Mor­tishire- Smith, Key Stage Two class teacher, said: “The en­tire school, in­clud­ing Bobkins Nurs­ery, was off-timetable for the week and im­mersed them­selves in a host of fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ences of singing, danc­ing, act­ing and all-round mu­sic-mak­ing.

“Each day we en­joyed vis­its from lo­cal per­form­ers, both am­a­teur and pro­fes­sional, and also from Ea­ton Bank sec­ondary school. The chil­dren loved it.

“The chil­dren have also been busy in­ves­ti­gat­ing the science of sound, and com­pos­ing and play­ing their own mu­sic, in­clud­ing mak­ing mu­si­cal in­stru­ments out of ev­ery­thing from bis­cuit tins and cop­per pip­ing to a scale of J2O bot­tles and recorder.”

Key Stage Two also pre­sented their play The Vi­cious Vik­ings, which had been writ­ten and re­hearsed all term with vis­it­ing drama teacher Ms Chloe Plant.

Rachel added: “Our toes are still tap­ping and ears still ring­ing as we end a great sum­mer term.”
