The Ark and The Dove
As part of IOW Literary Festival, Year 5 were lucky enough to take part in a story telling/drama workshop. Estelle Baker and Michele O’Brien led the workshop, The Ark and the Dove, about a true story of the struggles faced by a group of people trying to start a new life in America. Having enjoyed this session, the children are looking forward to the next.
‘The Ark and the Dove workshop was really fun. It was really interesting to hear about the true story. There was paper on the floor where we could write down what we thought about the pictures. We could ask questions, try on the old clothes and look at the awesome artefacts.
I really enjoyed trying on the clothes because it was cool putting on clothes from people that were around a long time ago.’
‘In the workshop we got to hear the story of the Ark and Dove, discovered the artefacts and acted out parts of the story. I felt like I was actually in the situation as we were told the story.’
‘The Ark and the Dove was really cool because I got to hold a sword and it was so heavy.’
