Walk like an Egyptian!

Children in Year 4 have been learning about the fascinating search for the tomb of Tutankhamun. The young king of Egypt’s mummified remains and priceless possessions were found in remarkable condition 3000 years after his death. A determined archaeologist discovered the tomb in 1922, after a lengthy and problematic search. His name was Howard Carter.

The children were lucky enough to ‘meet’ him and learn of his captivating discovery. Following this, children wrote a letter in role as Carter reporting his find to his parents. They also planned and took part in a balanced argument discussing whether the ancient tomb should have been disturbed.
