About the project
The introduction of a beautiful poster in class signals the beginning of an inspiring story. It is followed with the arrival of a magical cupboard that needs the help of your class. ‘Lost’ objects start to appear inside and only the pupils’ imaginations can support find their true purpose. Could the stone be having a bubble bath? Perhaps it's a hot water bottle for a rabbit? The children must help the objects find their destiny!
Teachers and nursery practitioners will receive:
- A half day online CLPL to immerse teachers in Punchdrunk Enrichment practice and to share advice and tips on how to best deliver the project.
- A toolkit of handmade props, posters and materials for simple design installations that bring The Wishing Cupboard to life in your school.
- A detailed teacher resource pack
- These materials can be used to repeat the project for future year groups.
How to take part
The project will be delivered in nurseries and P1 classes between Feb - Apr 2024, with a CPD session taking place on Friday 26 January 2024.
The Wishing Cupboard is available at £360 +VAT.
To express your interest in taking part, email Anna Broomfield (Schools & Communities Project Coordinator) by Wednesday 13 December.
