4 SEANCES

Cyril Dussuchaud (Ac. Limoges) :
"Voici mon petit atelier de 4 séances sur Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone pour des 6èmes/5èmes.
J'ai resseré la thématique au maximum autour des premiers chapitres du livre, avant l'envol pour Diagon Alley pour rester concentré sur les Dursley,
la vie d'Harry chez eux et les personnages nocturnes devant le 4 Privet Drive.
Les deux premières séances se terminent par de courts Escape Games
tandis que les 2 suivantes visent la mise en place d'une saynète jouée et filmée."
