stage one

As your little one becomes a big one and begins their new adventure into school our Spark groups are designed to support them through the transition. Using a variety of popular themes and stories as stimulus, groups will continue to work on developing their imaginations all whilst building their confidence and encouraging a more independent approach to their work. At this stage we also introduce basic theatre skills such as voice, movement, character, singing and storytelling and they will get the chance to experiment with props, costume, musical instruments and masks or sometimes get arty and make or design stuff to help tell their stories. They will also be introduced to idea of working together to create characters, stories and scenes and have lots of opportunities to perform them to their friends. There will be opportunities to share what they have been working on with family and friends throughout the year.
