Belated New Year greetings to you all

Dear Parents,


Belated New Year greetings to you all. I hope you’ve all had a great start to 2016. A poignant time for me as I start my final term. But I’m determined to enjoy it and we’ve certainly started with a bang!


As I’m sure you have heard this year’s production is The Wizard of Oz and I have been extremely impressed with the attitude and determination of the children. We have never known such closely fought auditions and since parts have been allocated characters can be found at playtimes excitedly rehearsing together.


Obviously this production will involve the making of many costumes and in order to save our brilliant wardrobe mistress grief we are asking if the parents of the main characters could please provide their own costumes (those children know who they are!) If you do have any problems with this or need some advice please ask myself or Mrs Castle.


As usual a successful production relies on much help behind the scenes. Mrs Young has already started choreographing and Mr Comer leading the singing. We are excited to say that Andy Morrice (Tayler and Jacob’s dad) has volunteered his services to make some of the technical props needed. Martin and Jack are of course roped in. We would love some volunteers to help with costume making, face painting and crowd control!


The Wizard of Oz performances are Wednesday 16th March @1.30 and Thursday 17th March @ 7.00 with a technical rehearsal after school Monday (Chameleons) and a dress rehearsal on Tuesday morning. Tickets are £8.00 (adult) and £5.00 (child). Tickets on sale from No 8 from Friday 5th February.


Meanwhile, there are plenty of other things to look forward to including trips out for all classes (details to come) and of course the usual day to day curriculum requirements.  As always I thank you all for your continued help and support.
