We learned what the ancient Egyptian’s believed about life after death this week, and the process of mummification to keep the “ba” connected and safe. This was accompanied by an in-depth look into the tombs of wealthy ancient Egyptian’s, such as Pharaohs, and revisiting Howard Carter and his discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb.
We continued our work in place value for maths, comparing numbers up to 1000 and looking at multiples of 50.
