This term we will be travelling back 5000 years to Ancient Egypt entering a world of mysteries and mummies. We will be visiting the British Museum to explore the Ancient Egypt exhibits and writing recounts of our discoveries. As part of our research we will be finding out about Howard Carter’s famous discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb and writing reports about the events. As well as reading stories based on Ancient Egypt, we will also be developing our own story writing skills to plan and create interesting Egyptian stories.
We will also be finding out about hieroglyphics and the process of mummification. We will also be using our knowledge of Egyptian artefacts to create our own Egyptian art.
