A massive thank you to all the parents and children in year three this academic year. You have shown amazing support for each other and to the school and we cannot thank you enough. We have thoroughly enjoyed teaching all the children and wish them every success as they continue their development into year four. We hope you have a safe but enjoyable summer!
What does my child need to wear for their class scene in the whole school play?
As you are aware, your child has been rehearsing their lines for their class scene in the whole school play ‘Shakespeare Rocks’. This post is to inform you of the clothing that your child could wear for their class scene.
Class 7 – this class are builders who are just about to finish off building the Globe theatre. So both boys and girls could wear trousers/shorts with braces, a shirt/plain t-shirt (possibly made dirty) and a flat cap (optional). A plastic builder’s hat is an option too. If your child/children have any plastic pretend tools that they could use to act with in their scene, this would be helpful.
Class 8 – this class are theatre goers who have been waiting to get inside the newly built theatre to see Shakespeare’s play. Boys are likely to be wearing smart trousers (school trousers would be perfect), shirt, tie/bow tie (optional) and jacket (optional). Girls could wear a dress with a cardigan or shawl. If any girls have a bridesmaid dress or a suitable party style dress this would also work in this scene.
If you think you may have something that could be used in either of the above scenes please let me know and I will keep whatever items are brought into school safe. Also, if you are unable to provide your child/children with a costume please inform their class teacher who will feed back to me (Miss Huntington) and I will do my best to arrange a costume for your child.
Many thanks for all your support in the preparation for our whole school play.
In year 3 we have been planning a story and have started to write our mystery stories. We have based our writing on a text we have been reading called 'Smash and Grab' - a story about some items that were stolen from a museum and then discovered in a beehive!
We look forward to sharing some of our stories with you in the next two weeks.
