Year four pupils from Hale School, Hollycombe Primary School, Waverley Abbey Junior, Binsted Church of England Primary and the host school took part in a series of dance, drama, art and music workshops, designed to inspire creative expression.
During their action-packed day, pupils performed a musical fight from the song ‘The Re-capture of Toad Hall’, by John Rutter, studied physical theatre interpretations to explore the different locations and atmospheres in the story, created multi-coloured masks of the creatures that inhabit the Wild Wood, and devised a dance routine based on the opening scene from the book, in which Mole is busy spring cleaning. The Royal School’s head of drama and events Ed Taylor-Gooby, who organised the day, said: “I was so pleased to see how engaged and buzzing the children were at SHINE.
“They really immersed themselves in every activity and I think everyone wished that the school day was longer.”
