Year 5 visited the Birmingham Museum and Gallery as part of the Pharaohs topic we are learning about. We spent the morning looking around the Ancient Egyptian gallery where we saw artifacts such as sarcophaguses, amulets, tools, hieroglyphs and even a real mummy! We thought carefully about what these artifacts tell us about Ancient Egyptian life, culture, architecture and beliefs. We also used our art skills to sketch some of the artifacts. After lunch, we took part in a mummification workshop. We learnt about all the steps, tools and people who carry out the process. Year 5 had lots of fun on our trip!
