20/05/16 Practice script for Tuesday’s audition

Audition for End of year show – TUESDAY, 24th May (break time)      SHOW DATE 29/6/16

Practise this speaking part. It is from a scene where young children are being taught to tell the time. It requires you to use expression and add a touch of drama as you are reading. After you have auditioned you will be asked if you are interested in a main speaking role, or a smaller speaking role – all are important to the success of the show!

Child 5                   (raising a hand) So what does the five mean that the little hand is pointing to?

Teacher              (huffing) That still means five, because the little hand is pointing to it. It’s only when….hang on (checking the file)…. here it is… (reading) ‘The little hand counts the hours, going up in single numbers to twelve. The big hand counts the minutes, of which there are sixty in an hour, and  goes up in fives, as there are twelve fives in sixty.’ See! What’s so difficult? (S/he counts round the numbers on the face in fives, to where the big hand is) Five, ten, fifteen, twenty past. See? Twenty past…(S/he then counts round the numbers on the face again, but as single units to where the little hand is)…one, two, three, four, five. Twenty past five.

Happy New Year!

Welcome back. We hope everyone had a lovely holiday.


As part of our P.E. this term, we are going to be doing a weekly woodland workout. This will mean that we will be outdoors for P.E. every Tuesday (and Wednesday 6th Jan). Could all children please bring in appropriate warm P.E. kit. We will be going out as much as possible and are likely to get a little wet and muddy so an old pair of joggers and trainers would be ideal.

Many thanks.

Our current topic is Conflict and as part of this the children have been finding out about the rights of the child and about refugees. As part of the topic, we have used various video clips and news stories to research the problems faced by refugee families and the decisions they have to make. The children were very keen to work through a task where they had to choose an escape route from Syria. The information in the task is based on the real experiences of refugees. Below is the link to the activity for anyone who would like to try the task again.
