P3 become Egyptologists for the day

P3 enjoyed a fantastic visit to the National Museum of Scotland as part of the Ancient Egypt topic on Thursday.

The day included an interactie, fun and engaging workshop led by the learning team at the museum, a quick bite to eat in the group dining area and a tour of the museum led by staff and parents to solve the Egyptian trial challenges.

The children impressed the museum staff with their knowledge of Ancient Egypt and the children enjoyed the opportunity to handle genuine artefacts dating back between 2000 and 4000 years.

Children learned about the use of charms, the process of mummification and the journey people took towards reaching the Afterlife.

P3 had a great time!
