The opening of Tutankhamun’s tomb

Yesterday, we went on an expedition to uncover the secrets inside Tutankhamun’s tomb, one of the most famous Pharaohs to have ruled in Ancient Egypt. We had to crawl through the narrow passageways and search for ancient artefacts that would help us build a clear picture of what his tomb was really like. Due to the poisonous, harmful gasses, we could only spend 20 seconds inside at a time and had to sketch what we could see. We then reported our findings back to our team of historians and compared our drawings to create a complete picture. After that, we found out what Howard Carter’s, the first man to enter the tomb for 3000 years, experience was like. We have come up with a list of questions that we would like to research next week as a result of our expedition.

This week we also received a letter from Q, asking for our help with James Bond’s recent dilemma. When chasing baddies, he keeps falling over and so the secret service want our help in finding out what surfaces James Bond should be avoiding. We decided to set up an experiment to test the force needed to a pull a shoe across different surfaces. We looked at newton meters to see how we could measure the pulling force. Next week, we will put different surfaces to the test such and record our findings. To ensure our test is fair we decided that we needed to keep the shoe the same but whose shoe will we use?

Please continue to work on your 500 word story entry – these are due in on Wednesday 12th February.

Have a lovely, long weekend!
