WALT: Write a job advertisement

Most people in Ancient Egypt were farmers.  Watch this clip Working life in Ancient Egypt - KS2 History - BBC Bitesize and read about ‘a day in the life of a farmer’ (you may remember this site and information from your topic work recently) Egypt's Golden Empire . Special Features . A Day in the Life . Farmer | PBS.  Think about the typical jobs that a farmer would carry out during harvest (make short notes if this helps you with the task below.)

Writing task: Imagine that you are a farmer.  This year there is far too much work on the farm for you alone.  You need help! Write a job advert for a trainee Ancient Egyptian farmer.

Your advert needs to explain the jobs that your trainee will need to do and the skills they need to be successful.

Remember you want to recruit/find the best possible person for the job.

Watch the video clip of Mrs Dobson to help you.
