Grace Darling Drama!

Our second evening activity is drama tonight. We have been luckily enough to be joined by Claire from Open Minds Theatre Company, who is teaching us about freezes and levels in our drama work. We are working in teams to role-play and freeze-frame scenes from the story of Grace Darling, after seeing Longstone Lighthouse earlier! The children have learnt about what life was like living on the Farne Islands by role-playing the different jobs that Grace and her family had to carry out to survive. We then went into role as newspaper journalists, trying to persuade Grace to give us an exclusive interview! After this we discussed what makes a hero, using these ideas to build into our drama work to freeze a scene from the Grace Darling rescue.
