Year 4 British Museum Trip

A REPORT OF THE BRITISH MUSEUM TRIP READ IN ASSEMBLY BY YEAR 4 PUPILS

On Monday 20th January, Year 4 went to the British Museum. It was fun! My favourite part was when we went to see Ginger the mummy, who is 5400 years old! He is called Ginger because he has little tufts of ginger hair in some places. He has been sand-dried, which means all of his organs were removed and he was left in the sand to dry.

(F Scarbrough)

We were given a talk about Ancient Egyptian afterlife. At the beginning of the talk, we were asked to shout for the most ancient teacher to go up and be a scribe. We got Mr Booth Jones up on stage by shouting his name the loudest! In the afterlife, he had to pass tests like naming all of the Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt. If he failed he would get his head chopped off by a sharp knife!

(A Faure Walker)

Our first task, when exploring the galleries, was to find six different Egyptian symbols. These came in the form of engravings on statues and huge stones. Some were easier to find than others! When we were looking we also saw the Rosetta Stone, found by the French, and the reason we are able to understand hieroglyphs.

Next we entered the Viking Gallery. It was really cool. We saw jewellery, swords, helmets, a shield, a drinking horn and many more interesting things. My favourite object was the drinking horn. To use it you would have needed a lot of practice!

(E Wood)

My favourite part, like Freya, was when went to see Ginger. It was very interesting because after thousands of years dead people normally don’t have any hair, nails or skin. I enjoyed it because we also got to see other dead mummies in coffins.

(G Owen)

The preserved Egyptian mummies were a bit gruesome because on some of them you saw bones or old skin. Finally, we were shown some Egyptian wall paintings from Nebamun’s tomb, who was a rich accountant that we had studied in class.

(E Wood)

The best parts of the trip were seeing the mummies and how they were wrapped, seeing the Rosetta Stone, seeing the stone heads of pharaohs, and learning about the hieroglyphs.

Thank you to our teachers for taking us on such an interesting trip.

Year 6 Geography trip to the River Cuckmere and Seven Sisters Country Park.

12 March 2020

Whilst the heavy rain did make the trip via Alfriston village a little tricky it also served to highlight the spectacular meanders and creeks of the River Cuckmere’s floodplain in the Spring sunshine and allow the ‘New Cut’ to be in full spate and speed along to the sea at low tide. As it did so the fast-flowing water actively undercut and eroded the shingle beach causing mini land or ‘shingle’ slides before our very eyes.
