Discovering Tutankhamun

Year 4 have had a great start to the new term.

In Maths, we learnt how to use practical equipment to divide 2-digit numbers and looked at this in a variety of contexts. In English, we planned and started writing our Egyptian adventure stories which featured frightening mummies and maze-like passageways which led to mysterious (and sometimes dangerous!) tombs.

In our Creative Curriculum, we also completed our learning about Tutankhamun. 


We used Andy Warhol's art as inspiration to create similar-style drawings of Tutankhamun's mask.

We've also been fascinated by old black and white footage and photographs of the discovery of Tutankhamun's tomb. We read some extracts from Howard Carter's diary and were amazed by his sketches of the treasures he found hidden there. We then had a go at writing our own diary entries from Howard Carter's point of view.
