Shared Learning Experiences
When We Started Singing
This play has been commissioned in collaboration with Rochdale Council and has been created by the M6 Theatre Company.
The play tells the story of Mr Popple who feels lonely during lockdown and finds a way to connect with the neighbours in his street. A lovely and uplifting story for 2020. Click on this link to view the trailer.
The full version of the 15 minute film
The full version of the play with British Sign Language.
A range of creative and fun follow up activities, inspired by the film and designed to help children connect with each other.
Learn how to sign along with the song, so whilst children can’t sing with their voices in school – they can sign with their hands and hearts!
M6 Theatre Company would love to have your feedback about the play.
