English, Drama and Music Showcase: Oliver Twist!

English, Drama and Music Showcase: Oliver Twist!

‘Twas the week before Christmas, and all through the school,

Every child was ready, keeping their cool;

They were to perform, to over two hundred guests,

Songs and scenes from Oliver – and all gave their best.

Tuesday 16th December saw every child in Year 7 perform wonderfully in our first Christmas Celebration Evening. The audience was entertained by a variety of Oliver’s, Fagin’s and Artful Dodgers. The pupils had made great progress in Drama lessons, responded positively to feedback from their classmates and learned their lines and gestures ready for the big day. Up on the stage, in the glare of the lights, the pupils’ efforts in class paid off: the audience left feeling proud of the children’s achievements. One audience member even asked me – ‘Please, Sir, I want some more’.
