Year 3 enjoyed their 'Introduction to Ancient Egypt Day' led by Horsham Museum.

“The lady brought things in from the museum.”

“I liked dressing up.”

“I liked it because there were real things to look at.”

“It was really cool when we saw some 5,000 year old Ancient Egyptian artefacts!”

“I liked acting out mummifying and pulling things out.”

“I really liked holding the items and passing them on.”

“I liked learning about mummification.”

“I think that it was really awesome looking at the Ancient Egyptian Tomb things.”
