A mummifying experience for year 3

Posted on: 26 Nov 2015 by Weston Green School | Category: Key Stage 2, Year 3

On a damp and dreary Monday morning, Year 3 visited Haselmere museum as part of their Ancient Egyptian topic. The children were greeted by Kay, the museum educational officer and a buzz of excitement was soon evident. The children were given the opportunity to ‘mummify’ the museum mummy called ‘Suty’, meaning they had to empty his body of all his vital organs. They were also given the chance to see the museum’s real mummy, translate hieroglyphics and analyse different artefacts. After lunch, the children even got to turn their own teddies into mummies, something they found tricky but exciting.

The trip was a fantastic experience where the children were able to visualise what life must have been like during the Ancient Egyptian era and it really helped to develop their knowledge and understanding.
