Adrift performance Tuesday 29th January 6.30 pm , by Mrs Bailey

Date: 25th Jan 2019 @ 6:54pm

We look forward to seeing as many families as possible to the Adrift performance this Tuesday evening in school. The performance is pitched at Key Stage 2 children and will take place in the school hall. Families and children are welcome.

Oldfield Primary School, Action Transport Theatre and the Ignite Teaching School Alliance would like to invite you to our community showing of Adrift:

Two children are in a boat. One is rowing. One is fishing. They dream about a land, a beautiful land that’s waiting for them. A safe land. Adrift is a poignant and important play from acclaimed children’s theatre company Action Transport Theatre. Told from the perspective of two children adrift at sea fleeing conflict, it is a celebration of the resilience and imagination of childhood.

Time - 6.30pm on Tuesday 29th January 2019 at Oldfield Primary School.

Doors open at 6.10pm, refreshments available both before and after.

Please join us after the show for a discussion about the play and how we can develop our curriculum to support our children in their learning.

Please RSVP to head@oldfield.cheshire.sch.uk , admin@oldfield.cheshire.sch.uk or call 01244 981772 by Tuesday 22nd January
