Taverham Hall pupils visit Norwich Castle Museum
Year 3 pupils from Taverham Hall enjoyed a fun packed day at Norwich Castle Museum on Tuesday 28th February learning all about life in Ancient Egypt. They spent the day with various characters including archaeologist Dr Derry and ancient Egyptian Amunet. The children aged 7/8 years learnt more about food and farming and took part in a procession to celebrate the life of Tutankhamen. They found out all about mummification and had the opportunity to wrap each other’s hands in bandages. The children also had time to explore the Egyptian gallery and make some jewellery too!
Quotes from some of the pupils:
Jack .. 'I liked going into the Egyptian gallery and seeing all the treasures'
Carys .. 'I loved looking at the mummy and all the jewellery'
Richard.. 'I liked learning about mummification'
