Pirates of The Curry Bean
Posted: 14th Jul 2015
Our summer production was a HUGE success. The junior children worked so hard and the end show was brilliant.
Pirates of The Curry Bean was a comical adventure following the adventures of the Periwinkle family as the searched for the treasure on the mysterious island of Lumbago. Along the way they were caught up with a band of dodgy pirates and the crew of the Crunchy Frog ran by Captain Cod and the hapless Admiral Hornhonker. Not to mention the comedy duo Scuttle and Slack!
Well done everyone and the positive feedback we have had from parents has been wonderful to hear!

We had lots of different races like three legged, egg and spoon, sack and sprinting. We also had a tug of war which I think was everyones favourite! Well done to all those children who took part and at the end it was very close but purple were the winners and of course the ice cream at the end was very yummy!
Well done everyone-same time next year!
LIONS OF ZULULAND
We recently had a visit from a group of people from Zululand. They visited school for the whole day. They began the day with a wonderful performance of dance, costume, music and songs. We loved it although some of our younger school friends found it rather scary!
We then visited a range of workshops with our visitors. We learned about their culture and how to speak their language. We looked at traditional clothing and weapons and drew them in an art workshop. We learned a traditional song and dance.
At the end of the day we all performed together and showed our parents what we had learned.
Successful Dennis the Menace Takeover !!!
