Myths and Legends School Trip Ideas
The teaching of myths and legends for Literacy at KS2 and History at KS2 falls under the English programme of study and can be used to support the exploration of different writing styles, with their English comprehension, and give children an insight into different cultures around the world. Whether your class is looking at fictitious fairy tales and made-up myths, or long-ago legends and spellbinding storytelling, we have listed a few companies below who can help you teach this inspiring subject.
Day trip venues, drama workshops, and creative writing exercises associated with myths and legends can be incredibly useful for supporting your class topics. Such activities will allow your pupils to develop their creative interpretation of literacy and language, with written and oral re-telling of stories that have been handed down for generations, and have roots lost in the mists of time.
Perhaps the most famous examples when we think of myths and legends are the likes of Romulus and Remus, the twin brothers and the founding of the Italian city of Rome, or the Greek Myths such as the story of Perseus and Cassiopeia, and King Cepheus - characters who have been immortalised in the night sky in the form of constellations. But closer to home there are many fabulous Celtic myths and legends in Wales and Scotland to be explored, not to mention the likes of King Arthur and Robin Hood in England.
