We started the week back by looking at a version of a creation story from Ancient Egypt, Ra, the All Powerful! We looked at some others during our reading sessions including a story from Hinduism, Christianity and a science version.
The story about Ra led us to thinking about the ancient Egyptian empire again and all the aspects that would go into keeping it going! There was quite a list when we’d finished...I gave up trying to link them all.
We also looked at a biography of Howard Carter, the archaeologist credited with finding the tomb of Tutankhamen. He keeps cropping up in our class reader by Emma Carroll. We need to look at more facts about King Narmer as we have finally started to think about our historical games based around the time of his life.
