Hansel and Gretel Primary School Activity Overview

Hansel and Gretel Primary School Activity Overview

Here is a great overview of lots of activities based on the full text of the tale of Hansel and Gretel from the collection made by the Grimm brothers. There is a full introduction to the text used, with a brief historical context to the setting. I have included an approach to how to introduce the text to children, either as a read story or a performed oral tale. Following that, there are extensive activities designed for warm-up games for concentration or drama, creative activities indoors or outdoors. at Forest School or similar. Tasks include: carving, cookery, puppetry, making and following pathways, fire safety, hot chocolate and bread, having a feast, drama, problem solving, art and design, science (light and dark), poetry and understanding texts. I have included a recommended background reading for teachers interested in the history of the Grimms Tales and the more rewarding versions of the stories than the norm. Most of the activities are suitable for EYFS or Key Stage 1, but Lower Key Stage 2 would probably benefit from them too.

All the elements of the T.A.L.K. and L.E.A.R.N. process can be successfully adapted across the curriculum. Students are encouraged to use the lesson Learning Intentions and Success Criteria, to take ownership of their learning, to give meaningful feedback and feed forward and to treat each other with respect and kindness, fostering positive, healthy relationships. To encourage development of effective peer and self assessment skills, teachers should model the ‘TALK’ and ‘LEARN” approaches frequently with students. Teachers and students should also “mix it up” - students can TALK to themselves or LEARN with a peer. or make use of a rubric.

Megamusicals - The Hit British Musicals of the 1980s

Megamusicals - The Hit British Musicals of the 1980s

This resource is intended for KS3 Drama students. It teaches them about the rise of one of the most successful genres of theatre - the Megamusical. Students will learn about the emergence of the sub-genre during the 1980s, as producers such as Cameron Mackintosh and composers such as Andrew Lloyd Webber created iconic musicals such as Cats, Les Miserables and The Phantom of the Opera. These combined universally appealing stories, catchy songs, creative sets and spectacular special effects into a unique and exciting production, allowing British theatre to reach new heights of commercial success. This resource will prove useful for drama students seeking to learn more about the making of musicals and their impact with audiences all over the globe. It is especially useful for those seeking to learn about staging and set design, as it places particular emphasis on set designers like John Napier, who played a major role in making the Megamusicals stand out by giving them a distinctive visual style which could impress theatregoers throughout the world. The Megamusicals resource contains a Powerpoint, a transcript to be used by both teachers and students, a worksheet containing questions for students, and a sheet containing a unique homework assignment which will allow students to demonstrate their creativity and their understanding of musical and theatrical conventions.
