Key Stage 2 form their own company as part of project work

12th May 2017

Ancient Greece has invaded our learning at Wandsworth Prep!  On our return to school after the break, a very frustrated Hermes visited Key Stage 2 wanting some ‘mortal’ help with problems between the egotistical Gods.  After some drama exploring the arguments between them and the effect on ‘mortals’, we undertook this challenge and formed our company: Helpers to the Gods.

At Wandsworth Prep, we use these dramatic scenarios as inspiration for learning.  These inspiration days kick off the learning and fire up the pupils’ curiosity.  All pupils have a purpose for their curriculum studies in the areas of History, Geography, Writing, ICT, Design and Technology, Drama and Art.

Under the ‘guise’ of supporting the Gods, the pupils have needed to carry out research.  A wide range of topics have been studied so far: democracy, Ancient Greek homes, the Gods, Greek meander patterns in Art, comparison of weather in Greece and the UK, philosophy, debate and drama around Hades and Persephone.

This week each year group has had a question to debate in their writing:

Was it wrong for Pandora to open the box?
Should the Elgin marbles be returned to Greece?
Athens vs Sparta: Where was the best city state to live?

Next week is story-telling week where we will be awash with the sounds of Greek myths.  We visit the Polka theatre on Wednesday to see a professional story-teller act out ‘The Odyssey’.  We can’t wait!
