Trip to see The Chimpanzees of Happy Town

This week we went on a very exciting trip to see The Chimpanzees of Happy Town at The Crucible Theatre.

We had been getting ready by reading the story and learning all the songs and actions.

We got the tram to the theatre. It was very exciting because it was some children’s first trip on the tram!

How can you continue learning at home?

You could look for other books by Giles Andrea at the library, some of our favourites are Giraffes Can’t Dance, The Lion who wanted to Love, Rumble in the Jungle and Commotion in the Ocean

You could click on the link above to see Polly singing the songs and teaching us the actions again

You could talk to your child about what they remember about the story or ask them to draw a picture from the story, some children have already brought some in!

You could go and see the family performance at The Crucible in March, click here to find out more

We went to The City Hall and had a very exciting afternoon. We went down on the tram with all of our friends.

When we got to the City Hall there was an orchestra and we saw lots of interesting instruments we had never seen before. There were lots of songs and actions to join in with and there were even amazing actors who dressed up and acted out the stories. We were so happy that our grown-ups came with us too.

Thank you to everybody who came!
