YEAR 5 THEATRE REVIEWS result in a Letter from the Headteacher and Head of Drama at Woodgreen School and a mention on their website!
On the 29th of January Year 5 attended a dress rehearsal of a major theatre production staged by pupils at Woodgreen school. I decided to use the opportunity to do some "writing for purpose". In other words we wrote individual theatre reviews of the production and then sent them to the Headteacher and Head of Drama. Writing something that will be sent and read by others is a great motivation for the childen to produce good work. You can read The Head's letter of reply to the children, along with a section off Woodgreen's website where they praise the children's reviews and cite extracts from them.
Also below are some examples of the children's reviews and finally some pictures and video clips from the performance itself.
Enjoy!
