Year 2 have been exploring the fascinating character of Beegu during drama and literacy lessons. We have been reading the Beegu book and finding out more about the main character. She shouldn’t be on earth; some of the people that she meets aren’t behaving very friendly towards her.
We have taken this theme to help to explore some of the emotions that Beegu must be feeling. Year 2 have been working in small groups during our drama sessions to act out some of the scenes in the book.
Each group was presented with a card detailing a specific scene. Our task was to come up with a short piece of drama to share. We wanted the children to think about how Beegu must be feeling, and also the reactions from some of the humans that she meets.
