Welcome back and a Happy New Year!
We are very excited for a fun filled term.
This term our new topic is called 'Pharaohs'.
"Let’s travel back 5000 years, to the dusty realms of ancient Egypt. Cruise along the Nile, entering a world of mysteries and curses, mummies and kings. Find out about life on the river’s fertile banks, discovering Egypt and its fascinating culture. Unravel the secrets of ancient tombs, using historical sources and ancient artefacts. Find out about powerful pharaohs and grandiose gods. Make yourself a nemes and you’ll really look the part. Become an apprentice and work for Ramose, the chief embalmer at the Beautiful House. Help him prepare a body for its journey into the afterlife. Now open the doorway to ancient Egypt. Who knows what treasures you will find?"
We will be looking to discover lots of fascinating facts about the famous explorer, Howard Carter, and famous Pharaohs such as Tutankhamun, as well as exploring the Ancient Egyptian belief in the after life and mummification.
