Year 3 Trip to Haslemere Museum
Year 3 visited Haslemere Museum this week to learn all about the Ancient Egyptians. The workshop taught them how long ago and where the Ancient Egyptians lived, what they believed in and how and why they embalmed their dead. They even got to see an actual mummy, several mummified animals, and other ritualistic objects including shabti figures, offerings, hieroglyphics and jewellery. In the afternoon the children got the chance to mummify their own favourite teddies, which proved extremely popular. Many thanks to Haslemere Museum for a fun day of learning!
