It has been a joy to start proper rehearsals for ‘Pirates of the Curry Bean’ and the children have filled the Chaplin Theatre with excitement, enthusiasm and wonderful energy.  I am delighted that so many of them have returned with their lines and song lyrics learned and ready to enjoy the direction and choreography. We have just over two weeks to rehearse the whole show, which will be filmed during the last week, with Year 4 and Year 3 in separate bubbles but merged together for the DVD.

I have also enjoyed drama lessons as part of the curriculum with Year 5 on the topic of poetry to complement their English studies; and ‘Fun and Outdoor Drama Games’ as the Year 4 after-school activity, though our first session had to move into the theatre due to high winds.
