World Book Day- Drama

We had a drama workshop today! 

Our workshop was based on the book, 'Wild'. 

In Emily Hughes’ beautiful picture book we meet a little girl who has known nothing but nature from birth – she was taught to talk by birds, to eat by bears and to play by foxes – she is unashamedly, irrefutably, irrepressibly wild.

That is, until she is snared by some very strange animals that look oddly like her, but they don’t talk right, eat right, or play correctly. She’s puzzled by their behaviour and their insistence to live in these strange concrete structures known as ‘apartments’. There’s no green here, no animals, no trees, no rivers. Now she lives in the comfort of civilisation. But will civilisation get comfortable with her?

We had to create some freeze frames based on different sections of the book and then we had to bring them to life. We had to imagine what it would be like to be 'a wild' brought into civilisation and then imagine how the wild and the people could help each other. It was great fun- check out the picture attached to see our freeze frames and still images.
