Year 6 were lucky enough
to have the fabulous Anthony Glenn visit again, and he helped us put on a
fantastic version of the bard’s immortal play, Romeo and Juliet!
We worked really hard to
warm up and get into role; we had to think about the motivation of the
characters we were playing, and how they might feel and react to different
We also had a talent
show half way through our time with Anthony, so that he could include some of
our skills in the show!
Joel wowed us all with his fabulous piano playing, and
Alex, Sachi and Jessica all sang beautifully (Alex with the support of Rocco,
Reece, Zain and Deshawn), while Ella and Ruby provided percussion for Megan,
Ellie-Mae, Millie and Sachi to sing over.
We had to concentrate
really hard to remember our lines, as we only had few days to prepare for our
performance. First, we showed the rest of the school our version of the play.
Then, after coming back to school in the evening, we dimmed the lights and
showed our parents, family and friends what we are made of!
Year 6 put on an
incredible performance: it was funny, moving, full of fantastic music, and everyone
left on a high! It just goes to show what amazing work we can produce when we
put our minds to it!
Thanks again to Anthony Glenn for working so hard to get us ready (and for the chocolate!), and thank you to all our parents and guardians for your continued support!

A primary school will be celebrating 82 years of schooling before pupils and teachers begin a new chapter in their new school building.
Suttons Primary School, Suttons Lane, Hornchurch, will be moving into a new building due to be completed in October.
But staff are now inviting present and past governors, staff, volunteers and pupils who have been involved with the school over the years to re-visit Suttons on Friday September 30 between 4pm and 7pm.
The evening is to celebrate the end of an era in the current school building, which was built as a temporary school in 1934 just before the end of the war and is due to be demolished in the Spring of 2017.
Old school records, headteacher diaries, roll books, pictures and artefacts will be on display for guests to enjoy but there is still time for people to get any of their old photos or information included.
Refreshments will also be provided during the evening.
