Easter Holidaysร‚ย 2011

Hi everyone.

Just a reminder about the two pieces of homework that you have.

1. In celebration of the royal wedding between Prince William and Kate Middleton, we are all getting the day off (hooray!).

So, the school would like to know, what are you doing on that day?

Do you have any special plans? Will you be celebrating with family and friends? Are you having a street party? Are you just treating it like a normal day and going to the park? It doesn’t matter what you are doing, we just want to know. There is no right or wrong answer!

Please leave your comments on the blog.

I’m going to Leeds on that day to watch my favourite rugby team, Castleford Tigers, play (and hopefully win).

I think I will also watch the wedding on TV as it is a hugely historic occasion.

2. Your second piece of homework (cruel I know) is to research the Vikings. I would like you to find out some information about the Vikings and bring it to school. You could:

Make a poster

Draw a picture for a fact

Make a booklet

Write down something that you have found out .

Please don’t just copy something from the internet. I want you to put it in your own words. If you write one sentece or one hundred sentences, I don’t mind, as long as it is your own!

I’m really looking forward to our Viking topic. It is always very interesting and I’m sure that you will all enjoy it!

Have a super-duper holiday!

    totancarmun became pharoh when he was 9 and died when he was 18

  25.   oscaron 26 Oct 2010 at 11:51 am     25

    The reason that Tutankhamun is so well known today is that his tomb, containing fabulous treasures, was found early this century (1922) by British archaeologists Howard Carter and Lord Carnarvon.
    Tutankhamun was probably born at Akhetaten which was the capital city of Egypt. He was born in about the year 1346 BC.
    Howard Carter was born in 1874 in Norfolk, England. His father named Samuel Carter was an artist who taught Howard Carter the fundamentals of drawing and painting.Several finds made in the Valley of the Kings over the years led Howard Carter to believe that the king was still somewhere in the Valley.

    Carter believed he found clues to Tutankhamun in the discoveries made by Theodore Davis. Davis had found a cup and other fragments bearing the name of Tutankhamen and his queen
