  1. We had a fantastic time exploring the Ancient Egyptian galleries at The British Museum.
    We were able to answer most of our questions that we asked at the beginning of our topic and it gave us chance delve further into the history.
    My favourite part of the museum was looking at the 5000 year old sand- dried mummy- I was shocked at how life like it still looked. I also enjoyed looking at the Rosetta stone and learning how it enabled the Ancient Egyptians to translate hieroglyphics.
    I am now really excited for Egypt Day to continue our exciting and investigative learning.

      Firstly, we were given a booklet and put in groups. I felt excited that we were going to the Museum because we were going to see the tombs. Then, we got onto the bus and then the train.
      When we got to the museum we had our fruit break. Next, we set off to Room 4, Egyptians. In the booklet, there was questions we had to answer like can you find this statue and some hieroglyphics that we had to spot on tombs. We saw models of people sailing down the River Nile, what people wore and lots and lots of tombs with hieroglyphics on them. I learnt that the Egyptians did much harder jobs then we do now and lots of these jobs are different then the jobs that you can do now. Like planning a Pharaoh or cooking for the Queen.
      After that, we had our scrumptious lunch. I had a pack of sweetcorn, some nice vegetables along with Jamey doges and sandwiches. After that, we started our journey home. We got on the tube at Tottenham court road and arrived at Ealing Broadway. Next, we got on the bus back to school.
      My favourite part was when we saw this colossal statue of Ramesses the second. It was so big that the museum could only fit the head in the museum. I was so happy that we went to the museum to see all the amazing, extraordinary things.

  2. Wow! Year 4 are SO lucky to have been on this trip and I wish I’d been there as well! However, I look forward to reading your blogs and sharing your thoughts. I know that you will blog responsibly using ALL of your sentence skills.
    The pyramids have always been part of my imagination because they are SO amazing! All the different gods and goddesses are also fascinating. Please tell me what you found out because I want to see it for myself again soon!
    PS: Can you remember our, ‘Amazing Egyptians’ song?

  3. On Monday 5th November 2018,
    Me and the rest of Year 4 went to the British Museum. We used public transport, despite it being very busy, we managed to get there.
    When we arrived at the Museum, we put our bags away and went upstairs to Gallery 61-65. We saw so many fascinating artefacts such as tiny sculptures of boats, houses tombs and many more.We even saw coffins!
    We saw many tourists too. There were larger than life size models with hieroglyphics .
    We were filling in our worksheets as we looked around and finished them when we reached the lunch hall.We were starving! We had our lunch, mine was sandwiches,carrots with humus and crackers. It was delicious! After a while of talking with my group, ( Who was Kenzo, Casper, Alisha, Sevanna, and Eleanor) we packed our bags and left.

    In conclusion, if you ever have a chance to go to the British Museum, you should definitely accept it!

  4. first we got into groups,next we walked to the bus stop it took a long time but the bus finally came.After the short journey we went on the Tube when we got there we had fruit break I had grapes they were great. After that we saw some mummies. They were quite creepy, I even saw a mummified fish!Next we had lunch.After that we saw some statues of pharaohs and gods some statues were massive.we also had a book with questions in it we answered everything.It was time to go now. When we were at school we quickly did the register and went home. I had an amazing day and a good school trip.

  5. On Monday 5th November we went on an amazing trip to the British Museum,it was fantastic! We traveled on public transport to get to the Museum. First, we had fruit break by the lockers ,I had apple and strawberry, yum! Next, we took an activity sheet and got into threes. My three was me Zara and Bianca. Secondly, we looked at some statues and completed the first page of the sheet. Next,we went into a room with lots of paintings . We also got to see what Egyptians wore on their feet! They wore sandals and flip-flops. After that,we looked at some Mummies, one I think was called the Geballian Man . They think he died from a wound on his shoulder that pushed his lungs. After that, we went back to the lockers to have lunch. I had a wrap, delicious! When lunch was finished we found our adult and they did counting before we left . We walked out of the Museum and all the way to the station. We traveled back on public transport . 1 hour later, we arrived at NES and went back to the classroom. When we were ready we went downstairs and found our parents to go home.

  6. On Monday 5th of November all of year 4 went to the British Museum to find out why people are so fascinated in the Ancient Egyptians . We all got there by public transport. By the time we got there,there was an immensely huge cylinder in the middle that said ”5000 BC-4500 AD”.The rest of the group I was in went down to the locker room to put our coats and packed lunch away. We then went up the steps and we were back where we began. We climbed up nine flights of steps as it got higher and higher and it was so exciting.
    We were going to explore room 61-65. We first went to room 63 and you’d never guess what? There was a REAL mummified human in one of the display boxes. I was terrified!
    We all got a question sheet and our group had a nominated writer. We answered the questions and we saw loads of coffins in room 65.
    There was mandatarian man getting mummified by nature.

  7. Before going to the museum today, we sorted out the groups that we were going to be in and when we got there we put our things in the lockers. We then did a task whilst exploring the museum to find and match the right pictures with the information. We saw lots of coffins of different sizes, as well as mummies and their lovely jewellery and lots of pyramids which I found very interesting! We did this for more than 60 minutes and at about 1.30pm, we ate our lunch. I ate a sandwich, banana, bread sticks and drunk water. After lunch, we were allowed to chill out for 20 minutes before leaving the museum. We then all got on the train and after 14 stops; we arrived at Ealing Broadway station. We then took 1 bus back to the school from outside the train station and arrived back at school at 3.30pm.

  8. A few days ago, we went to the British Museum! The first thing we did when we arrived at school was put on our hi- vis jackets and rubber bands. Next, table by table we went to the toilets, since we were going to go on the train.Once everyone had gone, we were split into groups.

    Since we were all ready, we went to the bus stop to take us to the train station.After spending a while on the bus, we finally arrived in Ealing Broadway station.We got on the train and squeezed into the seats before the train set of to the first stops.After half an hour of waiting we finally arrived at Tottenham Court road!

    From there, we walked to the British Museum!I was super excited! We put all our stuff in the lockers and ate our scrumptious fruit break. Afterwards, we were all given a quiz to fill in by going to different rooms. We had to find things on the sheet and answer lots of questions about it, so we hurried to the 61st room which was our 1st one on the list. There we found tombs of kings and even a mummified cat!

    In the 4th room, we found a huge statue of Rameses that weighed over a ton. We also found a statue of a beautiful lion and make our own. Ours was a lovely, marble, white lion. We even had to search for certain Hieroglyphics. Finally, it was time for lunch! I had a wrap, vegetable sticks and some crisps. Then it was sadly time to leave the museum. We took the train, then the bus until we arrived back at school. When we got back we neatly folded our hives-jacket and put our rubber bands. After that we all went home and that was the end of the trip!

    1. Sounds like a great day! You saw so much and your lunch sounded fantastic! If you could take ONE thing away from the museum, what would it be?

  9. On Monday 5 November 2018 all of year 4 went to the British Museum.We all went in groups of 6 with an adult on public transport.When we got there everyone went into a room with lockers and everyone put their belongings away.After that we went to gallery -63 first and i saw some mummies with pots round them and some more pots with mummy organs. Secondly, we went to gallery -64 and i saw some beautifully coloured coffins. The coffins were between 1000 BC-3000 BC years old and then me and my group went looking for some more stuff and two minutes later i found some ancient,decrepit jewels. Those jewels were so colourful e.g blue and red.A mean while later, we went outside to play for 5 minutes and then we went to the lockers and waited for 10 minutes for the others to come. When they all came we had our lunch.I had two sandwiches,a pack of crisps and a water bottle.When we finished our lunch we went we went outside and we walked to the tube station and we got on the second train to Ealing Broadway and then we walked to the bus station and we got on the bus which took us back to school. When we got back to school we put our hives-jackets and wrist bands away and we went down stairs to go home. I really enjoyed the trip and i can’t wait for the next trip!

  10. It was a very interesting way to spend the day. I really enjoyed seeing the hieroglyphics on the mummy cases and trying to work out what they meant. I think I saw some letters that we still use today.

  11. First we had to go out to get bags and go in groups.
    Then we had to go inside the bus. Next we went in the train station. Afer a wile we arrived to the museum . This was bad luck all of us need to write oh no! Love deadly things like dead mummies .
    The ending.

  12. One week ago, year 4 went to the British Museum to learn about Egyptians. Before we went we had to put on our hivis-jackets and a band which was left on our tables. We had to go to the toilet just in case we didn’t have to go on the way, then we got into groups. We got our pack-lunches, ready to go!

    We got on to a double deck bus and we sat on the top. After spending time in the bus a little, we eventually arrived at the Undergroud and just made it on time to step in the train. After twenty to fourty minutes, the train stoped at Tottenham Court road and it was time to step out of the train. After a ten minute walk, we finally arrived at main part of the trip, the British Museum! We strolled in and went to the very down stairs, where schools had there lunch and where they put there stuff, so we took out our fruit break and hung up our stuff.

    When we went out , we got a worksheet to fill in, one between three. The last question was the most hardest when you had to find something that was part of an Egyptain pyramid, it took us ages and ages to figure out what it was, but, eventually, we found out in the end (It was so hard, Miss Rafiq didn’t even know! Or did she?).

    Later on we went on to a whole different room about Egyptians again, but this time it was HUMUNGOUS!!! It wasn’t long until everyone was LITERALLY starving because we had our lunch at 1:15 – 1:30 and everyone was asking Miss Rafiq what the time was! EVERYONE was relieved when we had lunch! We lined up and took our stuff.

    We took the train to Ealing Broadway and walked into a bus to our school (North Ealing School, NES). We packed our stuff and went outside to see our parents. And that is how our trip ends.

  13. One week ago, we went to the British Museum!
    First, we went to school and we all got our stuff ready to go to the British Museum.
    It was really exciting and off we went!

    It was a great journey but it was quite long. I was sitting next to Scarlett and Makeez. Eventually, we got there. After, we put our stuff away and went to explore!

    A few minutes after, we went into a room where we could see lots of mummies and some of them were in tombs.

    After that, we all got a quiz that we had to answer with our partners. Our teachers gave them to us. We went to lots of different rooms, and tried to answer all the questions.

    An hour after that, we had a delicious lunch! I had a ham bagel, crisps, fruit, vegetables and yoghurt.

    When everyone was done, it was time to go back. It was one of the best days ever!

  14. On Monday 5th November, Year 4 students visited the British Museum to explore Ancient Egypt. I was slightly afraid because I found some of the exhibitions, such as mummies, creepy.
    After putting our things away, we took a tour of the Ancient Egypt rooms. I found mummies creepy but finding out they were made fascinating.

    My favourite part was to see the differences in mummies. We took a closer look at how they were wrapped it!

    I really enjoyed learning about every day life in Ancient Egypt too.
    For example, how they made their food and clothing. The jewellery showed amazing design and craftsmanship.

  15. Guess what?!
    On Monday (5th November) we went to the best museum ever… The British Museum! Our mission was to find out as much about the ancient Egyptians as we could in one day. With my partner Ella and our group leader Mr Wareing I scoured the galleries for ancient Egyptian relics. Our worksheet guided us to many things, such as:
    • Ancient hieroglyphs and symbols
    • The sarcophagus of Hapmen
    • Statues of gods and goddesses
    • Paintings and mosaics
    • Beaded jewellery
    • Woven shoes
    • Fake doors
    • Mummies and tombs
    My favourite exhibit was the fake doors. They were massive! It was breath-taking just looking at them! How could they make it? I mean, they didn’t have the internet or super glue!
    Anyway, back to the Egyptians. I also saw a giant scarab beetle. Don’t worry, it wasn’t real! It was carved out of stone, at least I think it was! I quite liked the sarcophaguses of all the dead Pharaohs because the patterns and pictures were very interesting.
    Our school trip was very exciting and I hope we go there again!

    1. Wow Emma- what a fantastic blog. Well done! It sounds like you had a great time. Did the doors put the size of pyramids in perspective?
      Miss Pitt

  16. On Monday 5th November Miss Pitt put us in groups of six. We all got hi-vis jackets and then we went outside and we took public transport.

    When we got there we went downstairs to put our stuff away, and then went back upstairs. We went to room 64, where we had questions to answer on our worksheet. We saw things that the Egyptians used in their lives, such as pots for eating and storing food. We also saw a not mummified body of an Egyptian . Half of his body was kept under stone and the other half had nothing on it. It was laid down on sand. It was more than 5000 years old!

    We also saw the decorated coffins for mummies. They had beautiful pictures.

    Then we went to room 61 where we had to spot certain hieroglyphics, which was quite hard.

    Finally it was time for lunch. I sat with my group and had a sandwich and grapes which were delicious. Sadly it was time to go back to school. When we got to school we put away our hi-vis jackets and went home. That was the end of the day!

  17. On Monday 5th November all of Year 4 went to the British Museum to find out about the Ancient Egyptian. We went there by bus and train.
    When we went inside, I was so surprised. It was fantastic! There was a tall tower of maybe Egyptian’s? And there was a shop. When I peered the shop ,l can see a stuffed-toys of Jackle, some cups and any things. But gallery looked more fantastic! You could see a lot of cases. In the case ,there was a Egyptian thing like Mummies, built and drawn paper of pictures. I was so excited! I was interested in Egypt word ( for example,ankh). My best one was something like model. It was drawn by paint and my favorite model was boat. On the boat there were people and mummies. Our group leader said”In Ancient Egyptian, when special people dies,people made it Mummies and went down the River Nile.”
    In gallery 4,there were lots of monuments, which were animal, god and human. What do you think it was ? It was all bigger than adults size. All monuments had words. There were a lot of ankh. Gallery 4 was last room. We went to the rocker and had a lunch. Then, we went back to school. It was a very very fun trip. I want to come to see things again. See you soon, Museum.

  18. On Monday 5th November all of year 4 went to the British Museum. We went in groups of six, our group leader made sure we didn’t get lost. It was an immensely long journey.
    Finally we reached our destination. The adults gave us a question sheet. I was mesmerised by all the ancient mummies and bones. I also found out that hyrogliphics on the coffin is a story about the person who died. Eg: A girl called Resti. We also found out how ancient Egyptians survived and lived. There were several statue ruins of famous emperors. Finally, we had understood why people are so fascinated by Ancient Egyptians. We had to look out for special Egyptian symbols as we enthusiastically pranced around, observing the ancient objects.
    At last we had finished and we had found out all the questions in the sheet. So then we all lined up to go back into the coach.

  19. On Monday 5th November we went on a school trip to the British Museum it was absolutely amazing. When we arrived at the museum I was looking forward to the day. First, we put all our luggage in the lockers. Then we saw ancient Pharos, it was awesome! Slowly we moved on to the hieroglyphics it was very fascinating although it was rather completing. Me, Ayah and Andrea were in a group, we were answering our worksheets. After we went upstairs when we got up we were looking at what Egyptians would of wore during the time. After that, we went and saw an actual dead mummy it was from Egypt and it was all brown because its skin was burned then we did another activity then we had lunch.We arrived back to school.

  20. Our trip to the British Museum
    Before we went anywhere Miss Rafiq put us into five different groups and then we were ready to go.
    Secondly, we had to get on the bus to go to the train station .It took quite a long time but I kept myself occupied by spotting and mice on the rails.
    When we got there it was all very exciting and we all wanted to go to different places but first we had to put our things away.
    After all that hassle we went upstairs to the Museum part to look around. We were then given some quizzes/questions and had to complete them by looking around the Museum.
    There were lots of Coffins everywhere you looked! Our first task was to find things like a lotus flower on papyrus paper and stuff like that. We found out interesting facts too!
    As the day went by, we had looked around in all the rooms upstairs so we needed to go downstairs and look around.
    In that room, we found millions of examples of ancient pieces of paper that are hundreds of years old! We all saw the Rosetta Stone and it was huge!!!!!!!!! There was a massive statue of King Rameses the II and it weighed over 7 tones!!!!!!!!! I saw lots of fake doors too.
    After that, we figured out the steps of mummification then we met back downstairs at 12:15 to have lunch. In my packed lunch I had sandwiches, a yogurt, an orange, water and some bits and bobs.
    Eventually, it was time to head back and on our back to the exit we saw some mummified bodies and skulls.
    Finally, we got to the exit and went back to the train station to go to school. It has been a lovely day and all very exiting. By for now.

  21. Welcome Egyptians ! Read all about our trip to the British muesiem and leave a comment below. On Monday the 5th of November we used public transport to get to the huge museum. First we used the double decker bus,which was so fun since you could see every car on the wide roads of Ealing. Oh and the tubes were the best part of it. Every time the dazzling train moved you would fly backwards very quickly. At the station the escalators were so long you would be on them for ages.we arrived at the muesiem every cheerful and walked through gallery 61-65 ansawering every question on the worksheet we were given. We ended the day with a delicious lunch. Mine was crisps,chocolate,yogurt and my favourite sandwich. As we arrived at the lunch room we saw Hyrogliphices just as we saw in the gallery.we also saw other Egyptian things.We took the tube back to school and went home.Read all the adventures of 4p

  22. On the trip to the British Museum my group leader was Miss Reeve-Tucker and my partner was Imke. When we arrived at the Museum we got into threes for our work sheets. I was with Imke and Bianca.

    First we went to find different hieroglyphics ,such as “ankh” . We found them on all sorts of tombs and stones. The most hieroglyphics we found were “ankh” and the least were ”uranus”.
    Afterwards we saw mummys and tombs, the tombs were covered in pictures and hieroglyphics .

    Then we looked at a freaky Gabelien man who was just left in the sand after he died , but he was well preserved and he still has some hair! We then went to go and eat our lunch .Finally, we went back to school and then went home.

  23. I really liked going to the British Museum, because it has the biggest collections of Ancient Egyptian art outside Egypt. That is where the Rosetta Stone is kept. It is a big stone with Egyptian hieroglyphs translated in other languages so people could read them.
    My favourite objects were the old Mummies, especially when they were in their coffins. It was strange to see animal mummies and cat mummies as well.
    In the Assyrian room, we saw a lamassu. It is an imaginary scary animal that protect the buildings. It has a human head, the body of a lion, and 5 legs!

  24. I woke up and it was going to be an exciting day! I was going on a trip with Year 4 to the British Museum.

    Fast forward 1 hour, we’d arrived.

    The museum looked a lot like a Roman construction. First, we went to the Ford centre to put our belongings safely away. Afterwards, we entered a gallery to look at Egyptian artefacts. Then we were given a worksheet and we had to locate specific things around that gallery.

    We had to find hieroglyphics, tombs, artefacts, the Rosetta stone and a red granite lion statue. The highlight of the trip was seeing the mummies especially the Gebelein man.

    It was a lovely day and when I went to sleep that night, I thought to myself, if the British Museum had the mummies, where were the Daddies!

  25. On Monday the 5th of November me and the whole year 4 went on a school trip to the British Museum to answer our big question in history : Why are people so fasinated in Ancient Egiptians ? It was very interesting . The museum was enormous! When we went inside we put our coats and bags in a cuboard so we didnt have to carry anything around. On the first gallery it was cool because we saw real bodies that were mumified by sand . The body was buried with pottery . It was in a baby position (at least that’s what Miss Pitt said). We also saw the rosseta stone. It’s amazing that the rosseta stone is how they discovered they’re language! In my group I was the one that got to draw a piece of a pyramid. We also saw old Egyptian sandals. If I had to be honest they did look mouldy and if you were to touch them they would just crumble to pieces. As we walked passed the sandals we saw some old jewellery. It didnt look old at all, it looked brand new. Not even a speck of sand was showing .Meanwhile we had lunch . Once we had lunch I think we had to head back to school because you know parents these days get cranky if their child is late . So there we have it: our day at the museum.

  26. I didn’t go to the British Museum because I had a really bad cold. However, one month ago I went with Umar and my family to the Science Museum.

    I took a public bus to Ealing Broadway. And we went by train to the Science Museum. Then we went to a café and we had a hot chocolate. It was delicious!

  27. On Monday 5th November 2018 all of Y4 went on a school trip to the British Museum to answer their big question. Why are people so fascinated by the Ancient Egyptians?

    As they got onto the train some of them were feeling nervous and also a bit scared. When they arrived at the British Museum, they all put their bags away and started the great adventure.
    First Y4 went to room 61. In room 61 they found a small picture of Tutankhamun on papyrus. Then they found black, gold and blue coffins in there too. Next, they went to room 62 where they found 3500 year old flip flops that looked just like the ones now!

    Then they went to room 63 and saw of the most famous objects, the Rosetta Stone. On the blackish green Rosetta Stone they found scripts in Hieroglyphics. After that, they went to room 64. It was very cold inside but they still went in and at the end of the room they found a massive wall of stones with pictures of Egyptians engraved on it.

    Y4 continued all the way through to room 65 with their question sheets, answering all of the fact-finding questions along the way.

    Finally, they had lunch and on their way home they talked about recommending the British Museum to all their friends!

  28. On Monday 5th November all of year 4 went to the British museum.We were put in groups of six but we only had five!It was the best day ever!!!To get there we used public transport.First we went on the bus and then the train.The line was the central line. When we got there we put our coats in some lockers downstairs.Our first task was to fill in a work sheet we went to room 61 to 65 .At our first room we had got stuck because we couldn’t find case 11 luckily Eleanor mum found it for us.When we were going through the rooms we saw mummified bodies,coffins,timelines and lots more.After we did the first task we went on to the second .It was based on hieroglyphics the hieroglyphics were ankhs,nemes and loutish and two more.Then it was time for lunch and everyone was starving.And that was our trip I really enjoyed it!

  29. When we went to the British Museum we had some questions to answer about Egyptians. We went around some galleries to some different cases and artefacts. My favourite thing was looking at the Wall of the Pyramid. It was a fun trip and it took very long to get there. We got on the bus to Haven Green and got on a Central Line train to Tottenham Court Road Station, but it was worth it in the end. It was great fun and I suggest we have more trips like it.

  30. One week ago year 4 went on a trip to the British Museum 4j lead year 4 I was surprised.wen everybody got to class evryone put a hi-vist jacket and Evryone went to the loo we set of.

  31. What happened on the school trip.

    My partner was Amirah and she was very kind .My group was Miss Jenkins group with Dilan, Amirah, me Isabelle, Hussein, Lainey and Rawda.

    We saw an unwrapped Mummy and it was disgusting, a bit of a pyramid and some statues of people. We saw five instruments but they were very old ones. On the way to lunch, we saw three men cleaning the roof lights. The men were higher than 70 baby giraffes.

    Then we go back to school and it was a very long trip on the way back but I had an amazing day today I think you would love it there.

  32. At the British Museum!
    At the British Museum 4J saw a lot of things like how mummification worked. How they did the mummification and a lot of other fun things. My favourite part was when we first entered. At the museum, me and my class wrote on work sheets and it was very hard, but we made it easy for ourselfes by working hard. THANK YOU FOR READING!

  33. On Monday 5th November, I went on a school trip to the British Museum .First, what we did was we put are hi-vis jacket on and are red bands on witch has the schools phone number on in case we got lost .We got into are groups and had a safety talk because we were going into central London. The whole of year four walked out of the school gates and most of us had excitement going through us. We got to the bus stop and jumped on the ”E2” .Then we got to Ealing Broadway station and got on the under ground .

    Thirty minutes later, we were at Tottenham court road station . we got to the museum and it was like a castle .We stepped inside and walked to the locker room to the back because is where that was where North Ealing was . Then we had are fruit break and I had a juicy apple.
    I now had energy to explore the museum and learn more about Ancient Egypt .We were given a work sheet to complete .Whilst finding the answers ,I found new artefacts including Ancient Tombs and Mummified cats .
    Downstairs where all the tombs, where I enjoyed finding all the hieroglyphs on them. I felt like I needed more time at the Museum ,so I will ask my family if I can go back to this great experience.
    Thank you Isabel

  35. On Monday the 5th November, we went to the British Museum.

    First we had to put on our hi vis jackets and our wrist bands. After that, we had to go to the toilet so we would not need it on the tube. Then the teachers sorted out our groups. Happily, I was in my mums group because normally when someone in your family helps, you are in their group. The next thing we did was walked leisurely down to the bus stop. Soon enough, the bus arrived and we all hopped on. We had to go on the bus because the walk to the underground train is so far from our school. When we got to the Ealing Broadway Station, we were waiting and waiting. It was so boring! After long, the train arrived. When the train departed, I looked out the window and tried looking for rats. I did not see any however my friend told me that once she saw one! The train station where we had to get off was Tottenham Court Station. You might know it. Do you know it? We took a short walk to the British Museum.

    Eventually we go there! The building was humongous! The angels on the top were so pretty! I might go to the British Museum again only with my mummy and daddy. It was really interesting. We saw the Egyptian part of the museum. We looked at Egyptian life, home, parts of pyramids, the Rosetta Stone, mummification and hieroglyphics. We also enjoyed statues of pharaohs and ancient cats. My favourite part was mummification. We had to do a quiz on the day which was really hard therefore we had to work in teams. The other two classes also did it. They found it tricky as well however it was still fun!

    I was starving by the time we had lunch. I had a yogurt, a ham sandwich, some sausages and a packet of crisps. It was delicious! Once I had finished, we started packing up, ready to go. Soon we left back to the train station (Tottenham Court Road). On the way there, Irfan (a boy in my class) was the team leader for fun. After, the train station to Ealing Broadway, Konoka was our team leader. Irfan did not except it! He was messing around non-stop with his friend Shaan. Just to let you know we all had a safe journey back.

  36. Today I went to the British Museum. We took a bus and the tube to get there. It is a wonderful building full of history.
    We saw mummies, tombs, necklaces and jewellery. I found out that mummies were real. I saw a lotus flower. My favourite thing was seeing an Egyptian god (half lion half human).

  37. We went to the British Museum around two weeks ago . When we arrived at school we put on hi- vis jackets on and red rubber bands around are wrists . Then we got into groups and walked out of school . To get to the Museum we needed to types of transport bus and train . It was a tight fit but we made it to Tottenham court road alright . Now we crossed a few roads until we reached the Museum. we had to put are stuff away in lockers since everyone was so hungry we had to have are fruit break ! I had some delicious pineapple yum . After fruit we went with are group to do a quiz in threes . We saw Ancient Egyptian mummys,tombs , sandals , jewellery and a huge statue of Rameses which weighed about 6 tones we also the Rosetta stone ! After a good look .We had are lunch an after that. We went back to school to go home !

  38. On Monday when I went to the British Museum, my favourite part was seeing the mummification process and seeing the Egyptian tombs. My overall favourite was solving the questions and finding the statues with hieroglyphics written on them.

  39. AT THE BRTISH MUSEUM [Y4 TRIP]
    At the British Museum, where Y4 went, my group saw amazing things that none of us had ever seen. I forgot to tell you that we went by public transport some of us enjoyed the public transport but some of us didn’t. I wonder who didn’t.
    I certainly did enjoy the public transport. The year4 trip was amazing because the teachers did there fun learning session and they made it very enjoyable for the children. #Just saying!

  40. Firstly, we prepared our selves at school by putting on our hi-vis jackets and going to the toilet. Next, we were put in groups so we can be supervised. It took a while to get to the Museum by bus and train.

    We finally made it to the Museum, where we had to put our jackets and lunchboxes into our lockers. After that, we had our fruit break!
    (Which was very tasty) Many moments later, we all got given a sheet that had all different kinds of quizzes and activities to do while we were there!

    Searching around, we saw Ancient Egyptian artefacts. It was super fascinating to see REAL mummies that were mummified!
    We all saw the Kings that looked very appealing to looks at.

    After all of that, we had our lunch which was a tasty sandwich with cookies. Finally it was time to go back to school. What a fun day.

  41. On the day we took the bus from the School I sat next to Rishab. Next, we took the train to Tottenham court road. We played eye-spy with 4P and it was a lot of fun. Finally, we arrived at the Museum. We quickly had our fruit break and Keira’s dad gave us a little worksheet. We had to put ourselves in groups of three, I was in a group with Keira and Dora. We had to look for some hieroglyphics in a certain room. We also had to draw a picture of a statue, half of it was not there so we had to draw what we thought would be at the bottom part, eg. Is it standing or sitting?

    We then had to go to lunch, Keira’s dad could not find out where we were meant to go, not long after we had found out where to eat. I sat next to Dalia and Rawda. I had a jam sandwich with cucumber and carrots and some water, just a simple and quick meal. After that we left and went back to the School. We took the train and then we took the Bus and finally arrived back at School, I enjoyed the trip but found the dead bodies a little creepy. We were a bit late but that normally happens on School trips.

  42. On Monday we went to the British Museum. First, we came into the classroom and put on our high vis jackets then, we all went to the toilet table by table. After that, we were sorted into groups before we headed off to the bus stop to catch the bus. We all got onto the bus and got off at Ealing Broadway station to catch the tube to the British Museum.

    When we got there, we walked to the cloakrooms which smelled really bad as they used to be the old sewers. We put our bags away with our coats and ate our fruit and drank our water. Next we were given a sheet to fill in and we had to find certain things in the museum such as Ramesses II. Our group was stuck with this and then we found it downstairs and it weighed over 700 pounds and was massive.

    We saw lots of coffins and things like that. We kept exploring in our books and the museum until it was time for lunch. I had a ham croissant with tomatoes. It was delicious. We then put on our coats and our bags and slowly headed out of the museum back to the tube. Coming out of the museum, I saw a lot of heiroglyphics on the walls, they looked really hard to learn.

    When we were out of the museum, the tube was pretty much empty, we got it all to ourselves. However on the bus it was really crowded which made us late for home time back at school.

    My favourite part of the day was definitely filling in the sheet with my group.

  43. On the British Museum trip I was in the group with my dad. HOORAY!

    My favourite part was when we saw the part of the pyramid covered with hieroglyphics! When we tried to draw it on our sheet it was so hard because it had so much detail. Even Scarlett, who is really good at drawing, had trouble sketching it accurately!

    We even saw a preserved mummy called the Gabalain man and learned that since he was buried in sand he was preserved better than he would have if he was buried in mud. He had died because of a wound behind his right shoulder. We thought that the wound was quite small and I think from what we read at the museum the Gabalain man died from a knife wound.

    I would definitely go back to show my mum because she doesn’t know a thing about Egypt!

  44. On Monday the 5th of November, it was the day we went to the British Museum to see all about the Egyptians life. First we were put in groups to see which adult we were with.It took us an hour in the public transport to get there.After that ,we left our coat and bags on the lockers and the teachers gave us a quiz to do. It was really difficult as we needed to go up and down looking for statues and hieroglyphics .Also we had to draw pyramids!it was awesome!When one hour was finished, we went to the lunch hall. Finally! We were starving. The only problem was the smell in that room. Stank!After a while , we went back to school.I was tired But I still enjoyed it!
    I will come back with my family another day but much more relaxed!

  45. On Monday 5 November 2018 all of year 4 went to the British Museum to find out about the Ancient Egyptians. We all went to Ealing Broadway on the bus and then on the underground train to Tottenham Court Road. It was thirteen stops (it took ages). When we arrived we had fruit break, put into groups and given our work sheets.
    We dragged our feet up 70 steps to gallery 61-65 where the Ancient Egyptians were. At first my group didn’t understand the worksheet but, then we all flew through it and learnt that if you were dead and your body was left on a beach for more than a thousand years, then the sand could mummify you.
    I recommend to go to the British Museum. My favourite thing was the coffin as it was really interesting to look at. I LOVED it so much!
    Then we had lunch which was really good and the tables were clean for once.
    On the way home the train was really hot so it was good to get back to school.

  46. I loved the year 4 trip ! To be honest I didn’t want to go early that morning ,but as the day went by this amazing museum definitely proved me wrong!
    My top 5 most entertaining artifacts were …
    5. A ROMAN in a sarcophagus !
    4. A rock straight from the pyramids.
    3. A collection of organ boxes (how do you think it smelt in there !?.)
    2. The first ever mummy (preserved in sand)
    1. The Rosetta Stone!!!
    A fact :
    Napoleon went inside The Great Pyramid of Giza, when he came out of the pyramid, he was in shock. When his soldiers asked what happened, he said “if I told you, you wouldn’t believe me .” And to this date nobody knows what happened,now, there’s a Halloween story for you!

    The walk to get to the museum was long, even though it should have taken just 10 minutes (on foot) it seemed like longer because of how busy the area was, and it felt even longer still on the way back home! I think that our legs were tired after walking round a museum for ages, so maybe it was that.

    I thought we were so lucky to go to this museum as a year group so early in the term and it was a great experience.

  47. I went to school then put my hivisability jaket on and a red rubber wristband on and all of us went to the toilet. Then we chose our partners and took the E10 to ealing broadway train station then we got the train to lambeth north and walked 5 minutes to the museum. Then we went inside and saw mummies after we went to see the rosetta stone. During the day we filled in a work sheet while looking at the fasinating objects.Then we went to have lunch next to the lockers. Then we went Tottenham court road to lambeth north and got back to school and finally went home.

  48. A few days ago, we wen to the British Museum! First, we sorted out the groups. Next we all went to the toilet. Then we went outside and waited for the bus, it only took a few minutes. When the bus arrived we all went in the bus, it was terribly noisy. When we got to Ealing Broadway we went inside a tube to go to Tottenham court road. It was really long walking.

    When we arrived to the Museum we took our stuff away and had fruit break. The first thing we done was a quiz sheet. We fond out that mummies when they die they put them in a coffin. Also when we had lunch. For lunch I had a sandwich, juice, banana and a biscuit.
    We saw some dead bodies. Some statues of monkeys and cats are broken. At the end we went back and gave the teachers our rubber bands- yellow hives jacket and went home.

  49. Some time ago, we went on a trip to the British Museum.We learnt lots of interesting facts there.When we got there we put our stuff away ( our bags and coats),had our fruitbreak.After a few minutes we were ready to go,we saw artefacts such as mummies ,tombs and much more.We found out what happend to people who were not pharaohs when they were dead(they got buried in sand,it preserves quite well).We had a big activity sheet to spot different items in the museum .Later we went downstairs ,that is were we saw the Rosseta Stone (which was very crowded),there was also the head of Ramases the second which wieghed about seven tons . Finally, it was lunchtime I had a ham samwiches with fruit and vegtables.My favourite part was seeing the Rosseta Stone.

  50. Wednesday 7th November 2018 – The British Museum

    When we got to school, first we had to put on our high vis jackets over our coats and our bands with the school’s phone number on it . After that, we all got our things together and started to head to the bus stop. Eventually , we got on the bus and immediately started chatting. Soon enough , we were at the tube station getting on the tube and travelling across London. As soon as we got there we had to walk for ten minutes, before we finally reached the gates of the museum. Luckily, the staff let us go through a different gate to the normal crowds, so we all felt like celebrities. Once we got inside, we had fruit break. After that, we finally got to explore the museum. There was a quiz that we had to do, answering questions. We went to a really large room full of giant heads made out of stone and metal. One of them weighed 700 pounds. We filled in the whole quiz booklet, soon enough it was time for lunch.
    I had a ham sandwich in my lunch bag, but my Mum had added a disgusting piece of cheese to the sandwich which made me very ANGRY! I still ate the sandwich though, as I was very hungry. There were other nice things in my lunch to enjoy.
    After lunch, we were all really sad because we had to go home again. The journey home was quite simple, we just did the same route backwards. Overall it was a really great day.

  51. On Monday 5th November 2018, most of year 4 went to the British Museum. First we went on the bus, then the train.
    We had to walk for ages, but when we got there it was awesome!
    There were statues of the war goddess and there was the Rosetta Stone. We could have seen the Sphinx’s beard.
    The best part was the man who still had some hair!

    And that’s it.

  52. On Monday 5th November myself and year 4 went to the British Museum in London. We travelled by public transport. Finally, we got to the Museum after going fourteen stops on the tube.
    We went inside and put our stuff away in a locker. We ate our fruit break by the lockers. I had a banana, yum!
    We went up 9 flights of stairs and finally we got to the Egyptian section and we got to explore rooms 61-65. We were each given a worksheet and split into three groups. I was with Hanna and Mira.
    The first room we went in was room 65, we saw a giant brick from a pyramid. It was covered in Egyptian pictures. In room 63, there was a real mummified human. WOW! I was terrified.
    Finally we went down for lunch. I was starving. I had wraps, water, cucumber and crisps. Tasty!
    I was so sad when lunch ended as it was time to go home. We went back by public transport with our teachers looking after us. We got back to our classroom and took our hi-vis jackets off and rubber bands. We went downstairs and found our parents and went home.
    In conclusion, I recommend taking a trip to the British Museum.

  53. First we all came to school our lunches.We got out of the school in pairs .We gone to the bus stop to E9.Then we got out and headed to the train station.Once we arrived in the town/city we walked alot around the town.When we arrived at the museum it was big but inside we saw alot of Romans and Egypt stuff.We went down to the lockers and lunch to put our stuff away. It was fruit break.We went somewhere were there were loads of coffins and Egyptian stuff our group saw two dead people.We had a test to find things although is was hard but we did it.Lunch was at past one and loads of people were starving like i.We saw loads of hieroglyphics.When we finished that we went straight to lunch.Everyone had a great lunch.After the lunch we got our stuff out and paired into our groups .When we got out of the museum we headed straight to the train and i felted sick there.After the train we got on the bus there were school people and i also felt sick again.Finally when we arrived we were 50 Minutes late and everyone was happy but that was boring museum trip!My favourite pat was lunch.!

  54. On the 5th of November year 4 were going on a school trip to the British Museum.
    First, we put on our life jackets so we didn’t get lost. And table by table we went to the toilet. We took a bus and train to get to the British Museum. When we got to the British Museum we went to the toilet. Next, we found the big rock with full of languages which is called Rosetta Stone. After we went to the Egyptian gallery, we saw lady Sphinx. Then we move to upstairs to see the mummies wrapped in bandages. Most of all Roman mummy was the scariest one for me. There are so many things like jewelleries and games like a chess. But the most interesting was a mummy
    Mummies, which is a bit scary, are wrapped in Bandages.
    Old Egyptian people made mummies to remember the dead. When people died Egyptians made a big hole on hip of the body, they took out all organs except heart then put plaster on the hole to stop it bleeding. And then they start wrapping head through the body to feet. After they put tapes to secure and another layers. On top of it they colour with pinky red food colouring at last.
    The process of making mummy is not only interesting but gross.
    This trip made me very happy to get known a lot about the Ancient Egyptian.

  55. On Monday 5th of November the whole of Y4 went to the British Museum! We arrived at school and put on our hi vis jackets. After that we chose partners and got into groups. I was with my friend Tyler and my group leader was Miss Darhman. This time we travelled by train and bus instead of coach.

    When we finally got there we went downstairs and put our coats and bags in the lockers. Eventually we went back upstairs with our activity sheets. It was Tyler, Nali and I versus the girls. If you didn’t know already the competition was who could finish the activity sheet first.

    The first room we went to was room 63. The best bit about room 63 was finding out what the Egyptians used as fridges, it was a hole in the ground. We unfortunately didn’t have the time to read how because we had so see the other interesting stuff, but it’s still very interesting. The next room we went to was room 64 this room was the most interesting probably because get ready… there was a 3,000 year old left babies foot! It was very large for a baby and next to it was an even older 3,500 year old flip-flop. Now moving onto room 62 this was full with paintings over 3,000 years old. My favourite painting was one with loads of gods, kings and goddesses . Now moving onto room 4, this room was one with again loads of gods, kings and goddesses. As soon as I went in I realised it had changed a lot since I last came when I was 5 years old in 2015. and when I say a lot I mean a lot.

  56. First we went on the bus and then on the train and then we arrived .First we put our things away and we had our fruit break.And then we went on the second floor and we saw lots of mummified people and even a mummified fish.We fond out that there was a sculpture that was about five meters tall.The day went in chronological order and the lunch in there wasn’t a bad place to eat your yummy food.The teachers asked us to find stuff and write interesting facts.My favorite part was when we had our delicious lunch.Then we walked down Tottenham Court road we went on the train then on the bus .Then we arrived at school and we went home.

  57. On Monday we went to British museum first, we put our jackets on then went to the toilet then after that we went to the bus we arrived at Ealing Broadway station second we went to the train an hour later we arrived at the British Museum I got split into teams the teacher gave a sheet paper we had to look at the pictures and write what we saw half an hour later we first ate our fruit in a hall I ate a banana when we finished our fruit we started doing our work I saw mummies people bones, Egyptian gods, I saw a tiger. After that, I ate my lunch on a table. I saw some interesting stuff. I liked that trip.

  58. When Miss Jenkins had finished putting us in our group, we found a partner who was in our group and my partner was Oliver. First, we went on a public bus and then we went on an underground train. We got off the train at Tottenham Court Road and we walked for a bit to get to the British Museum. In the museum we went to a huge gallery where there is an enormous statue of an ancient Pharaoh. It made me think that it must have been made by machines, but it was actually made by people. Then we went upstairs, and we all went into a smaller gallery. Inside there were ancient Egyptian pictures and most of them were patterns of birds and fish. Next we went into a few more smaller galleries which had loads of coffins and some dead bodies!! Then finally it was lunchtime, and everyone was hungry because lunch was one hour late. When we had finished, we went back to school. I really enjoyed the trip!

  59. On Monday 5th November all of Year 4 had a great school trip to the British Museum. It was fascinating and we’re all sad it’s over now. To get there, first we got on the bus and then the train. It was a bit of a trek from the station but it was worthwhile doing because I was amazed by the building of the museum which looked like a roman temple.

    As soon as we got in, we raced down some stairs so we could find lockers for our coats and bags. Then we split ourselves into groups of threes and head upstairs around a big column, which had a few words and roman numerals on it , to rooms 61-65. Our group of six went into 62 first. While we were in that one, and the other rooms up there, we saw amazing artefacts like a mummified child’s left foot and at the same time filled in our worksheets.

    Our group dashed downstairs into one immensely large room with lots of sculptures that had symbols on them – I’m not sure if they were hieroglyphics. We moved down in the room and ground to a halt as we found the Rosetta Stone which has one piece of writing on it in three different languages (including hieroglyphics). It was the object that helped archaeologists understand hieroglyphics.

    After all that, we went back downstairs to eat our lunches, feeling sad that we would have to go soon. When we were finished, we packed up, trundled off to the station and hopped on the train. At the right stop, we got off and jumped on the bus to go home . Finally, our busy day was over.

    So, if you ever have the chance to visit the British Museum, definitely say yes!

  60. A few days ago, we went to the British Museum where we looked at lots of epic,fascinating relics of mummies and Pharaohs (some fake though but still interesting.) We got there by train and a bus. First, we had a look at the ground floor where we could see the ancient hieroglyphics on some cool rocks. After, that we went upstairs to see the real mummies salvaged from either the Valley of the kings or Giza .Then we went back downstairs to have lunch. During lunch, I sat next to my friends Filip and Rishab so I could talk to them. Then we went directly back to the train station so we could go back to school. We reached on time for home-time. My most favourite thing was the pyramid wall( also salvaged). We had a great time there and recommend it to anyone whoever likes history.

  61. Year 4 were lucky we went to the British museum! We saw a lot of Ancient artefacts including hieroglyphics and steps on how to mummify someone. We answered questions while moving room to room. We saw coffins, jewellery and other interesting items. We had a 10-15minutes lunch break. We also had group leaders so we weren’t crowded over one artefact (the group leaders were adults). We used the train to get to Tottenham court road and walked a few minutes to the museum. We walked in pairs and answered questions in threes.

  62. On the 5th of November we were getting ready to get on the bus so we could go to the British Museum. I thought it was worth going there because it sounds so fun and informative.

    We got on the bus and we were heading to Ealing Broadway train station. Afterwards we arrived at Tottenham Court Road. We went to gallery 65 and then I saw a mummy who was preserved but with rotten skin.
    Then we saw a Rosseta stone that had hieroglyphics . Then we saw some decorated pots- they were special of course .Then I saw a man-made small ship that Egyptians used to ride .Some time later, all of us went to the lunch room and ate yummy food .I had my favourite sandwich and some popcorn .We all went back on the tube then on the bus .I told my mum it was great .

  63. On Monday the 5th of November, Y4 went to the British Museum. My favourite part was when we went hunting for the hieroglyphics letters on the Egyptian statues. An interesting thing about this visit is that this Museum is called British but most of the artefacts we saw, were from all around the world.

  64. On Monday 5th November all of year 4 went to the British Museum.Year 4’s big question was “Why are people so fascinated by the Ancient Egyptians?” We went on public transport to get there. When we got there me and my group went down the stairs to put our coats away. Me and the rest of my class went up some windy stairs. My group and I explored rooms 61 – 65. There were posters of how to wrap a mummy which were very interesting and we saw a real wrapped up Mummy inside a cage! On our worksheets we had to answer many questions based on our big question. There were 6 people altogether in my group and Me,Ellie and Amerie were competing against the rest of our group, Zak, Nali and Tyler. Boys v Girls, who are going to win?

    Time for Lunch -we didn’t have lunch unti late. For lunch I had a sandwich with some fruit and some yogurt raisins. Me and my best friends sat together. Afterwards, we walked back up stairs and had a look around room 64. Me and my group got a bit confused with the worksheet but we finally worked it out. I had a look around and there were loads of dazzling, gold jewellery. In a glimpse of an eye, I quickly turned round to see the jewellery and I just about saw it. When we walked passed to go downstairs to a different room we saw men on top of the roof, cleaning it! I looked up and you could see the bottom of there shoes!

    I had a really good time and found out things about the Ancient Egyptians that I did not know, you should definitely go soon!

  65. When I went to school in the morning I was very excited about my trip to the British Museum in London. First of all, we put on our hi-vis jackets and went to the toilet as we were going to go on a long journey. Next, we split into groups and picked our partners, my partner was Luke. When we walked out of the school gate we caught the bus to Ealing Broadway and got on the train from there to Central London. When we reached Central London we entered the British Museum and walked towards the lockers. Then we had our yummy fruit break for a snack. I had a juicy Satsuma for my fruit break.

    Once we finished our snack, we went to Room 61 to 65. It was really very interesting to see real Mummies, pictures of Pharaohs and Hieroglyphics. The Hieroglyphics looked hard to understand because it was made up of lots of little pictures. The Pharaohs looked extremely big and strong. The Mummies looked very interesting because they were covered in white sheets. I was very hungry so we finally had lunch. My lunch was ham and cheese croissant with yogurt and fruit.

    Finally, at the end of the trip, we took the train and then the bus back to school and that was the end of the school trip.

    It was a brilliant trip thank you to the Teachers for taking us.

  66. Freya 4R

    Firstly, we were given a booklet and put in groups. I felt excited that we were going to the Museum because we were going to see the tombs. Then, we got onto the bus and then the train.
    When we got to the museum we had our fruit break. Next, we set off tot Room 4, Egyptians. In the booklet, there was questions we had to answer like can you find this statue and some hieroglyphics that we had to spot on tombs. We saw models of people sailing down the River Nile, what people wore and lots and lots of tombs with hieroglyphics on them. I learnt that the Egyptians did much harder jobs then we do now and lots of these jobs are different then the jobs that you can do now. Like planning a Pharaoh or cooking for the Queen.
    After that, we had our scrumptious lunch. I had a pack of sweetcorn, some nice vegetables along with Jamey doges and sandwiches. After that, we started our journey home. We got on the tube at Tottenham court road and arrived at Ealing Broadway. Next, we got on the bus back to school.
    My favourite part was when we saw this colossal statue of Ramesses the second. It was so big that the museum could only fit the head in the museum. I didn`t like all the pots and pottery because they were plain. I was so happy that we went to the museum to see all the amazing, extraordinary things.

  67. On Monday the 5th of November year 4 went on a trip to the British Museum we were looking at the Ancient Egyptian exhibitions. We have been learning in class about Ancient Egypt in class and answering our big question.

    We saw lots of interesting exhibits my favourites were the
    mummies. Some of mummies were very tall. We got back to school before home time and went home.

    For lunch I had a hummus sandwich, crisps and an an orange.

    I really enjoyed the trip and I recommend going for all ages it’s fun as well as educational. We learnt a lot about Ancient Egypt.

  68. Today my class and I went to the British Museum.
    When we got to the Museum we were given a Quiz and started to explore.We had to find Hieroglyphs on tombs. We went downstairs and saw Ramesses and also the Rosetta Stone . We next had to find a Roman mummy and a fake
    door that Daniel I couldn’t find. We had to look at models and work out what they meant. At the very end of the Quiz we saw lots of colourful tombs without a mummy.

    After all the exploring we went to have lunch. I had a sandwich,crisps and peppers. I was full after that.

    Sadly,it was time to go.We got on the train to go back home.What a wonderful day it was!

  69. On Monday 5th November my class went to the visit the British Museum.

    The British Museum is a museum about history of people and countries all around the world.

    When we came to the museum, first we saw the mummies and x-ray image of the mummy on the computer. They looked scary.

    Then we went to the second floor where we saw how they farmed in Ancient Egypt. We drew a boat which Egyptians used for fishing. There was a wooden model of a boat which we used to draw our pictures. My drawing was in pencil and I drew it in 3D.

    After that, on the third floor we saw a big rock from a pyramid, it was covered in hieroglyphics. We had to answer the question and draw a picture of it. It was great fun drawing hieroglyphics but I didn’t understand what they were meaning.

    Then it was time for lunch and we had to go back down stairs. After lunch it was time to go.

    I liked the most the big rock covered in hieroglyphics because it was interesting to watch and you could see all the different types of symbols.

    I liked the visit very much and I would like to go there again one day.

  70. First of all, we put our high vis jackets on and were separated into our groups for the day. Ten minutes later we all set off to the bus stop. We got a bus very quickly!

    Soon after, we got a train to Tottenham Court Road. When we got there the British Museum was about five minutes away from the train station. When we finally arrived we put all our valuable things into lockers and we went up to galleries 61-65. We saw lots of creepy Egyptian Mummies. I found it really fascinating. We had big booklets we had to complete. Finally at 1:15pm we had our delicious lunch and then went home.

    My favourite part was seeing all the Mummies (we were a bit late home, oops).

  71. Some time ago, we went on a trip to the British Museum.We learnt lots of interesting facts there. When we got there we put our stuff away ( our bags and coats),had our fruit break. After a few minutes, we were ready to go; we saw artifacts such as mummies ,tombs and much more. We found out what happened to people who were not pharaohs when they were dead (they got buried in sand, it preserves quite well). We had a big activity sheet to spot different items in the museum .Later we went downstairs ,that is where we saw the Rosseta Stone (which was very crowded),there was also the head of Ramases the second which weighed about seven tons . Finally, it was lunchtime I had a ham sandwiches with fruit and vegetables. My favourite part was seeing the Rosseta Stone.

  72. On Monday the 5th November, we went to the British Museum.
    First we had to put on our hi vis jackets and our wrist bands. After that, we had to go to the toilet so we would not need it on the tube. Then the teachers sorted out our groups. Happily, I was in my mums group because normally when someone in your family helps, you are in their group. The next thing we did was walked leisurely down to the bus stop. Soon enough, the bus arrived and we all hopped on. We had to go on the bus because the walk to the underground train is so far from our school. When we got to the Ealing Broadway Station, we were waiting and waiting. It was so boring! After long, the train arrived. When the train departed, I looked out the window and tried looking for rats. I did not see any however my friend told me that once she saw one! The train station where we had to get off was Tottenham Court Station. You might know it. Do you know it? We took a short walk to the British Museum.

    Eventually we got there! The building was humongous! The angels on the top were so pretty! I might go to the British Museum again only with my mummy and daddy. It was really interesting. We saw the Egyptian part of the museum. We looked at Egyptian life, home, parts of pyramids, the Rosetta Stone, mummification and hieroglyphics. We also enjoyed statues of pharaohs and ancient cats. My favourite part was mummification. We had to do a quiz on the day which was really hard therefore we had to work in teams. The other two classes also did it. They found it tricky as well however it was still fun!

    I was starving by the time we had lunch. I had a yogurt, a ham sandwich, some sausages and a packet of crisps. It was delicious! Once I had finished, we started packing up, ready to go. Soon we left back to the train station (Tottenham Court Road). On the way there, Irfan (a boy in my class) was the team leader for fun. After, the train station to Ealing Broadway, Konoka was our team leader. Irfan did not except it! Just to let you know we all had a safe journey back.

  73. On Monday 5th November all of Year 4 had a great school trip to the British Museum. It was fascinating and we’re all sad it’s over now. To get there, first we got on the bus and then the train. It was a bit of a trek from the station but it was worthwhile doing because I was amazed by the building of the museum which looked like a roman temple.

    As soon as we got in, we raced down some stairs so we could find lockers for our coats and bags. Then we split ourselves into groups of threes and head upstairs around a big column, which had a few words and roman numerals on it , to rooms 61-65. Our group of six went into 62 first. While we were in that one, and the other rooms up there, we saw amazing artefacts like a mummified child’s left foot and at the same time filled in our worksheets.

    Our group dashed downstairs into one immensely large room with lots of sculptures that had symbols on them – I’m not sure if they were hieroglyphics. We moved down in the room and ground to a halt as we found the Rosetta Stone which has one piece of writing on it in three different languages (including hieroglyphics). It was the object that helped archaeologists understand hieroglyphics.

    After all that, we went back downstairs to eat our lunches, feeling sad that we would have to go soon. When we were finished, we packed up, trundled off to the station and hopped on the train. At the right stop, we got off and jumped on the bus to go home . Finally, our busy day was over.

    So, if you ever have the chance to visit the British Museum, definitely say yes!

    When I went to school in the morning I was very excited about my trip to the British Museum in London. First of all, we put on our hi-vis jackets and went to the toilet as we were going to go on a long journey. Next, we split into groups and picked our partners, my partner was Luke. When we walked out of the school gate we caught the bus to Ealing Broadway and got on the train from there to Central London. When we reached Central London we entered the British Museum and walked towards the lockers. Then we had our yummy fruit break for a snack. I had a juicy Satsuma for my fruit break.

    Once we finished our snack, we went to Room 61 to 65. It was really very interesting to see real Mummies, pictures of Pharaohs and Hieroglyphics. The Hieroglyphics looked hard to understand because it was made up of lots of little pictures. The Pharaohs looked extremely big and strong. The Mummies looked very interesting because they were covered in white sheets. I was very hungry so we finally had lunch. My lunch was ham and cheese croissant with yogurt and fruit.

    Finally, at the end of the trip, we took the train and then the bus back to school and that was the end of the school trip.
    It was a brilliant trip, thank you to the Teachers for taking us.

  75. On Monday 5 November 2018,
    We had a !REALLY! Exciting time at the British Museum. Here, I wrote some notes of what happened.
    First, we went to the bus stop, which is on the left side of the school gate. Then, we trampled along to the underground tube. While we were in the tunnels of the dark and spooky underground train, my dear, old friend, Freddie/Fredrick, thought me how to play ‘doubleo7’ which is quite a nice game. Finally, we got there. It was HUGE. As we got in, we saw two stone figures’. One was Alexandra. The other one was a Roman Lion statue.
    We followed a staff lady, who took us to a room that used to be a sewer. (That’s why it stank so much). We needed to hang our stuff away to keep them safe from getting lost and had our fruit brake as usual. Before long, we were at the stairs, going to the hall of Ancient Egyptians’ (room 62) and we got separated into groups. Each group had a worksheet of paper and questions to fill in. There were over 12 pages!! I think I can remember one from the end; can you find a piece of the Ancient Egyptian Pyramid? As we walked further on, we crossed by an 5500 year old mummy. The thing was… IT STILL HAD A TONGUE!!! Freddy found a computer that had a smart, intelligent view made especially for making your own mummy.
    A while later, we went downstairs for lunch and also got ready to go home. As the other groups were getting ready, we went outside to get fresh air. Eventually, all of the year four groups got back to school, safe and sound.
    The End

  76. Dear Reader, Have you ever been given the chance to go to the British Museum? If you said yes, you are the person that should have your eyes glaring at this piece of writing. Anyway, year 4 went to the glorious, one and only, British Museum! Firstly, we were all sorted into random groups. We then headed to rooms 61-65. We entered 61 first(I think). We were exhausted from the traveling(I was). My favourite artefact was…the Rosetta stone. I couldn’t believe my eyes when I saw it. At first, I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me. Can you imagine somebody carving out all those hyrogliphics just for the Egyptians, ancient, to find out their language? It was miraculous to see the ancient, ragged clothing and jewellery . After lunch and a couple more activities, we had to go back. Except Kalia and Amerie “hibernating”, everything went according to plan. Thank you for reading my summary of this glorious day.
