Workshops and Performance
A participatory theatre production for KS2 that celebrates the internationalism and diversity of the 2021 Olympic games in Tokyo, Japan, with live action, comedy, puppets and catchy songs
The production uses simple French vocabulary, including numbers, colours, weather, animals and sports. A resource pack will be available before the show with songs and activities.
150 children maximum
Up to 60 pupils (years 3-5) will be able to participate in the show itself. They will enjoy workshops with the actors and create two scenes from the play. These will be incorporated into the final production for the rest of the children to watch, as audience.
Lion, Rabbit, Horse, Whale and Elephant, from five different French speaking countries, participate in an exciting pentathlon, consisting of: running; cycling; swimming; rowing and long jump.
The Animal Olympics supports the Listening and Speaking strand of the KS2 Programme of study as well as the OFSTED requirement for SMSC provision and developing cultural capital.
The show helps to develop confidence, teamwork and collaboration and provides a meaningful context for pupils’ language learning.
