What was life like in Ancient Egypt?

Year 3 are currently learning about Ancient Egypt in our History, Art and English lessons. We wrote diary entries from Leila, the daughter of a sesh, who befriends a magical goddess cat called Vera (Bastet). In Art, we have been drawing a symmetrical picture of Tutankhamun's death mask. In History, we have been comparing life to Ancient Britain 5000 years ago, and considering why the Nile was known as a 'gift' to the ancient people living there. This week, we discovered the secret artefacts hidden in Tutankhamun's tomb with a archaeological scramble with torches through the tomb opening, into the antechamber and then into the tomb proper itself (i.e. under classroom tables and blankets!). Please ask our mini Howard Carters what they found!
