Testimonials

Our excitement filled Year 3&4 welcomed a special visitor, Mr. Egypt, from Luxor, this week. With the knowledge to many tombs in the Valley of the Kings, Mr. Egypt shared the wonders of ancient Egypt with 100 eager children. The entire day was a whirlwind of learning as the children explored real artifacts, some thousands of years old, transporting them to a world of pharaohs and pyramids. Fascinating stories of Tutankhamun, Cleopatra, and Howard Carter captured their imaginations. The mysterious curse surrounding Carter's great discovery added an extra thrill to their learning. Fun activities let the children experience ancient Egyptian customs firsthand. They wrapped themselves in linen bandages (toilet roll), mimicking mummification,

What can I say? The Egyptian day was stunning! Phil was captivating, mesmerising and amazing with the children. They were hooked. Little did I know, when I booked Phil, how the day would be. The knowledge and information was first hand from Egypt and fascinating. The activities were great too! It is safe to say that this was the best day of my teaching career and whilst this sounds like a big statement, it is very true. The children benefited so much and we shall definitely be booking again. As a person, the children adored him. His humour was brilliant and it was a brilliant day! Thank you!

Emma Nicols, Barnston Primary School Wirral

Mr Egypt provided an engaging and informative day when he came to Parsonage Farm. All the children and staff involved found the information fascinating and did not want the day to end. Mr Egypt's first hand knowledge was great and this really got the children excited. The artefacts that we were shown and allowed to look at and touch really made the day hands on and exciting. We hope to have Mr Egypt back next year to share more interesting stories and facts with us all about Ancient Egypt. Thank you again.

Charlotte Bessent, Parsonage Farm Havering School

"Thank you so much for coming into our school and sharing your wonderful, hands on experience of Ancient Egypt with us. It was an absolutely fantastic day and had all the children (and teachers) on the edge of our seats listening to your wonderful stories and engaging workshops. The fact that you have been involved in so many excavations and brought real artifacts with you that you have been involved with discovering meant so much to the children. They have not stopped talking about you - you really did make quite an impression. As teachers we all went into the day thinking we knew quite a lot about Ancient Egypt ourselves, having all taught it before. We were wrong!! :-)

Melanie Smith, Local School

Hi MR EGYPT Thank you so much for coming in last week it's was a brilliant day. The children were engaged all day and loved hearing all the facts from someone who had experienced it first hand with wonderful artefacts and so much more. That have been talking about it for days and the feedback from parents has been excellent they have enjoyed hearing all about it from the children. We will definitely remember to book you for next year.
