The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark

Subject: Literacy/Storytelling

Age Group: KS1

Region: London/Greater London

As your children help bring the tale of ‘Plop the Owl’ to life, they will discover that the dark can be ‘kind’, ‘fascinating’ and ‘fun’ so there is no need to be afraid!

One facilitator visits your school and works with one class at a time, using drama activities such as role-play and tableaux to explore the story, learn about Plop the Owl, and maybe even help him to overcome his fear of the dark.
