Performance Days

Performance Days: These are special days for a whole year group or whole school to participate in. Children watch a 30 – 45 minute performance by 2 – 4 actors and then receive class workshops to follow up the topics covered in the performance. They culminate with the children coming back together at the end of the day to share their own work with each other. Great for Book Weeks and other special occasions.
