Arts Days 2017

Travelling Light Theatre Company worked with our pupils in Years 1 - 6 across both sites over our Arts Days. Our pupils were immersed in workshops ranging from dance to mask work and from improvisation to sound effects, microphone technique, group choreography, shadow puppetry, sketch and more....

Our arts team gave the whole school an exciting, challenging stimulus to use as a spring board for creating theatre. This was the poem "The Stag" by Ted Hughes. The poem looks at the relationship between man and nature and our pupils explored the poem not only in dance, drama, music and art, but also in their literacy work and in connection to Bishopston's Window Wanderland.

Travelling Light is an international, award-winning theatre company based in Bristol. Their mission is "to create outstanding theatre for and with young people that inspires their thinking, engages their emotions and fires their imaginations."
