Spring Term 2015

The Big Drip is back - our ever-popular classic on materials and their properties.
It was just an ordinary day at the Missing Materials Bureau. Detective T Copper was just closing up shop when a call came through to him…"Some of our materials have gone missing". Who could have perpetrated this evil crime? What's so special about the properties of those materials? And why are there puddles on the carpet? Based on Attainment Target 3 of the National Curriculum for Science, The Big Drip is a quickfire, fast-talking musical comedy. Philip Marlowe meets Guys and Dolls in this light-hearted Film Noir pastiche. Touring the North and South!. .

The Writing on the Wall is a brand new play on composition, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation. Written to support the 'writing' sections on 'composition' and 'vocabulary, grammar and punctuation', the play has two versions for either a KS1 or an upper and lower KS2 audience. For KS1 we look at writing and sequencing sentences to form a narrative. We focus on planning a composition, punctuating sentences and expanding written vocabulary. For KS2 we build on this, looking at different styles of writing and how to create settings, character and plot. We learn how to organise paragraphs, punctuate direct speech and look at the use of conjunctions, pronouns and adverbs. Touring the North and South!

For Infants (4-7 yrs) we learn what makes a living thing, look at how living things are suited to their habitats, learn that food, water and exercise are essential for a healthy body, look at the five senses and name parts of the body.
For Juniors (7-11 yrs) we build on this looking at animal classification, how living things have adapted to their habitats, the circulatory system and how it works and look at the human skeleton.
