During each session the children explore fun, new and imaginary worlds based on educational crosscurricular topics and learn to act out characters in stories and settings to create simple dramas.
Typical topics are Autumn Harvest, Space and the Moon, Jack and the Beanstalk, Time, Pirates, Aesop’s Fables, Patterns, Creatures of the Rain Forest, Under the Sea, In the City and The Circus.
