Year 5 Play

Year 5 did Scripted Drama in drama lessons this term and studied Paddington by Michael Bond.

Both forms were put in mixed ability groups and shared characters in a programme of short playlets. Children learnt to perform in the style of Brecht’s Epic Theatre, by which performers only dress in token costume and set up their own stage, as well as props whilst the audience watches. This meant we had to be very organised and responsible, each group member playing their part.

Everyone rose to the occasion and our audience particularly enjoyed the colourful and humorous characters so typical of Paddington stories.

Well done everyone!
