On Monday, we were visited by Callum and Lizzie from the Marlowe Theatre who delivered a workshop based on the themes from 'The Boy at the Back of the Class' by Onjali Rauf. We thought about how it feels to be new somewhere and not fit in. The children experienced this isolation through a series of games before debriefing on how this made them feel. We then related this to the characters in the story and empathised with their circumstances.

It was a really poignant way for the children to gain a deeper understanding of the plot of the story prior to seeing the show later in the week, which they are very much looking forward to!
