Year 3 and 4 Trip to Exeter 

Year 3 and 4 had a fantastic time on their trip to Exeter on Tuesday 30th January. Half the day was spent at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum, where the children took part in different Egyptian activities. One of the activities involved pulling the organs out of a life-sized doll, before wrapping her in linen bandages for mummification. There was also a session learning how to play the Egyptian board game, Senet (one of the oldest in the world), another learning about hieroglyphics and the daily life at Scribe School, and the final one took us on a short tour of the museum, including entering the Egyptian tomb, containing a real mummy!

The other half of the day was spent conquering our fears at Clip and Climb, a fun indoor climbing experience. Year 3 and 4 had the opportunity to tackle a range of different climbing walls here and see how high they could go.

It was a brilliant day, although we all came home rather tired! A big thank you to all the adult helpers who came with us on the day.

 

Year 3s trip to Burrator. 

We had a fantastic time at Burrator Discovery Centre learning about Stone Age and Bronze Age Dartmoor.

We investigated hut circles, had a go at making our own fire and grinding grain, before designing and creating our own Bronze Age huts to sell to each other
