Year 5 create a frozen scene in drama

This week in Year 5 Drama, the students were set the challenge of creating a frozen scene from a children's book. The scenes are being prepared for an assembly in which the rest of the school will try to guess the book. This wasn't as easy as it might at first appear. Many favourites, when reduced to a frozen scene, amounted to people sitting on chairs together or lying on the floor! After a few failed attempts, the Year 5's began to think of standout scenes from the books and how they could include particular characters, body positions and facial expressions to give the audience the best chance of guessing the book correctly. The four photos below show some of the work. Can you tell which book is being portrayed in these frozen pictures?
