The children will perform the musical with the artists from Charades Theatre company on Wednesday 1st December at 2 pm. They have loved learning the songs and action and are excited about taking part in the performance with James, Robin and Moira from charades doing the lead roles.
As part of their studies of the Victorian era P7K are going to New Lanark to find out even more. New Lanark was built by a far-sighted Victorian a called Robert Owen. Once again the children are having an opportunity to find out first hand about another period of time. A big thank you to Historic Scotland who are subsidising the cost of the trip by paying for the bus.
