In Competency this term, Year 7 learnt about Ancient Civilisations, focusing on The Egyptians, Romans and Greeks.
In order to help demonstrate their knowledge and understanding, each form produced a short Horrible Histories style piece of drama on each of the civilisations. Various different formats were used; we had ‘Egyptian Come Dine with Me’, ‘Greeks Got Talent’ and short plays reflecting how different life was for each of the civilisations.
Students learned to work collaboratively and were extremely confident when it came to filming, including being shown to the rest of the year group. We definitely have some budding actors in our year group so school shows look good for the future!
