Ancient Egyptian Assembly or Class Play<br />
Cast size: around 30 - easily adaptable up or down.<br />
Duration: around 15 minutes.<br />
Sun, sand and palm trees – sounds like the perfect holiday! But be careful who you take as your travelling companions! Your Dad might be well ‘chilled out’ – but watch out for that Mummy! A first aid kit has its uses – but is all that bandaging really necessary? And if you thought our system of justice was ‘iffy’ – imagine letting a feather decide your fate! Join us on a Saharan shuffle – through the dunes and beyond!<br />
(Also available set of 5 guided reading play scripts plus quizzes - Introduction, Farmer's Year, Daily Life incl. Pyramids, The After-Life and The Gods - See Guided Reading Play Scripts Section)<br />
Sample Text <br />
Mummy (tutting loudly).<br />
Can’t you do better than that? Listening to your jokes I could just die of boredom! (pauses) Oh, but I already have! …Anyway, here’s a joke for the audience. Knock! Knock!<br />
Who’s there?<br />
Toot who?<br />
Toot an come in – (pronounced Tut an khamun). That’s me, in case you were wondering. Oh, it’s good to get out of that coffin, and stretch my legs. Not (turning to Anubis) that I’m complaining about my wrapping – job well done. <br />

This lesson involves pupils working in groups to produce an election campaign for one of the claimants to the throne in 1066. (Before the Battle of Hastings lesson) The PowerPoint goes through the claimants to the throne in 1066 which allows students to work in groups for the election campaign task. <br />
The CV worksheet provides students with extra information to support with the group task. The election task work sheet gives clear instructions alongside extension tasks to enable students to complete high quality group work.
