Our final exhibition for our Arts Project, “Little People, Big Worlds,” was a great success, attended by lots of parents. We were very proud of all the finished pieces created by the children in each class. Have a look at the photos to see the brilliant artworks.
Children in the Mines
Class 3 children worked in role as children in the mines. They imagined their first day in the mine, crawled through a dark tunnel and worked at some of the jobs the children in the mines would have done. They made 'freeze frames' to show what their work was like. Finally, they presented 'Dramatic Monologues' of the children of the past. Afterwards, the children were eager to write a diary in role.

Class 4 photographs from their production of A Midsummer Night's Dream at the Palace Theatre in Mansfield are now on display outside the classroom.
