Julia Donaldson -Drama Information

This email was received by school. 

Hi there,

I hope you are keeping well. As we enter another week of lockdown I know the children (and parents) are starting to run out of things to do. Fear not! Here at Acting Up we are bringing you Julia Donaldson week. A week full of everything from the Gruffalo to room on the broom! On Friday 29th May at 2pm we will be hosting an online zoom interactive storytelling to "Room on the broom", complete with puppets and sensory toys to really bring the story to life. The session is all free of charge and just a way for me to bring a little bit of imagination and happiness to the children. If you would like to join please just send an email for the link to the class. Feel free to share this information to any other parents who might have little ones to enjoy this, or share on social media. I have also recorded two Julia Donaldson bedtime stories which I have linked below, I hope you enjoy.
