Running Wild

Last week, we enjoyed an exciting trip to the theatre to see ‘Running Wild’. The show is based on the Michael Morpurgo book of the same name which we have looked at together in class. We have also been working  in groups to produce posters on the effects of palm oil production and tsunamis, both of which are prominent themes in the play.

Issy said, ’It was very dramatic when the tsunami came.’

Matthew M commented, ‘The puppetry was really good. As we got further into the play I didn’t even notice the puppeteers anymore as I was so immersed. It was really clever!’

While Finlay noted, ‘I learnt a lot about the effects of palm oil production and about how poaching is a very serious issue. I will be much more aware of palm oil in the products I use.'
