On Tuesday, Year 3 took a very exciting trip to the Silk Museum in Macclesfield as an introduction to their new topic - Ancient Egyptians. They learnt a lot of information, including details about mummification, Marianne Brocklehurst and the Egyptian Gods! They enjoyed seeing many of the items Marianne collected on her travels as well as making their own Anubis masks. Unpacking suitcases filled with replica artefacts provided great interest. The children were impeccably behaved and participated brilliantly. I'm sure they enjoyed sharing many fascinating facts with their families after the day.
