Year 5 explore Highclere Castle

Today, Year 5 visited the Egyptian exhibition at Highclere Castle. During the visit they took part in a range of exciting activities such as, creating their own cartouche, dressing in Egyptian clothing and exploring Tutankhamun's tomb by candle light. They also saw relics discovered by Lord Carnarvon, some were over 5,000 years old! Storm Brendan was kind to Year 5 and the sun shone as they took a tour around Highclere Castle's grounds, as well as taking a peek at the Secret Garden. 


The visit has sparked the children's curiosity about the topic and they are looking forward to writing diaries next week about the discovery of the Boy King's tomb. The children were fantastic representatives of Great Binfields today and we were extremely proud of them all.
