Mrs Parry reminded the children about the use of rhetorical questions before presenting them with a scenario of a school trip, to the Valley of the Kings in Egypt (unfortunately we can’t really go!).
The children watched the beginning of a short film, where an explorer finds his way to a tomb with treasure ……. and mummies!
The children wrote individual diary recounts with Egyptian music in the background for atmosphere!
