Greece 2012

In June 2012 we were invited to take four of our workshops for a week to a school in Athens. During our time there, we performed three Tudor, three Egyptian, four WWII and four Viking workshops. As usual all the children had a costume to wear and an appropriate prop for that era. They all had roles to play which enhanced their understanding of the period. Everyone enjoyed the week's activities and the response was, that they had never experienced anything like it before. The students were very enthusiastic and learnt whilst having fun.

We were also asked to provide a teachers inset drama session. The requirements were to offer ideas, games and be inspirational about teaching history topics. We ended up with 60 teachers in the session and they all left with something that they felt was relevant to them.

We have been asked to return in 2013 and this time take some of our KS1 workshops as well as KS2. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with the students and the teachers who gave us a lovely welcome. We would like to say a special thanks to Pauline Zoulias and Liz Ford for their wonderful hospitality and organisation, making the trip a wonderful experience for us as well. We look forward taking our workshops back to Athens next year.
