Third Class are learning about Tutankhamun in school.
He was nicknamed the ‘Boy King’.
He became Pharoah of Egypt when he was eight or nine.
We found these websites helpful when we were learning about him.
These pages from Woodlands – Junior School, Kent
are detailed and interesting. There are lots of pictures.
We enjoyed writing our names in hieroglyphics here.
You can see a virtual tour of Tutankhamun’s tomb
on either of these sites:
The first one is photographic and the second is an animations.
Which one do you prefer?
Finally there is a Pyramid Challenge from BBC Schools
for more senior students.
