As part of our World Book Day celebrations we welcomed Amy from West End in Schools today. She worked with each class acting and dancing scenes from The Lorax and Coraline.
Mrs Courtney said that Robins' Class 'thoroughly enjoyed acting out and dancing scenes from The Lorax. The children were so keen and excited, they forgot to be quiet until later on! The freeze frames, movement to tell parts of the story and dance really helped the children to bring the story alive. They had such a good time and it really helped them to pick out the key parts of the story.'
Owls' Class teacher, Mrs Morley, said 'The children were really engaged in the dance activity. They worked well in groups and really appreciated that, by the end of the session, they had produced a piece of dance theatre. I was impressed at how the session was structured and paced, providing a framework but also allowing space for the children's creativity.'
