Mr Egypt was amazing! He really kicked our topic off with a bang. I have never seen my children so engaged, and the breadth of knowledge he had about all things Egypt was just incredible. My teaching assistant has done the Egypt topic for 11 years and said that even she learnt brand new things! The kids are still talking about him 7 weeks on, the day couldn't have been more useful or engaging. Thank you!

"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!! :-)

You brought a wealth of knowledge and shared it in an engaging and accessible way that all the children really responded to. The writing they have produced since about the discovery of Tutankhamen's tomb has been really wonderful and I think that is down to you and the way you captured their interest in the story and your part in it.

We can't wait for you to come back next time we do this topic."

Just wanted to give a huge shout out to Mr Egypt for the fantastic workshop/Egyptian day he delivered to 62 Year 3 children and three "totally in awe" teachers today! What a fabulous experience! An amazing day thoroughly enjoyed by all. Phillip is so knowledgeable and captivating that all the children were enthralled by the day. I cannot recommend him enough. We have dipped into the Ancient Egyptians throughout this school year and thought we'd covered a great deal, but the facts and information we learnt today have far surpassed what we ever would have covered. Thank you Phillip and roll on next year when we will undoubtedly have you back again.

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.

Thank you for such a brilliant day!! Find below my testimonial and also from one of the children.

What a fabulous day we had! Mr Egypt was brilliant in every way. He engaged the children, shared artifacts with the children and had appropriate and capturing activities. What was best about Mr Egypt was his incredible knowledge and genuine love for all things ancient Egypt, the staff wanted to stay and talk for hours!! Thank you from us all!

When he was a little boy he wanted to be an archaeologist, he has now achieved this and shared lots of information with us. My favourite part of the day was when we got to see the artifacts especially the amulets and the statues! - Austin

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.

Helen Roulson teacher St Albyn School Aberdeen

 Dear Mr. Egypt

Thank you for a brilliant day the children are still talking about your visit 4 weeks later

Prior to this February week off, we had parent’s night at Albyn. I have lost count of how many parents sang your praises about how inspired their children were. A few have even booked trips to see the pyramids!

Cloe Davies teacher Walkden School Manchester

Dear Mr. Harris/Mr. Egypt

Words cannot explain the joy the children felt after your visit, they are inspired and wanting us to carry the project further than we planned to do.

Your knowledge, stories and the artefacts were terrific, we have already planned to have you back next year for our new group of children, thanks for an amazing day.

Julie Howe teacher St Peters School Oxford

Thank you for the wonderful day on Thursday.You had so much information to share with the children and your enthusiasm reflected in their engagement with the activities and the knowledge that you shared.Handling the arefacts was a very special part of the day and one that I know, from the feedback from parents and children, was appreciated. It also helped to maintain their focus during the information sections of
the day.


Lydia Stonelake Teacher


Hi Phil,
Thank you very much for the resources and for a really great day on Monday.
The children very much enjoyed it and as you will see when you receive your letters from them, many of them want to become Egyptologist! One of the children can't put our class Egyptian books down and is just drinking in all the facts she can. I have set her the task of writing a story about the 'screaming Mummy'.
Another highlight of the day was the mummification contest which was thoroughly enjoyed by everyone.
The class are buzzing about the Ancient Egyptians and I look for to inviting you back when we visit this topic again.





Sophie Powley Grange Farm Primary School

Thank you so much for such a fantastic day!

Your knowledge of Egypt was wonderful and this was really inspiring to our children. The activities that the children partook in were engaging and the knowledge they gained from doing so was brilliant! All the children and others in our school are still talking about the day now and still have so many questions to ask! We will definitely be booking again next year!
