West Park Primary School and Penn Hall School take part in Counter Culture

The Arena Theatre’s theatre, education and heritage project, Counter Culture, will be working with two Wolverhampton schools – West Park Primary and Penn Hall. Pupils from these schools will be working together to find out about their communities by exploring how exchange over the counter has changed in the lifetime of local residents. The pupils will learn about oral history gathering; visit the City Archives to see where their work will be stored; interview local people about their experiences ‘over the counter’ and then dramatise their findings to create a performance at the Arena Theatre in March 2014. A book and an exhibition of photographs will follow. cropped-dscf5172.jpg

      If you want to show how happy you are then don’t use a ] use a ) or D,P

        I have to if because of me moving 😦 ;( but atleast I stayed long enough to do this ❀ awsome ❀ project. πŸ˜€ πŸ™‚ hehe πŸ˜‰

  7. Simrit says:

    Hopefully we get this done…we have so little time and we’ve barley got much done :p
    But I am sure we will be fine and that every one will love our performance!
    I’m wondering if we’re all going to stay In the same groups or if we’re going to get turns for everything ;).
    I can practise my lines with other people On my table like a Amrinder so that’s nothing to worry about,I am sorting out my clothes but not to worry I have a ton black this and a ton of black that.This is sooooooooooooooooooooo much fun I have a feeling that were going to do even
    More after our performance (but really that’s the last bit of this project ); )anyways this doesn’t seem to worry me at all because for some reason I am more confident than usual!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    …..yay πŸ™‚

  8. Wiktoria says:

    I am looking forward to our performances and I am hoping that a lot of people are coming to see us. It will be awesome and I hope everyone that comes to watch will like it too. I β™₯ it so far and I’m soooooooooooooooooooo confident about this!!!!!! I can’t wait to do it. We haven’t had a long time to prepare for everything but I think it will be cool and I hope that you agree with me. I hope everyone in class is loving this as much as me. I am sure we will be fine and everyone will enjoy our performance!This is sooooooooooooooooooooo much fun, I wish we could do more (but this is the last part of the project πŸ˜₯ I’m still reeaaallllly happy about the performance)

    Loving everything and hope we can have more fun with Lisa in Year 6 :{

    I don’t know why that bothers me but everyone writes someything interesting on this blog so ya.

  21. amrinder says:

    • Simrit says:

      Okay why on earth can I NOT find Jamie and Amanpreet’s comments this is ridiculous
      Jamie you said you put on the first page… :/ (I don’t see any replys)
      Amanpreet if you put a comment on one of these pages then you must remember which one or I won’t believe you.
      I have checked everyday and every time I look a the “recent comments” it’s only the ones I HAVE seen and never yours. 😦
