Year 6 are coming towards the close of rehearsals for the prestigious Michael Faraday end of year School Play. The pupils this year will be performing Pirates of the Curry Bean – a play that as the title suggests offers a slight twist on a traditional pirate theme.
We have been rehearsing our performance ever since the pupils returned from the School Journey to Bournemouth. A script was refined during literacy lessons, auditions took place and plenty of professional singing practice was kindly offered by Liz, our Music Teacher at Michael Faraday.
All pupils are now script perfect and showing plenty of confidence when it comes to the singing. Final touches are being made to the production as we start to organise the logistics of transforming the school Ballroom into a pirate ship.
This is a very lively production. We also encourage all pupils to self-assess the progression of their parts and to offer as many new ideas as possible.
Timing is everything – Year 6 are almost ready for the two grand productions of Pirates of the Curry Bean taking place on 22nd July. There will an afternoon and evening performance, allowing the cast to rotate roles, and hopefully also making the show accessible for all Year 6 family and friends. Ticket details will be made available soon.
Break a leg! (…or catch up with some of the rehearsals in the recordings below.)
Elsewhere around Year 6 and we were inspired by our recent trip to the Houses of Parliament to produce an art display showing our work themed around Westminster. Having been given access to areas such as the Robing Room, the Royal Gallery and the Prince’s Chamber, Year 6 wanted to capture the moment in art form. We are proud to present a Houses of Parliament art gallery below.
