Makers of History bring the Golden Age of Ancient Greece to life in your classroom!

We offer an exciting, interactive full day of content for up to 3 classes in line with key 2014 National Curriculum objectives.

A rich Athenian lady and a proud Spartan tutor help the children learn about the wisdom of the Ancient Greeks. From two very different city-states with contrasting outlooks on life, they cover ALL the following sessions:

  • Consulting the Oracle – children play a game to find out what lies ahead.
  • Artefact handling, amazing Athenian achievements & landmarks
  • What’s the big deal with democracy?
  • What makes a Good Spartan Hoplite?
  • Growing up in Sparta
  • Play the authentic Greek board game of Achilles and Ajax
  • Craft a souvenir of Ancient Greece
  • Got a problem? Ask the genius Archimedes
  • Theatre – all children perform a traditional play with costume, wigs, music and song!
  • Greek dancing with live music

Our Living History workshops use role-play, artifacts, hands-on activities, songs and games to ensure the children experience a fun-filled, memorable day!
