Year 5 had a fantastic visit to the Great North Museum today. When we arrived at the museum, we headed straight for the Egyptian Exhibition. Gold Class we set some challenges using the Egyptian pack provided by the museum. There was: a dice to roll to find evidence to match the word; a map to label; de-coding the hieroglyphics and building a pyramid out of lego. Jade class explored the exhibition and completed their workbook then we swapped over.
There was lots of interesting things to look at such as, mummies, egyptian house and pyramids.
After lunch, we explored the rest of the museum. We had a fantastic time at the Great North Museum.
Take a look at some of our pictures.
