The 1st of December the students of 3rd and 4th grade started the month by going to the theatre… in English! We watched a comic play called “Kelly’s Day Out”.
The story is a kind of adaptation of the traditional tale “Cinderella”, but in this case, Kelly doesn’t have two ugly and cruel step-sisters, but two step-brothers. She is forced by them to do all kinds of tasks “Kelly do this, Kelly clean that, Kelly come here, Kely go there…”.
One day, when she takes the bus to go shopping for her brothers, she discovers that she has taken a magic bus, a bus that can take her “wherever she wants”: the big blue bus. It takes her on a series of adventures which will be useful to her when she comes back home. There she meets a series of very special characters: an incompetent pirate called Big Bad Bob;a completely useless ghost unable to scare anyone: Gordon; and a Tarzan-type figure called Jungle Jim.
It was a great experience and we all enjoyed a lot. However, the children missed something: the bus! They were supposed to imagine it, but it was something quite hard. So, children, here you are, a BIG BLUE BUS, and some pictures of Kelly and her brothers, and the bus drivers.
