Year 5 had a fantastic day at the Manchester Museum, after spending the half term learning about the Ancient Egyptians it was great to put our knowledge to the test in the Ancient Egyptian workshop. From building pyramids to handling artefacts over 3000 years old, the workshop provided a great opportunity to consolidate our learning. We met Asru the 2700 year old Egyptian Mummy and got to learn lots about her life in Ancient Egypt. After a yummy lunch we explored the rest of the museum, particularly enjoying the living worlds galleries. The children has a brilliant day and they were great ambassadors of St Mary’s, with the museum staff commenting on their enthusiasm, engagement and behaviour – well done Year 5!
