Ancient Egypt comes to life
On Thursday 10th November Upper IA and Upper I Alpha went on a voyage of discovery to the British Museum. For this visit Upper I focussed on Ancient Egypt. They took part in a workshop about the Ancient Egyptian afterlife and toured the Egyptian galleries.
Here are some of their comments:
‘The British Museum was amazing! My favourite part was seeing all the coffins and the mummified people and animals. The priest’s coffin was gigantic, and there was even a mummified cat!, said Leeyana Vamathevan (Upper I Alpha).
While Roma Patel, Upper I Alpha, said that ‘My favourite part was when I saw the Rosetta Stone and the unwrapped mummy. I also enjoyed the workshop!’
Niamh McDermott, Upper I Alpha, had this to say, ‘My favourite part of the trip was seeing the giant sarcophagus and the mummified cat, bull and crocodile. I also liked the jars because they had no missing bits and they weren’t broken. I learned that people were buried with amulets for good luck and that they had different sizes of sarcophagus.’
And Claudia Edison, Upper I Alpha, added, ‘Overall I think the trip was amazing, the best one yet! My favourite part was when I saw the Rosetta stone. I really liked the museum because it was very interesting.’
Thank you to Miss O’Connell and Ms Gambrill who took Upper I on such an exciting expedition!
