Keys to a magical Prep Production

This week rehearsals start in earnest for the Prep Department’s summer production – The Keymaster by Nick Perrin. The drama focuses on four children who are expecting a very boring history lesson…but instead find themselves transported back in time on a magical journey to learn about the events of 1066, Tudor times, 18th century smugglers, the Industrial Revolution, the Suffragettes and World War 2.  Then the children visit the future….

There is plenty of hard work as well as fun in store in the weeks ahead as pupils learn lines and  songs and work together in dance to bring the story to life.

The photo below shows Year 5 and 6 pupils but all the children have at  least one part to play.  There will be two performances, on  Tuesday  27th and Thursday 29th June at 7.00pm in The Barn so, parents, make a note in your diaries!

First Ballet Club of Term…

Here are our little ballerinas this afternoon enjoying the first Ballet Club session of term!
Ballet Club is free for our Lower Prep girls and boys and runs every Monday afternoon from 3.oopm-3.45pm in the Lower Prep Hall.

Pupils learn basic steps and technique and have fun acting through dance. They also learn all about professional ballet dancers and enjoy lots of dance stories too!

Please wear clothing appropriate for dance – a leotard, tights and a cardigan or leggings/shorts and a t-shirt. Ballet shoes are recommended but not essential.

Joyeuses Pâques from Year 2

Year 2 had a very creative French lesson with Mrs Evers-Jones in the last week of term, colouring and cutting out pretty little Easter baskets and learning the names of many colours and Easter-related words.
