The Olympic Games were started by the Greeks in 776BC to honour the god Zeus - so why do we still celebrate and compete today?
The Olympic Games is all about winning … right? Taking part in competitions can focus so much on the end goal, sometimes we forget the dedication and discipline that is needed for success in sports. This workshop uses drama activities to explore inspirational stories of resilience and sportsmanship, and encourages your class to explore the reasons why taking part in sports can be so rewarding (even if they don’t always win).

Option 1 : Creative Play workshops are short and sweet, designed to be a burst of creativity to keep children engaged. As the sessions are usually only an hour long, we can work with four classes across the school day.
Option 2 : One Day Drama offers a full day workshop led by an experienced facilitator who collaborates with pupils to explore the topic, always focusing on content and learning. We offer the opportunity for an informal peer to peer sharing session, where the children can demonstrate what they have learnt throughout the day. This is an opportunity for children to take ownership of the experience, and can share their learning with peers or parents.
Tell us more about your classes knowledge of the topic in advance of the workshop so the content we deliver can hit the spot!
