This week Light Bulb Fantastic helped year 3 and 4 children at Landscore Primary School, at Crediton, in Devon to bring their Greek myths alive. The students had written their own tales of what Heracles 13th task might have been.

Teacher Mei-Lin Houston said that the best part was “Being able to make their stories into real performances” and “their monsters into puppets”.

Students explored different skills. One child who struggles with written work in class, narrated a whole scene, from memory, described in a rich language that his teachers did not know he had.

The classroom was buzzing with excitement. I agree with teaching assistant, Karen Kirby, who said that the best part was “Their proud little faces when they put on their shows”
