Clonter Opera Theatre

On Tuesday Year 4 visited Clonter Opera Theatre in Congleton.  The day was broken down into 3 workshops, showing different aspects of the theatre.

The first workshop was to 'Design a mini stage' to which we had to design and make 4 scenes for our stage; Island of dreams, space olympics, witches spooky forest and the wild wild west.  The lighting was chosen that best suited our scene, and their was a competition for the best.

The second workshop was a singing workshop. We were shown how to warm-up our faces and voices before we started to sing.  Their are four types of theatre music, musicals, opera, opereta and aria.  We finished off with a song from Hanzel and Gretel.

The third workshop was a variety show.  This started with a musical song 'There's no business like show business ', then we listened to an opera and the final piece was a group who sang an aria.

We had a great experience at the Clonter Opera Theatre.


Welcome to Reception!

We would like to say a big welcome to our new Reception children.  They have settled in really well and have been very busy learning all their new routines.  It was lovely that they joined the rest of the school in their first whole school assembly and they stood up and told everybody their names.

Meeting our chicken!
