Yes we are still technically in Summer, but we are sooo looking forward to getting back and getting stuck in!
Term starts back week commencing 10th September and we run until 7th December.
We begin with ‘Bring a Friend Week’! Our good old favourite. This week is an important one for us, it’s very hard for a child to just decide they want to come, or a parent to think ‘how about this?’ – we thrive on word of mouth. So bringing a friend along because, maybe you like to sing your hearts out in the school toilets or perform to your friends in the playground at break (this was very much me by the way), it gives them a chance to see what we are all about. And maybe, if they like it, they will want to join us too, that means you get to see your bestie more than once in a day! Bring a Friend Week will be running on either Monday 10th September or Friday 14th September depending on your class.
After the October half term break (22nd – 26th October) we will be working on our Christmas carols for our singing session in the town on Sunday 16th December. A great way to showcase our young talent in our classes and get everyone in the Christmas spirit.
Class 3’s have a very exciting term ahead as they try something new – Children’s Theatre, with a show written by myself and Lillie, Adventures with Sam: In Outer Space.
You would think this would come naturally, as they are still children themselves, but it is very hard to get children’s theatre just right. How to interact with the audience, keep the energy high the whole time, be playful, fun and very much out of their comfort zones – I’m looking forward to seeing how they get on. They will have full costume, script and set but what they do with it all is their choice, they are the producers, directors and stage managers of the whole show. This will then be performed to our ‘Shorties’ and invited family/friends. Date TBC.
So a busy term ahead, but a heads up we have already booked our concert show date in March!!! Wednesday 20th March at The Lights -eeeek!!
See you soon!!!
