Our Year 4 recently had the spectacular Hobgoblin Theatre Company in to perform ‘The Curse of the Mummy.’ The play was linked with their current History topic of The Egyptians. The fun interactive play was full of audience participation and set in the Museum of Egyptology, where the exhibit of the Amulet of Tutankhamun was set to be opened with disastrous consequences!
After the performance, all the children were immersed in a drama workshop which explored the main themes (focusing on pyramids, mummification, the Underworld and the discovery of Tutankhamun’s tomb). It was a wonderful rich learning experience.
