Our Autumn term has been a productive and expressive one here in drama. We have explored the story of Goldilocks and the Three Bears, and have delved into their world using games props and puppets. Over in Eagle and Kangaroo we indulged ourselves with 'Mr Mcgee and his big bag of bread'. Here we discovered different animals at the zoo, whilst waking up from our slumber and facing the day ahead. 

This takes us to the enchanted remote island where William Shakespeare's The Tempest takes place. Here in Giraffe and Owl we used the techniques of Kelly Hunter to explore their world and the many different characters involved. Acting out the scenes with focus and dedication.

Our winter season led us to watch and enjoy 'Fairy-tale on Church Street' at the Cockpit Theatre. We laughed, booed and wondered at the characters as the fantastical story unfolded. 'He's behind you!' and 'Oh no he's not!' echoing around the theatre in good cheer.


Onwards now to the Spring term, have a restful break!
