Ancient Egyptians in Brighton

Year 3 pupils enjoy mummification workshop at museum

Last week, Year 3 pupils spent a fascinating morning learning about the ancient Egyptians at Brighton Museum. 

The workshop was based on mummification and the journey to the afterlife which proved to be a great hands-on experience for the children. They removed organs and wrapped the bodies of their Egyptian Pharaohs and their shrieks of disgust and excitement could probably be heard back at Hurst! 

Back in the Art room at Hurst, pupils spent the lesson recording their morning through drawings and studies of Egyptian objects.
