On Thursday, year 5 travelled to the Oriental Museum in Durham, where we had a fantastic day learning lots of amazing facts about the Ancient Egyptians. We looked at many different artefacts and even had the chance to hold several, including a 5000 year old pot! It was incredible! Our favourite part was looking at the x-rays from the mummy of a 15 year old child that can be seen in the museum! We couldn’t believe how beautifully the mummy had been wrapped!
