Last Tuesday, Year 6 went on a excursion to the Nicholoson Museum and the IMAX theatre.
First, we went on a bus that took us to the museum and studied amazing artifacts and learnt about the ancient history of Egypt, following last term’s HSIE topic. We saw many objects ranging from mummies to a gigantic Lego city. After that, we even got to touch and explore ancient artifacts up close. A few artifacts we got to hold and study included bowls, canopic jars and scarab beetles. It was amazing to know that these objects had survived long enough for us to see.
After the trip to the museum, the bus took us to the IMAX theatre in Darling Harbour, where we watched a fascinating 3D documentary teaching us about mummification in Ancient Egypt. It greatly expanded our knowledge on Egypt.
It was a great day and Year 6 enjoyed the excursion very much.
On July the 28th, Year 6 went to the IMAX to watch a 3D documentary about Ancient Egypt. It explained the mummification process and the history behind it, the Valley of the Kings, and Abu Simbel. I taught us slot as we were learning Ancient Egypt as the topic for HSIE. The documentary was just under one hour, with gave us a chance to relax, rest our sore feet and catch up with friends.
