Maitland Area School

Maitland | Yorke Peninsula | South Australia

The Kindy visited the school for some special lessons on Monday May 18, joining the R/1 class for drama in the Performing Arts Centre.

After some drama warm-ups, the R/1 class acted out the story of the Three Billy Goats Gruff. They tripped-trapped over the troll bridge, asked him to 'eat their brother, who is bigger' and showed how the troll ended up being head-butted into the river.

Then it was the kindy children's turn. They split into four groups - Little Billy Goat, Middle-sized Billy Goat, Big Billy Goat and Troll.

The trolls hid under the bridge where the river went through. Each group then trip-trapped over the bridge, acting out the story.

Puppet time

Then it was the puppets' turn to play! Everyone was given a puppet and practised making voices and movements. Then we acted the story out all over again, but with each child performing all four characters.  Everyone did a great job and we look forward to your next visit with us.
