Year 5 at the British Museum

On Monday, Year 5 visited the British Museum to enhance their learning about the Ancient Egyptians. Mr Davies writes:

We visited the British Museum for several reasons. Firstly, we saw the legendary Rosetta Stone, which we studied in our Ancient Egypt topic. Next, one of the curators of the Museum gave us a talk about the oldest mummified body there (from approximately 5,500 years ago). Finally, the children had a chance to use mobile phones to create their own multimedia tomb paintings, to represent what they would like in the afterlife, had they lived in ancient Egypt.
