Wind in the willows

On Wednesday 2nd November Year 5 visited the Lowry theatre to see the musical performance of 'The Wind in The Willows'. Everybody thoroughly enjoyed the captivating performance of this classic story. The acting, singing, costumes and stage sets were all fantastic. The children were mesmerized by the colourful costumes and sets and loved the humour throughout the musical. We were all delighted to see and the live orchestra which provided the music. We would all highly recommend that everyone should go and see this play.

All the children were so well behaved, it was a delight to take them on such a magical trip,

I would also like to thank the staff and parents who gave up there time to help out, it is very much appreciated.

Treasure Island

The whole school enjoyed a fantastic performance of Treasure Island today. The children were all gripped as the actors thrilled us all with scenes from this classic story.

Afterwards, year 5 and year 6 were lucky to get a behind the scenes insight into how the production company manage to recreate the atmosphere of a real theatre, in the school hall.

They learned all about the job of the travelling production company; four actors play the parts of 15 characters as well as doing the jobs of sound and light technicians. They heard how costume changes and voices play an important role in making the plays really believable for all the school - children and staff alike!
