Class 3 meet a Mummy

To enrich their learning about Ancient Egypt Class 3 visited The Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge.  First we were led to a huge granite statue of the Pharaoh Ramses where the children were given the opportunity to share what they already knew with an expert guide and to find out lots more!  They were all were fascinated and engaged throughout the session and asked lots of sensible questions. They then got a chance to explore the galleries for themselves and to find their favourite artefact.

The afternoon was spent in the Art room where everyone designed and made their own Canopic Jars.  The children were incredibly creative with their design ideas and the resulting jars are fantastic.
