The FS2 children really didn't know what to expect when we said we were watching a pantomime in school. Some of them were very nervous as they entered the hall as the lighting was dimmed. We sat on the stage so that we had a good view and weren't too close to the action. As the story unfolded the children were engrossed and were very vocal, joining in with the punchlines and repetition of lines. Afterwards we talked about favourite characters and the consensus was that Snow White, the Jester and the Prince were their favourites. The wicked Queen was definitely not on their good list!
We are always very busy in FS2! We want our children to have fun whilst also becoming independent learners.
