Interactive assembly

Get pupils engaged and ready to write with an Mayan assembly. It's fun and interactive. Your class will: visit ancient temple ruins; star gaze on top of a pyramid and dive into an underground cenote. Plus: you’ll find out about Mayan gods like Chac and how the Mayans tried kept them happy with sacrifices.

Mayan writing

After the assembly pupils will be primed and ready to write their stories in pairs using Creative Writing Club's clever Mayan writing materials and interactive apps. Robin will pass on some practical techniques to improve the stories. The hour long workshop ends with the pupils reading out their work on the microphone.

Feedback from teachers:

“Robin’s assembly was a fantastic combination of facts, story telling and knockabout comedy, that, whilst entertaining the whole school, also cunningly prepared the ground for their own story writing…”

“Robin’s sessions not only gave children a structure for planning a story, but really excited and inspired them so that they couldn’t wait to get writing!” Richard Smith, Deputy Head, Trafalgar School
