  • A fantastic resource that can be used a starting point for my planning. The only little problem is the decoding sheet that is supposed to say "valley of the kings" in hieroglyphs actually says "balley".

    • Hi kfisher92,

      Thank you for your comment on the Twinkl website.

      It seems that the hieroglyph for 'v' should actually be the same as the one for 'f'. I will pass this on to our resource team for correction straight away and also ask for a note to be put on the hieroglyph prompt sheet to alert children to look out for this when reading using the symbols.

      I hope you have a lovely day! : )

      Thank you for spotting this mistake! Our lovely teacher and design teams have solved the issue and have emailed the corrected resource to you! It will also be updated on the website very soon - I hope you find it useful!
