Glint of Gold Year 3 Play

In June, Year 3 peformed their play to parents and carers and other classes.

Set in November 1922, the story begins with Howard Carter's famous discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun. Carter enters the tomb and is astounded by the treasures buried for over 3,000 years. The visitors discover the story of this little known king through the writing on the walls of the tomb called hieroglyphs and when they come to life they learn all about Ancient Egypt.

Y3 Glint of Gold


Tutankhamun, who had rested in peace for thousands of years, is now awakened and needs to learn part of the "Book of the Dead" before he can join his father (The god Osiris) among the stars.

The play was a great success and enjoyed by all.
