Date: 21 November
Time: Log on and welcome from 9.45am. Session starts promptly at 10am – 12pm
Peter Wynne-Wilson was the drama worker on the first Moonbeams project in 2002, and he brought his skills and ideas developed in a career as a theatre writer and performer. He has found many of those same approaches are naturally at home in early years. In this practical online session, he will share his approaches, using drama techniques and story-making to develop language and creativity with and for early years, including 0-5 year olds.
Please bring with you a ‘moonbeam’ memory to share – one funny/memorable/creative thing that you have heard or seen from, or by, a baby or young child.
No experience is needed; it will be an engaging and practical workshop and open to all abilities and backgrounds.
