The ancient Egyptians had a culture full of mystery and wonder. They have given us the pyramids and the tombs, stories and a fascinating collection of rites, rituals and artefacts. If you are looking for a different way to help your class or group learn about it all then this is it. Whether you are just starting the topic, half way through or even looking for a way to finish it off this full day workshop is a creative way to do it.
During the course of one day we will work with your class to look at the Egyptians gods, their myths and legends, the building of the pyramids and the slaves as well as their most famous Pharaohs and their death rites and tombs. Each topic will include a short discussion followed by practical work using a variety of different dramatic techniques to help your class or group explore the themes and their ideas. These sections of practical work then fit into a scripted performance which can be shown to another class or parents at the end of the day, complete with some basic costume, props and music.
This is an intensive one day work shop (for example from 9.10am until 3pm) for up to 30 children and will require the use of the school hall for the duration of the day, excluding the lunch brake. The class teacher and or other suitable adults will need to be present through out the day to help in the organisation of the group through out the workshop.
If you wish the workshop can also be done in a half day format. This half day workshop is a surface look at their fascinating culture.
