5 plays (6 speakers each) and 5 quizzes

Play 1 Tudor Explorers 

Speakers: Christopher Columbus, John Cabot     , Martin Frobisher

Richard Chancellor, Ferdinand Magellan, Sir Francis Drake

Drake: Hmm. Now, let's think. What did Columbus, Frobisher and Cabot all have in common?

                Could it be the illusive North-west passage?

Chancellor: How right you are! They all went to their deathbeds believing they had found Asia!

Magellan: Whereas they had actually stumbled upon the east coast of America!

Play 2: Drake's Round the World Voyage

Speakers: Sir Francis Drake, Captain Thomas Doughty

Sailor 1, 2, 3, 4                      

Sir Francis Drake: Welcome aboard, fellow sea dogs!

Sailor 1: I'd laugh ..but I think he means it - look at these dog biscuits we just got served up!

Play 3: Raleigh's Roanoke Settlement - Plight of Native Americans

2 parts - Part 2 can be used as a link with PSHCE  Unit 5 Living in a Diverse World - examining the plight of Native Americans.

Speakers: Part 1: Sir Walter Raleigh,Sir John White, Settler 1,2; Indian 1, 2

Part 2:Indian 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6                  

Indian 5:  Those Europeans all conveniently forgot that we were here first.

Indian 6:  It was our land they took for their own.

Indian 1: Our buffalo they killed, often just for the fun of it.

Indian 2: They took away what we needed to survive

Play 4: Anglo-Spanish Hostilities - Introduction to Slavery

Link with PSHCE Unit 5: Living in a Diverse World , looking at origins of slave trade - starting point for discussion on racial prejudice

Speakers: Sir Francis Drake, Queen Elizabeth 1st, King Phillip II (of Spain), Sir John Hawkins, Slave, Sailor

Slave: Or the Mr. Innocence. It's really not at all convincing. Not to anybody who had the dubious pleasure of being a ‘ship mate' on board one of your slave galleys.

Sailor: Conditions were bad enough for us plain sailors!

Slave: Nothing, I can assure you, could compare with what we endured.  We were treated

worse than animals, and millions of us died en route.

Play 5: The Slave

Speakers:  John Hawkins, Slave, Martin Luther King, White American Child (Maisie), Black American Child (Joel), Teacher

Martin Luther King:

According to slave codes, slaves were not allowed to learn to read and write, carry weapons, meet in groups or move about without permission.

Joel: So I guess we're back to where we started - talking about that weird definition of equality in the Declaration of Independence.

Teacher: What an amazing story! What a long way we have come since those dark days.

Martin Luther King:

Yes, but we should not become complacent. Racism is sadly not a thing of the past - there are still people who have prejudiced views.
