Year 4 Egyptian Day

Year 4 had a very exciting day on Wednesday 12th December. We had an Egyptian day! Manchester Museum staff visited school and they brought along an amazing inflatable museum and some Ancient Egyptian artefacts. Some of us dressed up as pharaohs, soldiers and mummies and we wore necklaces and death masks that we had made in class.

Whilst in the inflatable museum we became curators, we had to look at many different artefacts and discuss what they were, we then chose 4 that we would put in an Egyptian exhibition. After that, we had ‘Opening Night’ and had to introduce our museums to our friends and explain why we chose the different artefacts. In class we made canopic jars.
