Christopher Columbus and Neil Armstrong

Year 2 loved the workshop led by Freshwater theatre workshop. They explored the life and times of Neil Armstrong and Christopher Columbus, two intrepid explorers; recreating the events of their journeys, so pupils will discover the many similarities between these two men.
The facilitator was in the guise of a time Traveller and worked with the class, taking the children on imaginary journeys back to the 15thCentury and then to the 20thCentury. Pupils embarked on a voyage from Genoa heading west across the ocean and launched into space in Apollo 11.
