Junior School – Foundation and KS1 – Drama

Summer Term News

The children in Foundation Years have loved building stories based around Mrs Lovely in Butterflies and The Frog Prince, in Reception.

The Butterflies drama work has linked with their topic of growing and mini-beasts.  Rosanna has made a fantastic Mrs Lovely, whose garden holds a magical shrinking machine, which has taken the children on journeys into the undergrowth!

Reception have learnt about fairy-tale characters both good and bad and created alternative endings which they incorporated into their independent writing.

Year 1 have re-enacted parts of the popular Roald Dahl book, George and his Marvellous Medicine, creating potions and dressing up us George’s Grandmother.  Year 2 have been incredibly imaginative, creating a new play area for the children in the village, where the Selfish giant lives.

I have been very impressed by the level of confidence and excellent speaking and listening skills, demonstrated across the department.  We have some very talented performers!
