We would LOVE everyone to get involved with Arts Week but if you would prefer to do topic lessons instead we are setting the following sessions.


Monday 22nd February 


Introduction to dramatic storytelling


In this lesson, we will explore the building blocks of storytelling, and how stories are created through drama.


Tuesday 23rd February 


Using imagination to bring a story to life


In this lesson, we will use our imagination to stage a story using our bodies, our voices, toys and other objects.


Wednesday 24th February 


Making it up as we go along


In this lesson, we will look at how we can change a story to find a different ending, introduce new characters, and create something new.


Thursday 25th February


What happens when bad things happen in stories?


In this lesson, we will be exploring a well-known nursery rhyme, that involves an unfortunate accident!  We will use this to help us consider emotions and how we might express and remember them.


Friday 26th February 


We will publish our interactive map for you to follow on the TJ Arts Week page. Go and see what our school community has been busy creating all week. Follow the map online or pick up a paper copy from Corrine's Meadow this morning. Take a walk, explore, share and celebrate TJ at its best. 


Go. See. Watch. Encourage. Celebrate. Comment. Enjoy!
