‘What would you like to be when you’re grown up?’ This was the question that Reception thought about in relation to their summer concert. Airline pilot, chef, teacher, even refuge collector. From these ideas, staff worked closely to create a lively musical and dancing extravaganza which the children performed with great enthusiasm and commitment.
Unfortunately Mrs Mottram, Mrs Proctor and Mrs Viney-Mitchel had to turn down offers to go and work in the West End after the show, as they had contractual agreements with the school. Thank you to all staff and parents involved with the creation of the costumes and wonderful backdrop.
Everybody neeeds a friend! This was the message of the Year 1 and 2 Summer concert, ‘The Grumps Next Door’. The children sang and danced their way through the fairy dell to entertain their parents and friends. The main rolls of Mr and Mrs Grump were played by Sacha and Scarlette who began the play with much stamping and pouting and ended with smiles and hugs all round. Once again Jay demonstrated his brilliant street dancing and the whole cast enjoyed performing the ‘hand jive’ to ‘Rock Around the Clock’.
The scenery and props, created by Miss Bonnell, Mrs Welsh and Mrs Martin, were beautiful and certainly added to the feeling of being in fairyland. Thanks must also go to Mrs Dimond-Brown who made our delightful fairy costumes.
Once again it was a wonderful production in which each child shone. Well done to all involved!
Year 3 and 4 Summer Concert.
Cinderella (SoleTrader) was written especially for Years three and four by Mrs. Viney-Mitchel. A little unorthodox, we met a fairy who had seen ‘better days’ and was being sued for a spell that went wrong with the frog and the prince, (‘Never could get that tadpole stain out’). The story took an unexpected twist at the end, when the prince, demanding to know who made the shoe, proposes that Cinderella, Buttons, the Fairy Godmother and himself set up a small business together providing ‘The finest shoes in all of London’ which, of course, provides a happy ending.
The ensemble took on some very challenging roles, acted magnificently and sang beautifully. Congratulations and thanks to all staff involved.
