Year 3 Fantastic Mr Fox workshop

All three classes in Year 3 enjoyed a special workshop this week from guests Sam Holcroft and Al Muriel, playwrights who adapted Fantastic Mr Fox into a musical. We thought about the process of adapting a story into a play and which parts of the story to create songs about. We studied the scene where Mr. Fox has the idea to start digging to the first farm and performed it in small groups. We got to ask lots of questions to our guests about how they became writers, what they like writing about and what else they have done in their careers.
