Stepping into the Tombs
Stepping into the tombs with Tutankhamun!
To kick start our learning about Ancient Egypt, Year 4 investigated the mysterious circumstances surrounding the death of Egypt's youngest Pharaoh. Working in groups, children became either archaeologists, medical examiners, the infamous Howard Carter and architects. Then they spent the afternoon examining various clues from x-rays to snapshots of hidden treasurers found in King Tut's tomb. Children developed their own theories about his demise including foul play, unresolved injuries, chariot accidents etc. As you can see their mind were whirring and lots of enjoyment and learning took place.
