Pharaoh Tutankhamun wants to know why your class has stopped working. His pyramid needs to be finished this week and there’s still a lot more work to do.
This day of exploration can include:
Pyramid Maths Challenge
Preparing a human body
‘Face the Pharaoh’
Team Pyramid Geography Lesson
Physical Endurance Pyramid Build
Hieroglyph Spelling Test
These lead up to our big event. Use the knowledge from the day to build a tomb within the pyramid for Tutankhamun himself. It must be good enough to appease the most critical judges: Anubis and Osiris.
The Ancient Egyptians have always been a popular topic in primary schools. It covers a fascinating and important part of human history and allows us to explore many different aspects of ancient history. Religion, sacrifice and slavery are all covered in this programme in an exciting way that will excite your class for the whole term.
Building the tomb of Tutankhamun encourages the children to work together and use their knowledge to build an impressive monument. They are then encouraged to pitch their design to the Pharaoh allowing them to demonstrate persuasive language skills, 3D shape manipulation and of course, their newfound knowledge of the Ancient Egyptians.
