Sketches in English is a one-day festival of short English performances for children aged 6 - 16 who are not native English speakers. It is organized by our school in cooperation with the Kladska Basic School. The aim is to bring together schools, teachers, and students who like learning and teaching English through drama and theatre, give them an opportunity to see the work of others and exchange ideas, feedback, and contacts. The festival took place in 2006 for the first time and since then it has developed into a nice regular event with growing interest from schools in Prague and the surroundings. Originally the festival was conceived as a competition, but we have gradually managed to move away from the competitive end and focus on cooperation and group cohesion goals. The next Sketches in English festival is planned for May 2012. More information about the project in Czech is available HERE.
