Sheffield Museums

Sheffield Museums have acknowledged that many of Sheffield’s historic collections are rooted in British colonial history and invited True Talk Africa CIC to study and offer advice for their school offer for Ancient Egypt. 

Schools can now book onto 'Ancient Egypt: A Mummy's Story' for Key Stage 2 which fits within Geography, environment, History and ICT curriculum areas.

As part of the experience, children will consider how colonialism equipped museums with the knowledge of lives in Ancient Egypt and think about how this makes them feel. This workshop uses enquiry-based learning to encourage children to connect and empathise with Djedma'atiuesankh through a combination of research, discussion and structured debate.
