Weston Park Museum

On Tuesday/Wednesday 5th/6th February, all the children in Y5 and Y6 visited Weston Park Museum in Sheffield to take part in a workshop to find out more about the Ancient Egyptians.  During the day in the museum they were fascinated by the real ‘mummies’ and their original coffins with hieroglyphics covering their surfaces.  Whilst pretending to ‘mummify’ a body, they learnt all about the gruesome things that were performed on the dead to ensure the bodies were able to go to the ‘afterlife’.
