The quality of performance is not strained! /

Today’s outstanding performance at The Lamproom Theatre was the culmination of 9 months hard work on our production of ‘The Merchant of Venice’.  Every cast member has given 100% throughout the whole rehearsal process and this was never more evident than this afternoon.  We would like to say a big thank you to all the children, their parents and families for the support they have given us in getting to this point.  We are so proud of what the children have achieved in only 40 hours of rehearsal.  The comments and feedback have been second to none and once again Hoyland Common Primary School has proved that Shakespeare can be accessible to all, irrespective of age and ability.  We are already looking forward to September and starting this journey once again.  We hope to see you all at The Lamproom next year. 

Well done everyone!

What was Solinus about to do?

What did Egeon decide to do?

This afternoon Y1 have been connecting the joints to the bones. Then using papier-mâché to make them strong.

Lots of great discussion describing the materials and techniques used to make our structure.




What have you found difficult?

What could you do to make the task easier?

In Y2 we have been looking at the story of the life of the great leader Moses. We have chosen important landmarks in his story and presented these as freeze frames. Can you remember what each image tells us?
