Year 5 were incredibly lucky to have the opportunity to go to the Lighthouse Theatre in Poole to watch a production of, ‘The Lion, the Witch and the wardrobe’. Bournemouth Arts University invited us to the theatre, arranging transport and tickets without charge!
This worked perfectly with Year 5’s guided reading as this particular book had been studied by the children this year.
The children were shown to their seats by ushers before being presented with programmes and entertained throughout the afternoon.
The staff and children greatly enjoyed the performance and were inspired by the production. Since the show, the children have studied play-scripts and are currently writing their own scripts based on scenes from the show.
A huge thank you to the performers and organisers of the event.
