YEAR 3 EXPEDITION TO THE TOMB OF TUTANKHAMUN

19 February 2014

Discoveries were made in Year 3 this week as our ‘archaeologists’ found the tomb of Tutankhamun!

Children came to school dressed as archaeologists ready for an adventure. Their expedition started with them selecting the correct tools for the task – brushes, torches, magnifying glasses, trowels - before entering into the lost tomb to witness Tutankhamun’s sarcophagus, hieroglyphics, amulets, canopic jars, jewellery, bandages, papyrus scrolls and lots more. On leaving the tomb, one child commented, “I thought we were in Ancient Egypt!”

This exciting experience has sparked the children’s imagination and will support them in their Literacy based activities alongside giving them an insight into what it may have been like for Howard Carter in 1922 when he discovered the tomb.

The children have really engaged in this term’s topic on Ancient Egypt. This was shown when they were given a homework activity of researching and presenting information on a subject within the topic which interested them. An impressive set of projects arrived in school including pyramids (some made from sugar cubes), a life size sarcophagus, an Ancient Egyptian set of clothes, a model of a Khufu boat and many more well prepared and informative pieces of work.


Who knows, we may have inspired some archaeologists of the future!
