Traction Man!

Today in Literacy we freeze framed parts of Traction Man and thought about how the characters might be feeling and what they might be saying or thinking! Can you tell which characters we are meant to be?

The Frog Prince

In January The Hobgoblin Theatre Company visited our school to perform ‘The Frog Prince’. Nursery, Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 were lucky enough to watch the performance and take part in a drama workshop afterwards.

The children really enjoyed the performance and they were extremely keen to participate in the workshop! The children had lots to say about the performance afterwards:

“I liked the part when the princess couldn’t remember the magic word and she thought it was potatoes!”

“I liked it when the frog turned into the Prince because it was crazy and magical”

“I liked the bit when the frog was eating the food and it disappeared and he threw the plate on the floor”
