If you are learning about Ancient Greece with your pupils, then a drama workshop can really bring the topic to life – allowing children to explore the way people lived, the challenges they faced and how life for Ancient Greek people differed from life today.
If you book an Ancient Greeks drama workshop, your pupils will learn about the following areas of the curriculum:
• How people lived in Ancient Greece including farming, the weather, the challenges they faced
• The City States including how they were ruled and what each was famous for
• Myths including Narcissus, Theseus & The Minotaur, Medusa and Heracles
• The Gods and Goddesses
• The first Olympics, how people travelled to it, what events took place and how the Olympics evolved
We use a wide range of drama techniques to engage children in the topic, allowing everyone to access the session and for a huge amount of learning to take place in a short time.
Our drama days can be used at any stage of curriculum delivery - early in the term for a wow starter, in the middle of a topic to bring it to life and embed learning, or at the end of the topic for that ultimate sticky knowledge boost, helping children make memories and retain the information for years to come.
For one class of children - a Learn and Perform Day.
For two or more classes - an Explore Day.
A Learn and Perform Day gives 1 class of pupils the opportunity to create a performance all about this topic in just 1 day - which they present at the end of the school day to an invited audience.
An Explore Day gives up to 4 classes of pupils the chance to participate in an exciting, action-packed drama workshop full of creativity, fun and topic learning too!
Up to 140 children per day.
Yes - all of our sessions are inclusive and can be adapted.
Altru Drama is a creative education company, established in 2005. We use drama as a tool to increase topic understanding, build confidence, explore issues and develop personal and social skills. We aim to inspire, create and educate - working with and for young people to help them learn, develop and grow. And we absolutely love what we do!
Through drama we aim to bring the curriculum to life, helping children explore difficult concepts or periods of history in an engaging and immersive way. Ancient Greeks is one of our most popular topics and it’s one we absolutely love – the characters of the Gods, the stories of the myths and the fascinating lives of Greek people give us loads of opportunities for creative discovery and dramatic play.
