Wrestling - Activity 3


Watch Mark Jenkin’s film about the St Columb Club.

Notice how the film is ‘narrated’ by Mike Cawley; shots of the wrestling are put over his voice but you don’t actually see him talking.

Ask pairs to interview each other about the ancient origins and philosophy of their own newly-created ‘ancient Cornish sport’.

Ask interviewers to share what makes good questioning technique and collect examples of good (‘open-ended’) questions on the board.

Ask each group to agree together on some of the main details about where, when and why their sport was invented.

‘Hot-seat’ individuals or groups and find out all you can about their sport.

Film or sound-record these interviews.
