Music Extravaganza at the King’s Hall

On Wednesday evening we held our annual Music Extravaganza at the King’s Hall.

This year’s title was ‘Santa on Tour’ and the story unfolded with music, drama and dance inspired from different countries of the world.

The King’s Hall was full to bursting with children and families all enjoying the performances of so many children including our Orchestra, Rock School, Jazz band, Samba band, Year 6 band and our amazing choir. Our Scottish Country Dancers, and individual dance performances brought another level to the event through their routines which involved some complicated moves and a lot of energy! Woven through, our Drama club children kept the audience entertained with their ‘Elf’ jokes – who knew there were so many?!

Christmas Jumper Day

Today we supported Christmas Jumper Day. Every child wore a festive jumper to school and in return gave a donation to Save the Children. There was a real Christmassy atmosphere in school and some amazing jumpers with lights, bells tunes playing. We are delighted to be able to announce that we raised £360.

Peter Pan at The Marlowe Theatre

Last night we took 140 of our children to the pantomime to see Peter Pan at The Marlowe Theatre. There was huge excitement amongst them, made even better by Peter Pan making his zip wire entrance right where our children were sitting. Yet another great performance by the cast including Shaun Williamson and Wendi Peters had our children completely captivated. There was lots of laughter had by all, including the adults! Two of our children even got to meet Peter Pan himself which made their night!

As adults it was wonderful to see the children participating and having so much fun, with us often watching them rather than the pantomime itself! 

Looking forward to Cinderella next year.
