At Comber Grove, we are partnered with The Blue Elephant Theatre in Camberwell. The Blue Elephant Theatre produces an eclectic programme of new work across the performing arts from physical and dance theatre to new writing and revamped classics.
The children at Comber Grove Primary are lucky enough to work closely with the professionals at The Blue Elephant Theatre, on fabulous performances, developing their spiritual, moral, social and cultural identities and building self-esteem. The children have regular workshops in school and then get the opportunity to perform at the theatre for parents, carers and the local community.
Most recently, our Year 3s have put on a performance entitled “The Stone Age”, about a group of children travelling back in time. This linked with their history topic as well as developing their speaking and listening and drama skills.
"Performing on the stage was really exciting. At first I felt nervous but then I felt really proud." Year 3 child.
"I want to do it all again, it was the most fun learning. Now I feel more confident to speak in front of people." Year 3 child
