P3/4 had fun on Thursday morning performing their ‘Big Bad Play’ in Strawberry Woods. Earlier in the year the class added a play performance to their Forest School wish list. Inspired by their favourite stories and nursery rhymes the children created a storyline and with Mrs Ritchie’s help they wrote their script.
Using their mathematical skills the children worked in teams to built woodland stage settings. They also explored the ancient craft of wattle fencing and included this in their final stage set.
Dress rehearsals were performed for both nursery and P1/2 pupils. Unfortunately the original performance day was rained off. However, we were very lucky that last Thursday provided a window of sunshine and our play was enjoyed by the P4-7 class and the many family members that braved the muddy pathways to our performance.
We would also like to say a big thank you to Mrs Leslie, our camerawoman. (The video will be posted at a later date, watch this space)
