Form One pupils at Exeter Junior School learn about Ancient Egypt

20 Jan 2014

On Monday 13 January 2014 , the children in Form One were taken back to Ancient Egypt.

Mr Neil Heasman, from Exeter’s Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery (RAMM), explained the work of an archaeologist and Howard Carter’s amazing discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb.

The children then imagined and acted out the role of an archaeologist: digging, finding an important discovery and carefully excavating the area.

They also looked closely at artefacts – some real and some replicas.

The mummification of Serena took place in the afternoon, with all the children playing a role, and this was performed to the parents.

Thank you to everyone that came to watch as the children really enjoy showing their parents what they do in school.
