As you may know, Somerset never stands still! This year the famous and brilliant Somerset Wordsmiths Creative Writing Club will extend to the Junior School.
Mel Green, Head of House - Starkey
This term has seen a select group of Senior School students volunteer their time and creativity to produce a performance for the students in Pre-Prep and Prep. Based around the IB Theatre Collaborative Project, Year 7 to 11 students devised, workshopped, wrote, rehearsed and performed an original 20 minute performance based on the 'You Can Do It' Program.
This Program is one that is used in PYP classes to help promote confidence, organisation, resilience, persistence and cooperation. The performance explored each of these qualities by taking its young audience on a journey with two timid Year 1 students, who met some friendly “puppet people” to help them through their day.
With MYP students performing to our PYP friends for an IB Theatre task, it was not only a fusion of programs, but also a real testament to the value in working across the IB framework within the College community.
Well done to all involved!« Back to IndexNext article in this edition »
