Thursday 23rd. April

It's Thoughtful Thursday everyone! Make sure you do something thoughtful and kind for someone else today. I'm going to make Mr. Tilsley his favourite tea - homemade meat and potato pie!




Another quick read today about Howard Carter, the archaeologist who discovered the tomb of Tutankhamun. Answers are attached to the document.


Follow the link for your White Rose Maths lesson.


We are continuing to use the story of 'The Egyptian Cinderella' today so read it again from the power point. Then I want you to think about how this story is similar to the traditional fairy tale version of Cinderella. Before you begin, it might be a good idea to retell the main events in the traditional Cinderella story to someone.


In the story 'The Egyptian Cinderella', a god appears as a bird - a falcon that swoops away with Rhodopis' slipper. Ancient Egyptian gods were very different to our modern day ideas of a god. For a start the ancient Egyptians believed in many gods, not just one, and most of their gods took animal forms. Take a look at the power point below and the film clips that tell you about the main ancient Egyptian gods and goddesses (female gods). Then there is a god profile worksheet where you can invent a new Egyptian god or use one of the gods you have learned about today. Which is your favourite god or goddess? Why?

When you've done all that, take a break and walk like an Egyptian!!! cheeky
