Dance and Drama: Fifth Form Pupils Host Prep School Workshops
Eighteen students from across Bede’s Fifth Form recently collaborated in the creation of three Dance and Drama workshops which enlightened and entertained children in Bede’s Reception, Year 1 and Year 2.
The Fifth Form pupils designed separate workshops for each year group themed around the Bede’s Nursery and Prep School topics for this half term under the umbrella title ‘Knock Knock.’
The Reception children eagerly listened to the story ‘Aliens Love Underpants’ and this inspired them to move like aliens and become creepy creatures from outer space, all before putting on their space suits and boarding a rocket ship back home.
The Year 1 students then explored their Treasure Boxes before going on a time travelling adventure which took them through imaginary doors into worlds of dragons, living toys and shooting stars.
Finally, the Year 2 children brought the story ‘Something Else’ to life through drama improvisation and a number of games through which the pupils explored and unravelled the intricacies of friendship.
The Senior School students are now going to use the ideas and imaginations of the Bede’s Nursery and Prep School children to create a performance specifically for them, which will be performed at the end of November.
