Stories and Drama Project: Irish Legends

The aim of this project is to introduce students to Irish culture through its most famous legends and folktales.


Meeting the famous characters of Irish legends and folktales and learning about their exploits and attributes gives students a sense of the culture that inspires them. A story-telling task then gives students a framework for expressing their own experience of Ireland. They show their understanding of it through a video re-interpretation on a chosen story which they plan, record and edit in teams.
