Our Christmas display in the Hall took inspiration from a drawing called 'The North Pole'. We worked hard to construct our houses from cardboard, thinking carefully about where to position the windows and doors and how to fit the roof so there were no gaps! Decorating using white and different shades of blue gave our houses a frosty look, then we added details such as window frames and wreaths.
Year 6 Treachery, Revenge, Magic and Love
Performances went down a storm when children from Year 6 staged their musical production of William Shakespeare’s The Tempest in two performances on Wednesday. Strict COVID-19 rules meant they were unable to present to audiences in the usual manner, instead they presented to the Year 5 Bubble of children in the afternoon and then to school staff socially distanced in the evening. The evening performance was video for all the school community.
Mrs Skelton and Mrs Shillabeer directed the children and the school hall and media suite were transformed into a magnificent magical island.
Solo and group singing parts took place (under COVID-19 rules) in this amazing performance studied. Children studied The Tempest in literacy and designed and made their costumes in design and technology.
It was a spectacular show with some great songs. It was a brilliant way to introduce children to a great Shakespearean tale full of treachery, revenge, magic and love. A performance on this scale creates lasting memories that has inspired Year 6.
