We had a great opportunity to participate in a six week drama project with the Kings Theatre, Southsea. This project was supported and financed by money from Children in Need.
Pupils from the Upper school were invited to attend four after school sessions that were run by the theatre here at Cliffdale Primary Academy. These sessions included lots of different aspects of drama and incorporated the theme of animals and the history of the theatre from the time of its construction in 1906.
To complement the in school sessions, pupils were given the opportunity to tour the theatre and to participate in a workshop on the stage. Having the experience of being on stage, dressed in costume and using props brought the drama to life and it was just so exciting!
To finish the project, the pupils and staff were given tickets to attend a show called Dinosaur World. It was fantastic and such a special day for all of the pupils, especially as for some, this was their first time in the audience of a live show at a theatre. Thank you to all of the kind staff at the Kings Theatre for making this possible.
