An animation project!

1927 Theatre Company would like our children to read the story ‘Simon Says' which was written in Chile (story in link below).


Next, they would like the children to illustrate certain elements of the story (list below).

The illustrations need to be drawn onto a white background (or cut out and placed onto a white background) and then photographed individually and sent to the following email address:


Our Mission:
1) Read the wonderful and wild story attached ‘Simon Says’
2) Choose something to draw/create from this list of pictures.
3) Choose your weapon! Pencil? Chewed Bic biro? Paint? Chalk? Dried pasta?
4) Take a photo of your picture and send it, at the largest size possible to 1927SIMONSAYS@GMAIL.COM
The last date for sending your pictures is 30 April 2020.
(Along with your name and age, or anonymously if you would prefer!)
5) Watch this space! We will take your artwork and create an animation.

                                                                                         The story: ‘SIMON SAYS!’

One day a human comes to visit them THEY HOWL! THEY CLIMB THE WALLS! THEY THROW HIS HAT UP IN THE AIR! The human is not the first human to have visited them HOWL! Sometimes humans come to look at them THEY CLIMB THE WALLS!

But the humans always say;

‘They are too wild! We cannot help! They are a lost cause!’


And the humans shake their heads and leave.

But this human does not shake its head and leave, it does not say ‘They are beyond help!’ Though they still CLIMB THE WALLS!

This human stays with them, THEY JUMP ON THE FURNITURE! This human is very kind, and it does not shout at them, it speaks softly THEY EMPTY THE HUMANS BAG ON THE FLOOR! But it does not mind, it shows them love and care.

This human catches them when they fall THEY SMASH A WINDOW! This human dresses their wounds and makes them feel better. THEY PUT HOLES IN THE WALL! This human teaches them how to breathe deeply and this feels good. THEY EAT THE HUMANS SHOES! But still this human stays with them and teaches them many things.

The beasts sleep, and they dream beautiful dreams...

Then one day...

The beasts watch the human, they show it care, and catch it when it falls, and dress its cuts and bruises IT SMASHES A WINDOW! IT SETS FIRE TO A CHAIR! But the beasts are patient, and they are kind, and they wait, like the human did with them, and soon the human calms down again and is peaceful again.

Sometimes humans come to see them and say ‘They are changed!’ they clap their hands and say ‘It is a miracle!’ But the beasts know it is not a miracle.

Kindness and patience are not miracles. Anybody can learn them.
And so they live, the beasts and the human, in perfect harmony.
But sometimes...when the mood takes them...

Art Project!


Mrs Comber would like everyone to take part in the following art project; please keep anything that you create so that we can exhibit our artwork once we're reunited! First, here's a lovely poem written by the Tate art gallery to help inspire our work:


A home can be a world

chaotic and noisy

ordered and quiet

brightly coloured or dimly lit

a place to be yourself

sometimes uncomfortable

sometimes unsettling

sometimes cosy

sometimes calm

a place where important things happen

a place where ideas bounce around

a place where sadnesses are cushioned

a place where dreams visit, memories are made and bodies rest

a place you can see differently everyday

a place that's just the same

A home can be a world


Please find the art project below:

Mrs Comber, Jasper and Quentin have been busy creating their artwork for the project (yes, we've been playing with lots of Lego!)
