Baby Goz Activity Sessions for Children Aged 3 to 7

  • Group size 30 to 100 children: The action: First, I draw Goz and his friends. The children join in by trying to guess what animal it is going to be. They suggest names and new characters. Some children are invited to come up and add details to the drawings, such as whiskers and claws, but the line intended to be a dog, may end up as a baby standing on its head!

  • The GOZ play: We read the first Goz story, then the children act it out using the costumes and the karaoke machine. They become a living book. The stories can change and extra characters can be added depending on the size and length of the session. The idea is to give a spark to the children's imagination and creativity, so that afterwards they can make up their own stories and drawings in class.

  • The Three Little Puzzle Pigs: 5 children act out this version of the well known story with a lot of audience participation and the new Story Play Fold Away houses. Can get quite lively!

For Children Aged 7+

Charlie the Dog: Interactive class reading with small Charlie Dog costume and large two child size costume taken for a walk at the end. Charlie's Walk and The Marys' Other Animals story plays in production.
