On the 15th class 4 attended an Egyptian workshop at the Royal Cornwall Museum in Truro. They learnt about the afterlife and the tomb of Iset-tayef-nakht. They also took part in a role play activity of the ceremony of the feather of true and became archaeologists, discovering some ancient relics.

Class 4 recently visited Gunwen Chapel to learn about the Cornish tradition of the Crying of the Neck Ceremony at Harvest Time.
They all took part and performed the ceremoney in both English and Cornish. This was followed by some Cornish music and saffron and yeast buns!
Using fallen autumn leaves,they created some cute hedgehogs and also planted some cress seeds.
Many thanks to Gunwen chapel for having us!
