Visit from Egyptologist – Philip Harris

Yesterday our Lower 4 pupils were visited by Egyptologist, Philip Harris (aka Mr Egypt) who introduced them to their new topic for this term.

He showed pupils some real Egyptian artifacts, taught them about the Valley of the Kings and Tutankhamun, and all about how pyramids were tombs for pharaohs. He explained the burial process the bodies would go through and even taught the pupils how to wrap a mummy! It was a fascinating lesson and the children had great fun pretending to be mummys. Thank you Philip for coming in to teach us all about Egypt!
