P7 Reminder!

A few reminders for P7

  • Pupils in the ‘Alice The Musical’ chorus should bring a white pillow slip to school as soon as possible. P7 – please ask permission before taking one as these are going to be turned into your costume and so will not be usable after the show!
  • All books must be returned to the library as the library is now closed. Please bring into school any books you still have at home.
  • We are on the hunt for ‘animal themed’ onesies! If anyone has one at home could you bring it into school as it might come in handy for the show!


Remember your packed lunch tomorrow – hopefully the weather will be kind to us for our trip to Lauderdale Park!

The story…

Alice’s adventures begin when she follows White Rabbit down a rabbit-hole and falls down, down, down. Alice is an ordinary little girl who lives an ordinary sort of life, until the day she finds herself in the most wonderful world of mad tea parties and remarkable characters like the Mad Hatter, the Duchess, the Cheshire Cat and the Mock Turtle. As everything grows ‘curiouser and curiouser’, Alice is delighted to find that nothing in Wonderland is the least bit ordinary!

Our literacy focus at the moment is based on this very famous story  by Lewis Carroll.  This will provide a valuable opportunity to build upon the textual analysis skills gained during our ‘Holes’ novel study.
