On Friday 6th December, Year 3 took part in an Egyptian day with  Egyptologists and historians from Durham University.  Throughout the day, the children took part in a range of activities that allowed them to delve into the past and ask questions about their findings.  They investigated x-rays of Egyptian (and Roman) mummies, created an offering table for the afterlife, got hands-on to identify artifacts and even took part in a ‘weighing of the heart’ ceremony, using drama to decide if a Pharaoh should be allowed to transcend to the afterlife.
