Wow what a term, we are so proud of the children’s achievements! Year 6 have worked incredibly hard on their Shakespeare performance of Macbeth and if there was ever a point in the school year where they wholeheartedly showed the school values of: respect, responsibility, trust and unity, this was it! They encouraged and supported each other when learning lines, making sense of what they wanted to portray to the audience and reminding each other daily about how proud they were of each other. The performance at the Wickham theatre over two night was outstanding and their powerful singing will be remembered for years to come. We wish the children all the best for their bright futures ahead. They will be missed!

Below are some quotes from the children:

Even though I felt worried about being on stage, I have learnt that it doesn’t matter if you are performing to a huge crowd, do it from your heart. (Ramazan)
On stage it was electric! The shyest people were beaming with confidence. In school everyone can be stiff but on stage everyone was free – acting is thrilling!  (Sakariye)
I had fun letting myself go with it. If you trust in yourself you will always do your best. (Lala)
I learnt that when you express yourself and really put yourself out there, you enjoy it more! (Kaylee)
I learnt that I have a clear voice and that acting in front of people isn’t as scary as I thought. I realised that you need to be dramatic – it is acting after all! (Olive)
