Lower Prep thumbs up for The Tiger Who Came to Tea!

Our Lower Prep children have been delivering their verdict on this morning’s performance of The Tiger Who Came to Tea at the Norwich Playhouse:

“It was REALLY fun!” – Lacey (Reception).  “Brilliant!” Charlie and Reno (Year 1).  “Fantastic!” Charlotte (Year 1).   “The tiger made a funny noise when he was eating!” Chloe  (Reception) “Yes – he went nyom nyom!” Samaara (Reception) “It was funny and good!” Lottie (Reception).

“There were songs and we had to sing and do actions…the last one was about scrummy chips and sausages and ice cream. The grownups thought the tiger was real, but it wasn’t!” Jack  (Year 2).

Back in the classroom,  Year 1 set about writing and drawing pictures about their experience, as you can see!
