Just like the title says, rehearsals are underway for the Year 6 production of The Rocky Monster Show (and not The Rocky Horror Show) by Malcolm Sircom! Everyone’s roles have been assigned to, scientists, monsters etc, scripts handed out and practices every Monday, Tuesday (for singing) and Thursday. We also have a trusty friend to help with delivering our lines: Charlie! Mr Hughes has devised something called ‘Talk to Charlie’ and it helps us with delivering our lines. And for the acting… all you need to know is that we almost die of laughter from Mr Hughes’ performances! Anyway, despite the rehearsals we still have to do schoolwork, but I won’t tell you about that. Moving to song rehearsals (which are taken by Mrs Hughes), we know how the songs go and really enjoy a song called ‘The Flash Crash’, an intake on The Rocky Horror Show’s ‘The Time Warp’. Once you hear it, you can’t get it out of your head! We have also made some true rock n roll dance moves to go with certain songs. Also, Mrs Saunders has been helping us with producing our lines with expression (mainly with the narrators as they help tell the story). Everyone is working hard to produce the best production we can do and it will all be written down here in this blog. So, if you want to read up on how the production is going, feel free to read up here! Hope you enjoy!
We had a very successful dress rehearsal today to the rest of the school! Read one of our blurbs below to have a sneaky peek into our final performances tomorrow and Wednesday.
Dodgy foxes are sneaking around…but what are they up to? Hare and Co. have a very crooked smile with a lot of whinging customers who have no home and no clothes. There are some very, very sticky secrets around the valley but what will happen on race day and who will end up being the hero?

We only have a few hours left in which to perfect our production, ‘Zoom!’, which is going to be performed to the rest of the school, our friends and family next week! We can’t wait to put our costumes on and share all of our hard work from this half term.
Amongst other preparations, we have also been creating our own ticket designs and programme covers along with character profiles and paintings that capture our character’s personality, all of which we are looking forward to sharing during our parent’s open afternoon later next week. Be prepared for a wonderful performance full of singing, dancing and super acting!
Lights, camera, action! Last night year 4 performed a spectacular performance of the play Splash in fact we all agree it was splashtastic!
The school hall was full of excited family and friends. The lights dimmed and year 4 entered with their colourful costumes and painted faces. The show was a great success and our singing had all the audience jigging in their seats, even our terrible jokes made people laugh!
This was the performance of our lives – we had great fun.

This year KS1 are presenting the Russian story of ‘Babushka’ as their Christmas production.
Houseproud Babushka is so busy sweeping away cobwebs, spiders, flies and mice that she nearly misses the birth of baby Jesus. Luckily she eventually decides to go to the stable meeting lots of travellers on the way handing out gifts. The twist in the tale is what she finds in the stable!
Make sure you have ordered your tickets – we are practising hard and singing well- don’t miss it on December 6th and 7th!
