Troy Story Assembly
Year 5 pupils at Bourne Abbey C of E Primary Academy, had a fantastic start to their ‘Who Let the Gods Out’ topic by putting on an educational and entertaining performance to their parents and carers last week.
Dressed as Greek Gods and Trojans, they treated their audience to a retelling of the story of the fall of Troy through drama and songs. The performance began on top of Mount Olympus where we joined the Greek Gods before travelling across the Aegean Sea to Troy to win back Helen from Paris. All the children were involved to make this an amazing production. The acting and singing parts were a chance for children to enjoy their moment in the spotlight and the children showed great perseverance learning their lines and songs.
Due to the children’s enthusiasm and courage, the performance was enjoyable for both the children and their audience. They learnt first-hand what it was like to be a Greek and Trojan and how different life was in Ancient Greece. Mr Shore (Assistant Head) said ‘Well done Year 5 we are all very proud of you and your performances, what a fantastic start to our new topic. You definitely have the Wow Factor!’
