A great way to start or round off The Greeks topic.
Pupils can speed through the planning stage and write better Greek myths (in pairs) using my Greek myths writing frame.
I am a children’s author who offers assemblies and creative writing workshops for all ages and abilities. Holding a writing day is a great way to start or round off The Greeks topic.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for prices and availability. I also offer a wide range of assemblies and workshops – everything from The Celts to the Stone Age.
What happens in your Greek assemblies?
Pupils take part in lots of fun and interactive things including: Meet the Monsters, Sparta vs Athens, make laws with Draco the Tyrant, Act out a Greek play using masks etc.
How does the writing element work? I follow the assembly up with ‘Accelerated Writing’ workshops where children write their own stories in pairs. This is sure to generate some epic Greek tales!
Who is this for? Sirens and Spartans are a bit too scary for Reception, (I do a special assembly for younger children) Everyone from Y1 up is welcome to attend my assembly. I tailor the content of each workshop to suit Y1-Y6.
Who are you? I have written 14 books suitable for ages from Reception to Y6, including The Olympuss Games series (which is set in ancient Greece in a world ruled by cats.) My latest book is called The Maze of the Minopaw. Parents in Touch said: ‘Please, do introduce them to your child; they are such fun and they will encourage an interest in ancient history!’
