LAS Theatre – The Lion Inside: outdoor performances!

LAStheatre presents a beautiful, outdoor performance in schools for children in Reception to Year 2 from September – November 2020. The performance is accompanied by an in-depth creative learning pack with a focus on dealing with change and facing fears. This pack covers the curriculum subjects of PSHE, Science, English, and Art.

LAStheatre have obtained the rights to create an outdoor theatre performance of Rachel Bright’s ‘The Lion Inside’ illustrated by Jim Field. This story is about confidence, self-esteem, and a shy little mouse who sets out on a journey to find his roar.

LAStheatre’s production creatively and playfully explores the following themes:

  • Facing fears
  • Building confidence
  • Feeling positive
  • Dealing with change
  • Celebrating our differences and similarities
  • Playfully help pupils transition back into school post-lockdown

All this is available on the Isle of Wight now!

Who

The performance and education pack are designed to support Reception, Year 1 and Year 2 pupils as they digest what has happened during lockdown and transition back to school, whilst providing a vocabulary in the show and creative learning activity pack that encourages conversation about our thoughts and feelings. 

The creative learning activity pack is designed to be used in class after the performance to further interrogate the themes of the show, linking with the EYFS and KS1 curriculum in English, Science, Art and PSHE
