The following pages form a hybrid case study on the work of teacher Jacquie King and pupils at Birkhill Infants school. It covers two productions from '98 and '99, The Wizard of Oz and Oliver! The reason for this is that during preparation of Oliver! it became clear that the project was not going to have the curricular integration that Jacquie wanted, this in itself is an indecator of the view of Drama in UK schools. So we present the stages in production for Oliver!, but use the curricular linked materials from Wizard of Oz as examples of the kind of integration that can take place if the situation allows it.
This part of the site is very much 'under construction' but is being made public at this early stage to allow access to teh materials as they develop. Much of what you will find here is taken from the document Sheffield 99 case studies.
The following links are currently avaialble:
Video materials: Here you can view the edited video footage from the production of Oliver! and interviews with the children. These materials will be integrated into this site soon.
