This week, Belted Galloway class will be focussing on the backstage side of putting on a production. We will be constructing staging, and solving the problems of moving our acting into a more restricted space, as well as using art time to design covers for the show programmes and the tickets.
Our acting and singing will move up a notch as we will be setting full scenes, involving lower Key Stage 2 in rehearsals, and moving away from relying on our scripts. Mr Stanhope, Miss Waugh and Mrs Easey have kindly offered to donate their time and their expertise this week so the children will be working with singers and actors.
Year 5 children will have the opportunity to show how much they have improved this year as they will complete reading and maths assessments, the results of which will be used to ensure that the work they receive next year is correctly pitched for them.
In addition to this, we will be having an RSE lesson on puberty, where both year 5 and year 6 pupils will learn about physical and emotional changes that they will go through. These sessions will be run in single-sex groups, with Miss Cale working with the girls and Mr Beech working with the boys.
