This was our last rehearsal  it was directed by our  tutor Liselle. We had agreed that each pair of animals could come with similar clothes, liselle provided us with a number of costumes and improvised with some that we had brought, so we had a dress rehearsal, liselle had also invited other students to came and be our audience and also to use their opinion and feedback to improve our performance.

with our costumes and props we run through the play, and then the visiting students gave us they feed back and opinions, we briefly continued to  on out was pointed out.

Then liselle gave us a brief overview of the day :

we were going to work with two  year 2 classes for an hour each, first class was from 11am-12noon, and 1.30-2.30pm for the second class, the session was to take place on the 15th/04/2016 at Lansbury Lawrence primary school, Cordelia Street, E14 6DZ

The pupil were asked to complete some pre-workshop tasks, like  creating animal masks of the characters in play  and  we could ask to see them before the workshop / as part of it – at the start. this made the pupils co-creators of the play

liselle with the help of the music students had created an instrumental for the song in the play but because we did have enough time to rehearsal we agreed to leave it out. challenge was lack of enough time for rehearsal but our lecturer reassured us, and advised we do some extra rehearsals out of class time
