Arnold View Outreach
Last half term I was given the privilege to work with the foundation children at Arnold View Primary School. This consisted of delivering two drama workshops and a story telling session with small groups of children.
Within the drama sessions, the children used physical theatre, still image, sound collage and narration to explore the book Handa’s Surprise. The children were extremely enthusiastic and keen to be involved in all aspects of the workshop. We used masks and props (including real fruit to bring the story to life!) to get into character before looking at storytelling and narration.
I was also privileged to take some of our talented year 7 students to read to small groups of children, and they all engaged in reading some classics such as The Gruffalo, and The Room on the Broom. We ended the storytelling session watching another cartoon classic, Mr Ben, and everyone enjoyed sharing and eating popcorn!
I’m looking forward to working with the foundation pupils at Arnold View again!
