Class 3's Awesome Ancient Egyptian Assembly!
"That was the best assembly I've ever seen!" - a Bosbury grandparent
Class 3 absolutely enthralled everyone on Friday morning with a Pharaoh-sized (groan!) assembly based on the fascinating topic of Ancient Egypt.
Making their entrance in fitting style to The Bangles' Walk Like an Egyptian, the packed-out audience of pupils, staff, parents, grandparents and younger siblings were treated to a magnificent display of authentic costumes, superb signing and acting, amazing use of green-screening and even a Horrible Histories quiz at the end as everyone bowed down to the Class 3 Pharaoh!
The audience were treated to a lovely demonstration of the gruesome rituals of mummification and embalming (don't worry, the organs of the young man being used as a test subject were returned to him soon afterwards)...
... before it was then time for two teams consisting of two young ladies from Year 6 and two mums to race against both each other and the clock as they grabbed their toilet rol... sorry, mummified bandages to wrap up both Mrs. Christopherson and Mr. Ponter.
Despite Mr. Ponter's extra addition of some cool mummy sunglasses, the more comprehensive all-over bandaging achieved by Mrs. C's team meant that Class 3's TA was eventually named the winner by the time the two minutes were up.
The children then told a fantastic story of the Egyptian gods using some very impressive-looking pre-recorded acting, before the audience got most of the true or false questions posed by the Class 3 explorers at the end correct. Well, three out of four isn't bad!
Well done Class 3 on such a terrific assembly which really did have something for everyone, and thank you also to Mrs. Walker, Mrs. Turnbull, Mrs. Christopherson and Miss Felles for all of their hard work with the children in putting such a superb performance together.
Goodness me, the bar has now been well and truly raised for the upcoming Key Stage 1 and Class 5 assemblies coming up soon...!
