. . . how The Ancient Greek Olympic Show day works

  • Whole School activity
  • Suitable for Key Stages 1, 2, 3
  • Teaching materials
  • Interactive show or workshops
  • Confident, independent and creative learners

Organisation -We can teach up to 4 groups in a day. The pupils perform the show with the splats teacher who acts as the narrator. This helps cement the whole play together and of course provides a cue for the pupils. The Splats director brings props, pieces of costume and music/sound effects.

Performance – The workshops are active, fun and a real challenge for all, created with physical theatre, movement, circus, dance and scripted character acting. As we learn the show and perform it in just one day, pupils are up on stage before they have any time to think about nerves.

Please do not hesitate to drop us a line to talk through your specific needs and aims for the day, we are here to help. ;0)
