Ancient Greek Adventure!

Subject: History
Age Group: 7-11 Year Olds (KS2)
Available in London
 

Are your children courageous enough to join the Time Traveller on a daring mission, journey back to Ancient Greece and persuade Zeus, a rich Athenian and a Spartan slave to help them?

Two facilitators visit your school with a small set, props and costumes. The children go on an imaginary journey back into the past with the hapless Time Traveller. 

There are many interactive elements and the students are involved in solving Greek-related activities to help the Time Traveller graduate from time travel school.

 

Key Areas

  • Culture - theatre, philosophy, democracy, Olympic Games
  • Social structure - life in Sparta, the role of women, slavery
  • Lifestyle - clothes, pastimes

"Children were able to talk enthusiastically about the experience, recalling lots about what they had learnt. The learning reinforced lots of the requirements of the National Curriculum as well as enthusing the children about the subject matter."

Mark Ebden, James Cambell Primary School, Dagenham
