St Joseph the Worker

Catholic Primary School

Year 5

We have had an exciting start to the term with our topic on Ancient Egypt. Some brilliant research has been carried out on Egyptian gods, which has been presented in writing, drawing and computerised fact files. The Egyptian theme continues in Literacy, through our study of 'Secrets of a Sun King' by Emma Carroll, a mysterious novel set in 1922, based on Howard Carter's discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun. Was it cursed? The mystery continues: We have learned how and why the Ancient Egyptians mummified their dead and look forward to seeing some mummies close up during our visit to the British Museum in November.
