“Bringing a story to life is the best way to encourage our children to read”.

As part of our World Book Week celebrations pupils at Hendon

were treated to a wonderful production of Pinocchio, presented by the fabulous Image Theatre.

This magical production is one of a series of participation musicals created especially for junior schools and is designed to help and encourage children with their literacy.

The whole audience were involved in the final production – which was preceded by a rehearsal workshop in which some children were chosen to take part alongside the professionals, while the remaining audience rehearsed the chorus songs.

When Geppetto carves Pinocchio something magical begins to happen. As the wooden boy takes shape he starts to come to life, learns to walk and talk and takes on all the qualities of a mischievous little boy. Pinocchio may be disobedient but he’s also inquisitive and brave and has the most amazing adventures. What Pinocchio desires the most though is to become a real living boy – but will he?

The children were transfixed by the production and joined in with great enthusiasm.

Following this production all children, from reception upwards, will be using the story of Pinocchio as inspiration when working on a creative writing project.

The children discussed the nutritional

content of various food groups and how to make ‘healthy choices’. They learnt all about the benefits of eating, and also got to sample, a ‘rainbow’ of foods.

Thomas Franks then talked to the children about the sugar content of various processed foods. Whilst no one was really surprised by the amount of sugar in some popular breakfast cereals, everyone was astounded to learn that there are over 15 teaspoons of sugar in a small pot of shop bought salsa! Thomas Franks showed the children how to make their own healthy, sugar free, salsa which everyone agreed tasted much better that the shop bought version!

We have never seen the children so excited about eating their vegetables. Thank you Thomas Franks for a wonderful presentation and thank to the pupils who ‘devoured’ their new found knowledge with such enthusiasm.
