On Wednesday 28th November Year 3 and 4 children were treated to a comedy performance of A Christmas Carol. On a very wet and dull day, we all walked to The Elms library, where we were greeted by the Booster Cushion Theatre, and treated to a master retelling of the story.
During the performance, various children were asked to assist the storyteller, and for the first time, the story had a Bob and a Cratchet! Other helpers were Belle, Fezziwig and Tiny Tim, all ably played by the children. We even had some arithmetic questions thrown at us and the children easily responded with the right answers – well done Years 3 and 4 – see maths is everywhere!
It was a terrific performance which kept the children engaged from start to finish. As you can see from their faces, they thoroughly enjoyed the performance.
We walked back to school, our moods much brightened, despite the weather.
