Drama as Leeds school hall is transformed

Have your say

A SCHOOL hall was transformed into a magical world as part of project to ignite children’s interest in classic literature.

Staff at Yeadon Westfield Junior School created their ‘Thing in the Hall’ theme centred on classic children’s books Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, The Jungle Book, The Wizard of Oz and The Enchanted Forest.

Children enter The Enchanted Forest section of the hall down the ‘slippery slide.’

Staff dressed as characters from the books for role play and drama.

And children of all ages carried out a wide range of activities from all areas of the curriculum, including writing, reading, art work, music and cookery.
