Year 3 Tomb Raiders

As part of our Ancient Egyptian topic, Year 3  had lots of fun learning about the archaeologist Howard Cater and what he discovered in Tutankhamun’s tomb.

Working in teams,  each archaeologist took turns to explore the tomb and observe the many wondrous artefacts.  After taking in as much detail as possible,  in a limited time due to the build up of poisonous gasses over thousands of years,  they described their finds to their team members and then sketched these in their log books.

Following this, we took a virtual tour of a Tutankhamun exhibition to see the artefacts in real life.
