Today, we had our first workshop with Duncan. Our aim was to be working together – being connected and aware of everyone in the group.
To warm up, we had to think of different shapes and objects. In groups we used our bodies to form them.
We then thought of belongings we would take on holiday with us. We described how we felt about going and created a word bank. This got us thinking of mixed feelings, such as excited and nervous.
Using the words, we got into groups and created freeze frames expressing the emotions. We discussed how migrating may make us feel and which emotions would be present.
At the end of the session, we mapped out ideas of a migration poem. There were no rules and the children had the freedom to write their thoughts.
