Welcome to the Primary and Secondary Teaching Resource Packs for Cameron Mackintosh and Disney Theatrical’s co-production of Mary Poppins.
Mary Poppins is an entertaining, magical story about an Edwardian family. It was derived from the Mary Poppins books by PL Travers. The works were greatly influenced by her own experiences of family, people and childhood. The story was made into a film in 1964 before the stage version was created.
The Primary Pack is designed for pupils in the primary age range, 5-11-year-olds, and includes five main activities, plus ideas for assemblies. Each activity is based on the history, music, characters and story of Mary Poppins.
The Secondary Pack is designed for 11 – 16 year old students. It has six main activities, combined with extension and plenary activities and explores the context of the story, musical theatre, characterisation and adaptation. Students will engage in some of the creative processes behind bringing musicals to life on stage.
These inspirational resource packs have been created by teachers for use in the classroom. Each activity comes with learning objectives, instructions for a main lesson and additional ideas, as well as a curriculum connections grid.
Mary Poppins offers a magical insight for your pupils into the enchanting world of everyone’s favourite nanny.
