Keyworth Primary
& Nursery School

New Topic!

Our new topic for this half term is Pharaohs! 

During this half-term, we will be learning first-hand about the gruesome, yet fascinating, process of mummification. We’ll also consider whether it was right to open Tutankhamun’s tomb, or whether it should have been left as it was. Our work will inspire us to write some exciting Egyptian mystery stories and non-fiction books and the internet will provide us with information to make fact files. We’ll also consider whether it was right to open Tutankhamun’s tomb, or whether it should have been left as it was.

Studying historical sources will help us learn more about the Pharaohs, the Egyptian gods and ancient religious beliefs. We’ll find out about the food that was eaten at the time, create tombs from clay and use recycled materials to build model canopic jars. 

 

Our class text for this half term will be the fantastic Secrets of a Sun King by Emma Carroll, and you are more than welcome to bring in your own copy to read along in class. 

 

Looking forward to another exciting half term with Turtle Class!
