St Giles is a diverse school and has many diverse ways of learning. This week has been no exception with Drama, Forest Craft, a Literacy Dress Up day and a Topic field trip.
This half term it’s the turn of the Infants to have Forest Craft sessions. Lots of fun was had doing an egg box scavenger hunt. This linked in very well with their Topic and science within their Topic. And the children used fire steels to light cotton wool tinder, even in the rain.
The whole school took part in a drama workshop that was brought to the School by The Tinderbox Performing Arts Centre. All the children enjoyed their experience in the workshop and it gave them a little taster of what to expect at The Tinderbox Youth Theatre!
Here you can see Andrea Turner, who is The Principal of The Tinderbox, explaining just how delicious ‘Ooey gooey chewy gum’ actually is!
Andrea has had many years of training and experience as an actor and teacher (Andrea taught some of our older children at St Giles). Alongside other professionals, Andrea aims to bring the performing arts together to produce exciting collaborations and productions.
