This week saw our Year 3 boys enjoy their first trip into central London as an extension of their art and history studies. The Ancient Egyptians were brought to life as the boys became museum researchers following in the footsteps of Flinders Petrie and the discoveries he made. The Petrie Museum of Egyptian Archelogy, named after its founder – the pioneering archaeologist – first opened its doors in 1915. The museum holds more than 80, 000 objects and is one of the largest and finest collections of Egyptian archelogy in the world. Year 3 boys explored with awe and wonder at the exhibits on display!
Whilst the boys were suitably impressed with the experience that the Petrie Museum provided, the teaching colleagues accompanying the trip were equally impressed and proud of our Year 3 boys. Throughout the day, they demonstrated excellent listening skills, perfect manners and fantastic collaboration, representing our School in the best possible way. Everyone back at school was very pleased indeed to receive this feedback! There is no doubting the benefits that these sorts of experiences have on our pupils’ personal development.
