Year 6 Rehearsals
Rehearsals for year 6 for Bugsy will begin on Monday 18th April from 3:30-4:30. Year 6 are also invited to join the choir for singing rehearsals from Thursday 21st April from 3:30-4:30.
We would like all children to attend all the rehearsals however we understand that this is a busy term for year 6 with their approaching SATs. Therefore we would like to request that all children can attend Monday rehearsals but join the choir for the Thursday rehearsals after the SATs are over. If they are happy to attend both before this time then we would be very happy to see them.
We are pleased to announce that the school production this year will be 'Bugsy' taking place on Wednesday 13th, Thursday 14th and Friday 15th July.
All children from years 1 to 6 will be invited to take part in the production. Years 1 and 2 are invited to take part in a dance on stage. Years 3, 4 and 5 are invited to join the choir. The main parts are led by year 6 on stage.

Oliver Twist, or The Parish Boy's Progress, is the second novel by Charles Dickens, and was first published as a serial between 1837–9. The story is of the orphan Oliver Twist, who starts his life in a workhouse and is then apprenticed with an undertaker. He escapes from there and travels to London where he meets the Artful Dodger, a member of a gang of juvenile pickpockets, which is led by the elderly criminal Fagin.
In Oliver Twist, Dickens mixes grim realism with merciless satire to describe the effects of industrialism on 19th-century England and to criticise the harsh new Poor Laws. Oliver, an innocent child, is trapped in a world where his only options seem to be the workhouse, Fagin's gang, a prison, or an early grave. From this unpromising industrial/institutional setting, however, a fairy tale also emerges. In the midst of corruption and degradation, the essentially passive Oliver remains pure-hearted; he steers away from evil when those around him give in to it, and in proper fairy-tale fashion, he eventually receives his reward – leaving for a peaceful life in the country, surrounded by kind friends. On the way to this happy ending, Dickens explores the kind of life an outcast, orphan boy could expect to lead in 1830s London.
