Year 6 from Christ Church School had an unforgettable experience at the New London Theatre when they were able to meet Joey the horse after a recent performance of War Horse.
“It was perfect timing,” said Year 6 teacher Laura Clow, “we have been reading the novel in our English lessons and had timed lessons to finish the story on the day of the show. The children went with the story fresh in their minds and could take a good look at how Morpurgo’s novel was translated for the stage.”
Jake from the class said it was the best evening ever and Sophie was delighted when Joey the horse came to meet the children after the performance and sneezed on her! “It was an evening the children will never forget – and it was such a wonderful opportunity to meet the cast and see a book brought to life in such a creative way. These sorts of experiences are what learning should be all about.”
