YEAR Two pupils at Frodsham Manor House Primary School have been learning the story of Moses in the Bulrushes.
They had to describe a picture to another pupil, who could not see the picture but had to draw it from what they heard.
Then they learned about “big sisters” and the story of how Miriam watched over her baby brother, Moses, when their mother concealed him when the Pharaoh of Egypt ordered that all male Hewbrew children be drowned at birth.
She placed him in a wicker basket and hid him among the bulrushes that grew along the side of the Nile and Miriam kept watch from nearby to ensure he was safe.
When the Pharaoh’s daughter found Moses and decided to adopt him, Miriam persuaded her to employ a Hewbrew “nanny” – so ensuring that the boy was brought up by his own mother.
