On Monday 5th December, the children in Y4 attended the Brady Arts Centre.
They went to see a performance by the collective ‘TROUPE’.
The performance that the Year 4 cohort watched was called ‘The Empty Chair’. It was a playful musical adventure exploring themes of loss, change and friendship. The story was told through a blend of original poetry, live sound, audience participation and adventurous repertoire for voice, cello and piano.
The children learnt how poetry can be portrayed in many different forms, and how stories can be told through poetry.
This performance had an impact on the the way children performed poetry in their own lessons adapting the different techniques and styles that they had watched.
