how the bodies of the Pharaohs were mummified to prepare them for the afterlife.

They also looked around the Ancient Egypt Gallery to view ancient artefacts. Finally, they attended an Ancient Egyptian Art Workshop, where they looked at some artwork and were then able to have a go themselves at painting on papyrus with inks.

The children had an enjoyable, informative day and their behaviour was impeccable.
