To conclude their Literacy topic, Year 3 children met with the Year 4s to discuss the question ‘Was Tutankhamun Killed?’ Year 3 spent many lessons learning about the young pharaoh and discussing his mysterious death. They planned, drafted and then wrote an explanation text to detail their opinion on the matter. After sharing their texts with the Year 4s, children from both classes voted and it was decided 21 against 8 that Yes, Tutakhamun was killed! Although scientific evidence does not prove or disprove this theory, many children believe either Ay, the pharaoh’s adviser, or Horemheb, the leader of the Egyptian army, could have murdered the young king. The Year 3 students really appreciated the positive feedback from their older colleagues on their texts. Great peer work!
