Secrets of the Sarcophagus
Synopsis: Children carry out an in-depth study of Ancient Egyptian mummification and the burial ritual. They focus on Howard Carter, the archaeologist, and the discovery of Tutankhamun. They use this understanding to write an explanation text and a first-person account of the discovery. The children will also write a winter poem using figurative language.
In History, children sift and weigh evidence to support/refute historical claims.
In D&T, children create an educational product (sarcophagus) focusing on functionality and aesthetics.
