SEEING REAL EGYPTIAN ARTEFACTS
If you want to see real Ancient Egyptian Artefacts then one of the *BEST* places to see them is at the British Museum in London.
The Museum is free, which is great. It also holds the largest collection of Egyptian objects outside Egypt.
Highlights include the Rosetta Stone, a 5,000 year old sand-dried mummy, wall paintings from Nebamun’s tomb and sculptures of Ramesses II.
Something to consider is TUTANKHAMUN: Treasures of the Golden Pharaoh
In residence at the Saatchi Gallery from Saturday 2 November 2019 - Sunday 3 May 2020, the exhibition commemorates the 100th anniversary of the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb, and is the final chance to see these world heritage artefacts before they return to Egypt forever.
Explore the life of King Tutankhamun through more than 150 pieces from the tomb. This is three times the quantity that has travelled in previous exhibitions - more than 60 of which are travelling outside of Egypt for the first time.
This is a very rare opportunity to experience the wonder and mystery of the king before these priceless objects return to Egypt forever.
BE THE BEST FRIDAYS
Every half term, each individual Year Group works with a teacher or skilled adult to complete an exciting project. They may do forest school, sewing, PE, etc..
Currently, the Year 4s are working will Miss Mills on a community based project.
The Year 3s are working with myself to complete a large scale art project.
Last week, the pupils went around the school looking for locations to put a piece of artwork. This week they came up with possible designs for that artwork.
Keep an eye out!
