On Monday 14th March our pupils were treated to an amazing performance titled 'Monday's Child'. This very entertaining play, performed in the round, brought our children's emotions alive with tears of both happiness and sadness for many. The moving story of a little girl and an older friend took the children on a journey through the ups and downs of dementia and how moments of nostalgia and joy can still be had even when the memory begins to fade.

Visit to Live Tales
Pupils from Year 5 and Year 6 visited Live Tales theatre on Newcastle Quayside. Here they met a series of creative practitioners who helped them create their own exciting story using whole class ideas. Whilst the children worked on their story, an illustrator created some pictures to sit alongside their work. Having the opportunity to write freely and create a collaborative story gave pupils greater insight into story writing techniques and how their ideas, however small should be noted and explored. Children demonstrated greater confidence in sharing their character and setting ideas and were very proud of their final story.
New Writing North Drama Club
Pupils from year 5 and 6 have the opportunity to develop they acting skills with the support of Laura (a writer) and Amelia (a poet) from NWN. They meet every week to explore the art of performance and follow the children's interests in developing their confidence through role play, drama games and performance. We look forward to seeing what the children have developed at the end of the project.
