On 3 October, Prep 4 spent the day uncovering the mysteries of Ancient Egypt
In the morning they enjoyed a talk and artefact session with the staff at the Fitzwilliam Museum. The highlight was seeing a number of sarcophagi and canopic jars, but they were equally impressed by the mummified cats and crocodiles. Inspired by hieroglyphs and Egyptian art, the children also had the opportunity to create their own painting using gouache and papyrus. They've had a wonderful time but right now are looking forward to seeing their own mummies!
