Mimika Theatre Visits Westgate

24th September 2018
This week we had such an exciting visit from Mimika Theatre. Jenny and Bill took over half of the school hall with their beautiful bell tent. Then, one by one, each class entered the tent and were taken to different landscapes, where they saw different animals in their own habitats and watched their day unfold.
After each performance, the children got to learn about the puppets that Jenny and Bill had made and to ask lots of questions. To sum up how much the children enjoyed it, Rachael said, "This is the best afternoon of my life: My whole life!"
The experience was beautiful and inspiring for all the children. Back in the classroom, each class responded to the experience through artwork and writing and then with their learning logs at home. Their creative responses have been amazing to see!
We are very grateful to Jenny and Bill and are already looking forward to welcoming them back next year for a new performance.
