We are working hard in our rehearsals for West Park Welcomes The World! Professional artists Dawn, Lisa, Mary and Purvin are helping us. Only 10 days to go now before we have to be ready! We have used the research we did and stories we gathered before half term to create a play all about our school. Through shadow puppetry, films, songs and acted scenes, we think our production will inform, shock, move, entertain and fully engage our audiences!
Here are some comments on the creative process so far from Year 5 children:
"Our performances portray different emotions and explain our school history." Ella
"I think this is going to be pretty fabulous. It's already looking very good." Poorva
"I am finding this really interesting, because we are learning about the history of our school and we get to act it out ourselves." Zaynab
"I am finding it very hard to do the acting, but I think it is very good." Taron
"I am happy, because I have lots of acting to do." Arow
"Hopefully this performance will change the minds of other people." Eesha
