January started with a very busy and energetic rehearsal period in preparation for this term’s projects, a great way to burn off all that goose fat consumed over the holidays!
This week, Malcolm has started the tour of Bag of Beans, our Key Stage 1 programme set in the world of the traditional tale of Jack and the Beanstalk. By using their mathematical knowledge the children will be invited to investigate the world of the giant, and by undertaking challenging quests they will unlock his secrets in the hope of finding their way to his treasure.
Also this week Juliet and Kim have begun the tour of The Romans, our Key Stage 2 History programme which explores life in Britain under Roman rule at the time of Queen Boudica’s revolt.
Simon is currently on the last leg of the very popular tour of Tapestry in Secondary schools, colleges and PRUs. The programme explores the implications and consequences of extremist thinking and action. After half-term Simon will be touring, our Early Years Literacy programme, By the Riverbank, which immerses children in a rich fictional world inspired by Wind in the Willows. There will also be public performances of this programme performed at The Birmingham REP in April. More information can be found here.
There is limited availability on all tours this term but we will try to accommodate any booking requests as best we can. Our Summer term primary tours are starting to fill up fast too.
Further information about all the programmes listed above can be found through the ‘Latest Projects’ section on the home page of our website and for Summer term 2015 information please get in touch.
