Today is show day - we are going to make shows! We'll think about all the things we need to make a show, and different types of ways we can do it. What kinds of shows have we seen? What do you remember seeing, for eg people, costumes, props, a stage. Shows/concerts/theatre make stories come alive. The story becomes an active and interactive experience. It’s a way for us to express ourselves, trying out different voices, ways to walk or stand, ways to move our face, clothes. It helps us learn about and understand the world around us.
