Ancient Egypt Topic Week in 3Red

3 Red have really enjoyed finding out all about the Ancient Egyptians this week.  We plotted a timeline to see exactly how long ago they lived, found out all about the River Nile and how important it was to the people who lived near it, discovered the many gods they worshipped and, best of all, explored the gruesome details of the process of mummification!  Today we talked about the pharaoh Tutankhamun and how his tomb was discovered by the archaeologist Howard Carter, acting out the moment when the tomb was discovered by a waterboy.

What has been your favourite part of the week and why?

Can you tell me 5 or more interesting new facts that you have discovered this week about life in Ancient Egypt?imagesCan you remember who this is?  Where would you find this mask?
