Christmas Fun

We’ve reached the end of term and it’s been so busy that I haven’t had a chance to blog! Please enjoy a selection of photos from our Christmas activities. I have included a range of photos: Christmas parties, a visit from Santa, Christmas shopping, Christmas dinner, our KS1 Christmas show, our school trip to the pantomime and posting our letters to Santa. It’s been a whirlwind the last few weeks, but thoroughly enjoyable. I was particularly proud of the children’s confident and outstanding performances both singing, speaking and acting in our Christmas show (Ralph the Reindeer) and playing the ocarinas and hand bells at carols at the gate. Have a lovely break everyone, and I’ll look forward to seeing you all in 2020. Merry Christmas!

Our First Dress Rehearsal

It was with great excitement that Years 1 and 2 tried on their costumes for their first dress rehearsal today. We have been working hard for the last few weeks learning lines, songs and practising dances.

We just wanted to share how cute we look in our outfits! We can’t wait to see you at our shows next week. 🙂

 

 

A Visit to the Abbey to see Year 10’s Alice in Wonderland Show

Years 2, 3 and 4 were invited to the Abbey today to see Year 10’s performance of Alice in Wonderland. We arrived and were ushered into the Performing Arts Centre ready for the show. We were particularly impressed to discover that the students had put the whole show together all by themselves! The cast all worked hard to entertain and involve their young audience. The children were in fits of giggles watching the antics of Twiddle Dee and Twiddle Dum and Alice getting frustrated at the Mad Hatter’s Tea Party. Year 10 handed out yummy chocolate muffins and squash at their end of their show and let the children play with the masks that they had made. It was actually Seb’s (The Mad Hatter’s) birthday, so we sang him a special rendition of Happy Birthday at the end. The children have decided to write thank you letters to Year 10 because they are hoping that, when the students put on another show, they will be invited again!

Who was your favourite character, Year 2? What was your favourite part?
