Curriculum for Excellence Resources

The atmosphere and gentle approach of the performer allows the children to become active participants in this immersive piece of storytelling. Their involvement reflects the learning approaches within Early Learning and the Expressive Arts.

Opportunities for learning and curriculum links

Across all stages of the Expressive Arts children are to be given the opportunity to:

  • Experience being part of an audience
  • Respond freely and imaginatively to a range of stimuli

Early Learning: play is key to learning at this stage and this production involves the children in playful and sensory activities throughout.

This beautiful piece of mini dance theatre has been created by choreographer Siri Dybwik to appeal to our youngest audiences. Set inside a white dome the children and their carers immediately become involved in a play without words where gorgeous sculptural objects, sounds and costumes are the stimulus for a magical and sensory experience.

The intimate and neutral backdrop contrasts wonderfully with the rich purple, orange, red and gold of the costume and creates a magical setting for this truly immersive performance.

“Toddler Room is a tent of small wonders and special discoveries.”

Maximum of one adult per child (or children) inside the dome. It is fine to bring more than one child per adult.

Latex balloons are used in this performance.
