NICIE is adding to its resources for teachers on this decade of anniversaries. Please see the latest exciting connected learning resource on the theme of the Easter Rising. The user friendly materials are suitable for use with Key Stage 2/Key Stage 3 students.
Voyage of Discovery
“Voyage of Discovery” is a short play which explores local history and fishing traditions of Crumlin Village, Co Antrim . It was commissioned from and performed by “Nitty Gritty” integrated theatre company. The play provides opportunities for teachers and students from all religious and traditional backgrounds to explore their rich and shared heritage.
Pupils from Crumlin Integrated College performed the drama for parents and community in June 2015. The link to the script can be found below:
Andrea Grimason has written two drama scripts, which are freely available for use in schools. These can be downloaded from the NICIE website, by clicking the links below:
The second is ‘Bridge Building’, a script written with school assembly in mind, with performance opportunities for a complete form class. Minimal staging and props required. (Complete script: Bridge building)
Mixed emotions video
“Mixed emotions” is a 30 minutes play with live music that explores the issues faced by couples from different religions and cultural traditions. A useful resource for teachers.
The discussion at the end has been captured too and is really interesting.
