After 6 weeks of hard work, rehearsals, learning songs, lines and stage acting our amazing Year 6 children put on their production of Peter Pan this week; dress rehearsal Monday, an afternoon show on Tuesday and the final, evening performance last night. Under the direction of Miss Elliot (with some creative support from Miss Gallagher, Mrs Botelho and Miss Scott), working alongside a team of Mr Stannard, Mr C and Mr Clegg, they soon started to gain confidence in themselves and performing on stage, and the rehearsals gradually improved and the songs and scenes started to gel. It was a lot of hard work, with a few ups and downs throughout, but the children persevered, worked together as a team and remained determined to put on a great show. And what a show it was!
Thanks to all the parents who supported their children in many different ways – we couldn’t have done it without you. This was a brilliant way to bring their time at DBCPS to an end, but they can now relax, enjoy their last few days with us here and then start looking forward to the next step in their lives and join their new schools in September.
Enjoy some of the photos from the shows below. They will be included on the end of year DVDs if you wish to print any of your favourites along with a recording of the production.
