This week, in Miss Watson’s after school drama club, the children have been exploring a play text they originally read during a Guided Reading session. The play is called ‘Jack and the Author’ and was created by Julia Donaldson, the celebrated children’s author. The play is based on the well-known and much loved Fairy tale, ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’.
The children made masks, discussed the characters and events and then acted out the play, each taking a part. They had a wonderful time.
The drama group aims to build the children’s confidence, social skills and language, whilst exposing them to new books, language and vocabulary.
