Primary school pupils were treated to a storytelling adventure in a Dagenham park last week, to learn about seasonal change.
Children from William Ford Junior’s year three and four classes visited Beam Parklands, Ballards Road, for a day of creativity and fun.
The event featured local drama group, Drama Bridge, engaging with the pupils’ imaginative side to learn about changes occurring in nature at this time of year.
A story was read out about the differences seen in the park through the year before the children journeyed out to explore it for themselves.
Owner of the drama group Luisa Frisenda, 34, lead the session and delighted to see the youngsters interacting so well.

“They all had seemed to be having a good time, and I know I certainly did.”
