Classics for Juniors 2020: 
The Tale of Robin Hood

Since 2014, Classics for Juniors has become a very popular tailor-made theatre and language learning programme for primary and junior secondary school students. It consists of pre-show workshops, education materials, an English theatre performance and drama classes that create effective and meaningful learning experiences in a professional theatre setting for children.

Due to the pandemic, we were not able to meet the audience in the theatre as school and public performances were cancelled. We took a bold move and filmed The Tale of Robin Hood in cinematic style, incorporating it with animation and computer graphics into a TranXmedia edition. We also piloted The Tale of Robin Hood on digiAFTEC™, an e-learning innovation where teachers and students could watch the TranXmedia edition and use seven chapters of interactive teaching resources.

Piloted in 2016, this programme encouraged students to devise their own The Tale of Robin Hood skit based on AFTEC’s theatre production. Due to COVID-19, we have adopted a hybrid format of face-to-face and online teaching.
