Western Primary visit ancient Egypt in Harrogate

An early September journey back in time took Western Primary Year 3/4 children back to the Land of the Pharaohs. The pupils visited the Pump Rooms where they house a collection of Ancient Egyptian artefacts, allowing the children to interact and study first hand objects from that distant time and place, bringing learning to life.

The educational experience continued with a short walk to the Mercer Gallery where an informative and entertaining presentation and discussion enhanced the pupil’s knowledge of this wonderful subject.


To round off the visit, a gruesome ritual of mummification was re-created for the children. Willing volunteers were not in short supply when assistance was required to complete the process, which was accomplished amid much mirth and enthusiasm.

Year 3/4 teacher Ms Smith said:

We are studying Ancient Egypt this term. It is wonderful we have such an excellent collection from Ancient Egypt so close to the , allowing the children to experience their education in such an interactive way, learning through the dynamic curriculum we provide at Western Primary.
