Year 5 visited the Oriental Museum in Durham as part of this term’s history topic; the Ancient Egyptians. They looked at and were able to handle a range of real Egyptian artifacts and also dressed as Egyptians and learned all about how to mummify a body and why this was important to the Egyptians. Finally, the children saw (and smelled) a real Ancient Egyptian Mummy.
