05/02/20 Today to help us learn more in our topic about The Ancient Egyptians we went on a school trip to Bolton Museum. During the day the children joined in in a workshop where they made a time line to see how long ago the Egyptians lived. They also explored the Egyptian room and had to mummify one of our children whilst the others took out her insides and placed them in Canopic jars! The children also saw a real life mummy including a mummy of a child aged 3. They explored the Egyptian room to look at the artefacts and were able to dress up in Egyptian costumes. They got to hold real artefacts in the tomb room then watched a video about the afterlife. They loved exploring the rooms to find sources of evidence from the past.
