Scafell Pupils Visit Liverpool World Museum


Pupils from years 5 & 6 enjoyed an amazing day at The Liverpool World Museum on Friday as part of their learning on The Ancient Egyptians.  During the morning, the pupils explored five floors of galleries that included displays about dinosaurs, bugs, space, time, the natural world; and also exhibits related to Ancient Egypt.

After an enjoyable picnic lunch, the children became archaeologists for the afternoon.  Wearing gloves to protect the genuine artefacts, we became detectives in deciphering hieroglyphs and identifying mystery objects and their uses.  The workshop provided an incredible opportunity to get up close to some items dating back 3000 years including: kohl pots, canopic jars, a mummified cat, amulets, figurines and funerary cones.

Take a look at our photos from the day. Caution some are not for the squeamish…. look out for the mummified hand complete with intact fingernails!!
