At the end of each term professional storytellers visit our classrooms and recount ancient Greek and Roman myths. Each session begins with a short drama skit in which students play the roles of characters from the story they are about to hear. This kinaesthetic learning solidifies their knowledge of Latin conversation, builds their confidence and offers children who do not excel at paper-and-pen-based activities another way to engage. Our storytellers then perform and by retelling a tale that has been told for thousands of years they invite students to explore universal themes and complex emotions that empower and transport.
