Fun Class Assembly  Ancient 'Greeks Got Talent!'

Fun Class Assembly Ancient 'Greeks Got Talent!'

Just finished this assembly with my Y5 class, it went so well and they loved it. It involves an 'X factor' style show where each Greek god auditions to be king of the gods, whilst telling the audience a little bit about the Ancient Greeks. It involves throwing confetti at the audience, a dance routine to music from Disney's Hercules, and a boy dressing up as Cheryl Cole....if you want. Adapt and use as you want. Enjoy.

Drama Skill/Explorative Strategy 'Thoughts in the Head'

Drama Skill/Explorative Strategy 'Thoughts in the Head'

This is a drama workshop which will guide students through the process of how to use the drama skill 'Thoughts in the Head' and how to create a performance which includes this explorative strategy. It includes information on the structure and purpose of Thoughts in the Head. I have included some practical tasks to develop thinking for students. The tasks include discussion, devising and evaluation. I have also provided differentiated outcomes which will help teachers to pitch the lesson at an appropriate level for their students. It is ideal for teachers who are new to teaching Drama and for those more experienced teachers who are seeking an alternative way to teach this drama skill. It can also be used as a stand alone cover lesson by a non specialist teacher. This is an easy to use resource for the busy teacher on the go. Enjoy!

Often the students will pick up on things that you would not normally expect! Ideal for the start of a lesson, a quick filler, a homework, part of a cover lesson or as a plenary on the board with a whiteboard pen
