Our attendance this week was 96.4%
This week our focus has obviously been on our final production at Carr Hill. After several rehearsals both with the Year 5 singers and without, Thursday loomed large and we put on a very successful dress rehearsal, despite a hiccup with the technical side (the music stopped working because the computer overheated!). This meant we were in a very positive frame of mind for our first performance to parents which seemed to suffer from similar gremlins causing the nerves to kick back in. However our final performance on Friday evening was the success that we all deserved. Everyone worked incredibly hard to pull together the most successful of all the performances leaving Mrs Hilton and Miss Footitt with huge smiles on their faces and lots of positive comments from those parents, friends and family members that were in the audience.
We also managed a very successful transition session with Mr Bell where we were using drama to explore some of the conflicts that we are currently facing with our friendship groups and others that we might face in the near future.
This week, our handshakes total was 24 and we managed to win the Class of the Week trophy by one handshake leaving 6MLK very disappointed!
Our Stars of the Week this week are Molly and Georgie for the superb work they did back stage during the performances. All the backstage crew were great, but the two girls knew exactly what needed doing and at what time and were able to perform their tasks (and sort out the boys’ tasks) without needing to be asked by a member of staff. Thank you SO much girls.
Here are two of our role play dramas that we created with Mr Bell. They enabled us to discuss how to resolve the conflicts that we were given. In the one the Mum deals with each boy in turn and we discussed how this was one solution to the problem. In the other, we discussed afterwards how the conflict could have been resolved by the group of four going to have a game of football or something that would include all members of the group.
