The Wild Wood – Key Stage 2
Problem solving, citizenship, group work, supporting friends.

Be prepared to be catapulted into the centre of the Wild Wood where you will meet some of its weird and wonderful inhabitants. Mole is lost, he’s let his friend down and he needs your help. You will be transformed into different characters and embark upon a journey to reunite Mole and Rat.

Behind The Scenes – Key Stage 3
Citizenship, independent learning, innovation, literacy.

How can you create a riverbank, a courtroom and a Wild Wood, as well as all of the different animals that dwell there? Using everyday objects, physical theatre and most importantly your imagination we will explore the many possibilities for building a fantastical Toad and we may well let you in on a few of our secrets too.
