The Seven Hunters

THE SEVEN HUNTERS FROM ALIVE & KICKING
This dynamic, entertaining new drama project is aimed at Years 5 and 6.
The Seven Hunters is an interactive drama involving the in-depth exploration of a real-life tragedy – the mysterious disappearance in December 1900 of a team of three lighthouse keepers from The Flannan Isles in the Outer Hebrides. 
The Seven Hunters addresses many areas of the curriculum and will enable children to develop a wide range of personal, social and literacy skills that help prepare them for the higher level of learning, broader curriculum and greater independence that will be required of them when they move to secondary school.
 
THE SEVEN HUNTERS will
Enliven imagination, story making and storytelling 
Create a setting and characters for every child in the class to engage with and bring to life
Investigate points of action in which the children will encounter speculation, conjecture and rumour
Inspire spoken and written language as varied as that needed in:
A Meeting in the Great Hall of The Northern Lighthouse Board 
A Storm out in The Atlantic …. Signals sent by hoisted flags …. Letters home
The ancient stories from beneath the seas …. Instructions to a new Lighthouse Keeper
A long serving Lighthouse Keeper’s diary entry …. Recipes for cooking fish in as many different ways as possible
Words and ways of saying goodbye, of persuasion, creating courage, facing fear and celebrating victory.
 
“We seemed to stand for an endless while, 
Though still no word was said, 
Three men alive on Flannan Isle, 
Who thought, on three men dead.”
