Our topic this term and after Easter is ‘Pharaohs’. We have been travelling back in time over 5000 years to the dusty realms of ancient Egypt and entering a world of mysteries and curses, mummies and kings. In particular, we have been discovering all about the boy Pharaoh, Tutankhamun and the discovery of his tomb in 1922 by Howard Carter.

Our topic this term is Pharaohs!

Converting 

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 age-old 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 – he’s 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?

Look below to see what's going on in Year 5!

It's November, 1922. In a valley in Egypt the tomb of a long dead pharaoh is about to be discovered. The world watches and waits for news with baited breath. Thirteen-year-old Lilian Kaye is eagerly following the story. One morning the news takes a sinister turn: a man- a famous Egyptologist- disappears. All that remains of him are his feet. Then Lil's grandfather is taken suddenly ill, and when a mysterious package turns up for him from the Egyptologist, Lil starts to believe there is truth to the rumours of a pharaoh's curse.
