  Each child now has their own set of times tables to learn at home each week.

On this day, the children will leave school at the normal time of 3.20p.m and must meet at the Forum at 5.30p.m ready for their technical and dress rehearsals. performance for parents is at 7.30p.m and lasts about an hour. Tickets for this performance are available to purchase from the Forum as from Monday 8th January at £6.50 per ticket. We advise that you buy your tickets as soon as you can, as traditionally they sell out extremely quickly. If you are unable to watch the show, please arrange for your child to be collected no later than 8.30 p.m. on this day.

On the night, there will be a professional film maker filming the performance. It is essential that all parents give consent for their child to be filmed. Please sign the slip (see Spring 1 newsletter) if you consent for your child to be filmed and for the DVD to be available for public sale no later than Friday 9th February. If we have every parent’s consent, then we can have our performance included on the DVD and you can purchase a copy should you like to for £10.

The theme of our dance is BREXIT so for the costumes so we would like all the costumes to be red, white and blue.
