French Play for Primary School Children
On 15th March, as part of our Primary Foreign Languages outreach work, we welcomed at school over two hundred and fifty primary school children from 9 schools in the borough: they came to enjoy a play entirely in French performed magnificently by the well-known company, Théâtre sans frontières. The children had worked on the songs and story in the weeks preceding the show and could participate fully in this interactive play.
Not only did the children hear and speak French for a whole hour but they also experienced a variety of theatrical styles, from physical theatre to puppets, from slapstick comedy to silhouette shows. A feast for the ears and eyes which the children relished. Pupils from one school on their way home were eagerly asking: will there be another one soon?
