Awful Egyptian Assembly. (Children seated around in a circle as always.) Narrator 1: Welcome to Year ____’s assembly. Narrator 2: We have been looking at The Ancient Egyptians. Narrator 3: The Ancient Egyptians lived many thousands of years ago. Narrator 1: Round about the time (teacher’s name) was born. Narrator 2: The Ancient Egyptians are famous for many things. Narrator 3: Probably the most famous being the pyramids. Narrator 1: A pyramid was a huge tomb for the Kings of Egypt that, surprisingly, was shaped like a pyramid. Narrator 2: The king of the Egyptians was called the Pharoah and he would order his pyramid as soon as he became king. (Pharoah and architect stand up. Pharoah goes over to the architect) 1

Pharoah: So how is my pyramid going? Arch: Oh fine, fine. We’ve got about 400 or so people building it at the moment so it shouldn’t be too long. Pharoah: Brilliant. So how long do you think it’s going to take? Arch: (thinks for 3 seconds.) About 20 years. Pharoah: 20 years!!! You’re kidding. Arch: No, you’re probably right. We’re doing really well so more like 19. Pharoah: 19 years! But I’ve asked my friends round for a birthday party this weekend. Arch: Well, they’ll have to wait a bit. Might be an idea to show them round the sights of Egypt while you’re waiting. Pharoah: For 19 years! Arch: Walk very slowly. 2

Narrator 3: Before a pharaoh was put into his pyramid, of course, he had to be dead. Narrator 1: The Egyptians had a special way of looking after their dead. They mummified them. Narrator 2: This was a way of preserving the body so it stayed lifelike. Narrator 3: They embalmed the body and wrapped them in strips of linen. Narrator 1: This is how they did it. (Rahotep and his assistant come forward. Assistant is holding a poker. The dead body lies on a table in the middle.) Rahotep: Hello my name is Rahotep and my assistant and I are going to show you how to mummify a body. (Rahotep walks over to the body.) The first thing you do is go and check that the body is dead. (Leans over and speaks to the dead body.) Are you dead? Dead Body: Yes Rahotep: Great. Let’s get started then. Rule no. 1; Wash the body with scented palm wine and then wash it off with water from the Nile. 3

Narrator 1: The Nile is the river that runs through the whole of Egypt and was very important to the Egyptians. Narrator 2: It was so important that they treated the river Nile as a living thing. (As the narrators have been saying this, the embalmers have been miming the washing of the body.) Rahotep: Now your body is ready for the next bit. We have to get all the organs out of the body. We need them later so don’t throw them away. One organ we need to get out is the brain. Assistant: Do we cut it out?
