Writing: 

You will be completing another diary entry. Today you will take on the character of an Embalmer during the Ancient Egyptian times. What might their day look like? What events may happen? What might they feel or see? 

I am looking for 3-5 days worth of diary entries. Each day should be given a date that fits with the time period, for example 1260 BCE. 

 

After you have written your entry complete the following steps.

1) Check your work with the success criteria below.

2) There is room for someone at home to check it over as well. 

3) I would also like you to write down what you think you did well and how you could improve your writing next time. 

 

Check that you have met each of the points on the success criteria after you have written your rough draft. You can then complete a good copy. Please send finished product to y5@sfdprimary.co.uk by Monday!
