It was great. Oh yes it was !

My colleague Phil and the Entry 2/1 students have just performed Cinderella as part of their Wednesday afternoon enrichment . There were no lights,scenery, stage or parents and in parts the performance was a little shaky but overall it was a triumph.The students have so enjoyed preparing the performance. It has been the highlight of the term and a fine example of embedding learning into a meaningful context. We have seen students writing cast lists, writing out the story, script reading, memorising lines, talking in sentences, contributing ideas, actively listening, working with others,learning about story structure and the tradition of pantomime. All done with lots of laughter. Thank you Phil !
