Winter Play

Hi all,

Our Winter play this year is "How the Grinch Stole Christmas". We began reading it last week and the children got their parts. 

I gave out the scrips today with the different parts highlighted. There is a lot of reading in some of the parts so the children will need support at home in order to learn their part. 

These scripts need to be brought back in every day so we can practice together!

Our play is on Thursday the 21st of September at 10am

It's a fun play with parts for everyone so I'm looking forward to seeing it all come together!

If I have particular costume requirements I'll let you know during the week.

Thanks,
Sarah

A small number of children are working with a different reader that was given to them by Fiona or Paula. They should aim to read this reader along with Looking After Zara. If this is taking too long the priority should be given to the reader from Paula/ Fiona. This group will know how much they should read.
