Climb Aboard is a participatory workshop for 3-6 year olds which explores transition, memory and family history.
It’s moving day and Jim and Grandma are accidentally locked in the attic. While they wait to be rescued they explore the precious things waiting to be found; from Grandma’s life as a girl in Jamaica, to Jim’s more recent past and to the exciting future ahead. Through an exciting mix of creative play and storytelling the children help Jim to embrace the changes in his new life, whilst joining him on a journey back into his heritage.
Children will experience a rich language environment; develop their confidence and skills to express themselves, speak and listen.
Children will develop social skills and learn how to manage their feelings. They will be encouraged to develop a positive sense of themselves, to form positive relationships and develop respect for others.
Children will gain a sense of their world by exploring and finding out about people, places, technology and the environment.
Children will be involved in creative play and sharing thoughts, ideas and feelings through role play
“The children were transfixed from the start. All the children were encouraged to join in regardless of home language and additional needs. It was mesmerising to both children and adults.”
EYS teacher, Osborne Nursery.
