The Curse of Thutan

When the tomb was first discovered, there were reports of a message written in ancient hieroglyphics on the outside of the tomb. Translated, the message said, “Death Shall Come on Swift Wings to Him Who Disturbs the Peace of the King.” This gave rise to great speculation in the newspapers and magazines of the time that there was a curse on King Tut’s tomb. A few months after the tomb was open, a British Lord began ill from a mosquito bite. He was there when they opened the tomb. A few months later, he died. Rumor said a mark similar to the mosquito bite was found in the exact same position on King Tut’s cheek.

The ancient Egyptians believed that if their mummy was stolen or destroyed, their spirit would not be able to return to their mummified body at night, and they would disappear forever, no longer able to dwell in their Afterlife. Adding a curse or two to scare robbers into leaving their mummy alone.

 

 Illness and death have been linked to the opening of ancient tombs.  Archaeologists have discovered that there are poisonous plant molds in the tombs in many ancient tombs.

Howard Carter, the man who discovered King Tut’s tomb, lived to be 65. He died of natural causes. He never believed in a curse. Today, archaeologists wear masks when exploring tombs, to protect themselves from these dangerous plant molds.

Summer nearly here

Summer finally arrives

People really hot

All children playing outside

Summer has nearly gone

It starts to get cold

Autumn is finally here

People get colder

Lots of people stay in side

And then winter comes shortly

And then winter comes

It starts to snow really bad

It gets really cold

Children play out in the  snow

The snow has finally stopped

My favourite class

My favourite class is year 4 because we have the best teacher Mr sharkey, Mr sharkey is my favourite because he gives us really fun work and when its near Christmas, we get really fun Christmas activities but sometimes I have to do a maths test but the maths test is fun. At wet play times he lets us play with the speed stacks but he also lets us play with the construction toys and on Friday afternoon playtimes he lets us use the computers.And he makes learning fun.
