The children thoroughly enjoyed this performance. They were absolutely captivated. The play reinforced many key areas of learning, including ‘Evolution’ from the new curriculum. It was challenging subject matter made explicit. The children were all engaged, at their level of understanding. And it’s not just the children, I’ve learnt a lot about my brain today.
