Year 3 Junior Girls were given a taste of Ancient Greece when
they were visited by The Freshwater Theatre Company.
The girls got to take part in a variety of games and tasks as
they were invited to go back in time to Ancient Greece to help
launch a new TV channel - Time Travel TV! They helped to compile
episodes such as "I'm an Athenian, get me out of here!" about how
Ancient Athenians survived different lifestyles, and other episodes
involving live talk shows, TV debates, Olympic athlete talent
contests and celebrity gods. The workshop aimed to be fun whilst
teaching them lots of interesting facts about the Ancient Greeks.
The girls learnt about the Greek alphabet and how our own alphabet
can be traced back to this, and about how famous Greeks such as
Pythagoras and Hippocrates had an influence on many things from
mathematics to medicine to drama that can still be felt
The Freshwater Theatre Company run literacy, history, MFL and
cross-curricular drama sessions and workshops which include drama
activities such as role play and hot seating and have links
to many creative and cross-curricular topics such as Ancient
Civilisations, Incredible Egyptians, Olympics, Toys, Second World
War, Victorians, Famous People, Invaders and Settlers and the
Seaside, as well as the Greeks.
