Over the last two weeks, our Year 2 children have worked together on an enterprise project using their imagination, being co-operative and adventurous.

Inspired by the book ‘Where the Wild Things Are’, they produced their own puppet show-film. The children decided, as a class, how they would like to ‘twist’ this traditional story and put their own spin on it. In groups they wrote the script for their scene, designed and made the scenery and made puppets. They designed posters and flyers to advertise the show to the parents and made tickets for the big premiere! The children then practised their scenes before they ­filmed them.

On the day of the show, the children once again took on different responsibilities such as making popcorn, designing signs, selling tickets, putting out chairs, ushers and programme sellers. After the show, the children helped to count the money raised through the ticket and popcorn sales and decided which charity they would like to give the money to. Across the three Year 2 classes we raised a fantastic £150 for Tadworth Children’s Trust!
