Mummy Mia!

Maths and Numeracy-based musical comedy

Diana trying to discover where her uncle is

“My Uncle Herbert’s gone and got himself trapped inside the pyramid of King Rameses in Egypt. Mr Cooper (who calls himself a magician) tells me that the pyramid is guarded by the statue of Cleopatra and that her evil mummified sister, Mia, is inside with Uncle. Apparently, to get inside I need to crack some kind of hieroglyphic mathematical code but that’s the least of my problems. First, I need to find the wretched place and I’m not sure whether or not I can trust the kiwi tour guide Ozzy on his filthy camel! And why does everyone keep telling me to ‘follow the hawk’s direction’?………”

The audience must help solve the mathematical problems to help Diana save her uncle.

“Excellent as always. The children (and staff) enjoyed it immensely. (The actors) were terrific. Thanks”

Mr Phil Morgan-John, Greatstone Primary School

Numbers, digits, odd & even, addition, partitioning, angles, pictograms, mathematical sums, measurements, scales

  • The children learn numbers are composed of digits and how they are constructed. Odd and Even Numbers are introduced and explained
  • Addition by partitioning is explained
  • Simple angles are demonstrated (e.g. the right angle) and rotation terms are explained without reference to degrees
  • How to take certain types of measurements is included and the children have to read a simple scale
  • Pictograms are included and the children have to do a simple mathematical sum using them
  • How to take certain types of measurements is included and the children have to read a simple scale

Science Content Upper KS2

Mr Cooper the snake charmer

Degrees, rotations, compass points, graphs, axes, negative numbers, problem solving

  • As KS1 but in greater detail…
  • Degrees are introduced with regard to rotations and some compass points
  • The children are shown how a graph is constructed using x and y axes and they have to identify certain co-ordinates. A number line is constructed and a game is played involving negative numbers
  • Problem Solving and the handling of data is integral to the plot
