Year 1LT enjoy listening to and telling stories. When they heard that they had been asked to perform an assembly, not only were they excited, they also wanted to share their story-telling skills with the rest of the school.
The story chosen to retell was ‘Dear Zoo’ by Rod Campbell. They decided that they would use the media of dance/drama to tell the story. The children took on the part of, not only story-tellers, but also different dancing animals. They performed amazingly well and thoroughly enjoyed themselves in the process.
They just hope that the audience enjoyed seeing it as much as they enjoyed performing it.
