Year 6 Leavers' Play

The Wizard of Oz

After a few weeks working tirelessly on rehearsals and memorising their lines, it was time for Year 6 to perform their brilliant version of the Wizard of Oz. The children put on a fantastic performance that would rival any West End show and deservedly earned the round of applause by their parents and guardians, as well as the teachers in attendance.

Well done Year 6!

Enrichment Project Y5

Year 5 have been rehearsing Macbeth over the past few weeks, we were able to explore our delivery of lines, expression and movement for purpose. We also had a special performance of the Three Little Pigs.

The lesson used collaborative learning, helped the children to memorise their lines for the performance and also helped with confidence building.
