On the Tuesday the 23rd of August, The Drama Toolbox came to visit the Grade Ones. Each class got to participate in an hour workshop entitled “Minibeasts” with the very wonderful Amy- a skilled drama specialist. With beautiful costumes and delightful music, the children were able to became a minbeast and explore the environment around them. With butterflies, dragaonflies, ladybirds, slaters, spiders, worms and caterpillars, children used dramatic techniques and movement to create a mini beast spectatular. A few notable comments by the children included:
“I loved being a worm because I got to dress up” (Sarah R)
“I liked dressing up like a caterpillar because he ate the leaf” (Jake)
“I liked dressing up and playing the pass the pretend food ant game” (Mikayla)
“I got to dress up as a butchy boy and had to roll up in a ball when the spiders were coming near” (Jesse)
It will only be a matter of time before we see some children being Hollywoood superstars!
What did you dress up as?
