Peter Pan Week 2012

Fly away to Neverland with Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity

Posted: 14 February 2012

The world famous Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital has long fostered strong connections with Peter Pan author JM Barrie, who gifted the rights of the enchanting childhood tale to the hospital in 1929. Now, the Great Ormond Street Children’s Charity are offering school pupils the opportunity to experience the wonder of Neverland and the boy who never grew up as well as raising money for an admirable cause with Peter Pan Week 2012.

From February 27 until March 2 schools up and down the country will be transforming their classrooms into Neverland and taking part in a range of Peter Pan inspired activities, with all proceeds going towards parent and family accommodation at Great Ormond Street Hospital, enabling a parent to sleep next to their child or stay nearby, offering a sense of comfort throughout a difficult time.

Great Ormond Street Hospital have offered some top tips to teachers on how their class can get involved including:

Make your own Peter Pan costume
Encourage your class to put their creative skills to good use by creating their own costume. The website includes a handy video demonstration featuring Children's BBC SMART presenter Kirsten O'Brien and ex-Great Ormond Street patient Lydia creating their own costumes. The page also includes a step-by-step guide with downloadable instructions.

Stage your own Peter Pan production
The website includes details on how to register for a licence. You can also get hold of useful resources such as free scripts and backing tracks to ensure your production goes without a hitch.

Fire the imaginations of your pupils
Use World Book Day on March 1 as a great hook to read JM Barrie’s Peter Pan and Geraldine McCaughrean’s sequel Peter Pan in Scarlet to your class. The website contains a wealth of downloadable educational resources which includes Peter Pan and Peter Pan in Scarlet themed lesson plans.

Every pupil who participates in Peter Pan Week will become a Peter Pan League member and receive a special pin badge to say thank you on behalf of the children and families at Great Ormond Street Hospital. Schools will also receive a special certificate.
