On Wednesday 11th July, the Year 6s put on an outstanding performance at the Rhodes centre of Olivia. Olivia is a girl version of Oliver Twist but with numerous other characters such as Ebenezer Scrooge, Eliza Doolittle, Sherlock Holmes, Doctor Watson, Fagin and the Artful Dodger. The Year 6s have had lots of practice; on Tuesday the 10th they performed a full dress rehearsal to Reception and Year 1. In the morning of Wednesday, the children were dropped off at the Rhodes. Once they were let in, they went to get changed into their fabulous looking costumes and get their props ready. They practised numerous times to get it perfect for the rest of the school. After lunch they got ready and began to get their makeup done by Leanne and her team. The stage makeup looked like everyone had had plastic surgery. After makeup was on, the curtains closed. Behind the curtain everyone was getting tense and stressed and nervous but we all knew that this would be the best performance the school has ever seen. There were a few hiccups but eventually the curtains opened and the show began. The interval quickly came and we were all so excited to get back on stage and carry on performing. Soon the curtains re-opened and the show began again. All of a sudden, the show was over and we were on our way home. Later in the evening, we were back at the Rhodes and getting our stage makeup re-applied. The curtains opened and we did it all over again but this time was better as the parents ACTUALLY laughed at our jokes. Once the show was over, Mrs Hinstridge did her thank yous and praised us for a wonderful show. We were soon surprised when Paul put the football on a big screen for all to see. Most people decided to stay and watch the whole match, others went home but we were disappointed as England did lose but we were very proud of them.
The Year 6 team would like to thank you for all of your fantastic support this year. Your children are amazing and they have done themselves proud this year. We will miss them all, and all the parents too. Have a wonderful summer.
