Year 1 have just started a wonderful theatrical project, working very closely with our friends from Southwark Playhouse. This is a piece of work that will run all the way through until half term, and will help the children explore the theme of a fantasy island. Central to our work is the idea that the children are going on a fantastic journey. We have been thinking about ideas as to where we might be going, what we might see along the way and what problems we might encounter. Our first drama session with Stuart from Southwark Playhouse had the children thinking about what they could eat and drink if they were shipwrecked, where would they sleep, as well as learning a fantastic new pirate song. Year 1 are going to use this project to also create their own masks and costumes, ahead of a performance before half term. A very encouraging start!
