What a joy to be able to perform live to parents and carers again! In a COVID safe environment, one parent or carer attended, wearing masks and sitting at a socially safe distance in the school hall to watch a fabulous, funny and fact-filled forty-five minutes. On Tuesday 23rd November, the children of Year 4 entertained and wowed their audience in their class performance of Veni, Vidi, Vici . The bright lights of the stage shone on the children as they performed songs and acted out scenes depicting life during the Ancient Roman Empire as experienced by four school children embarking on a time-travelling adventure. While on their travels back in time, they met Senators, slaves, slave traders, Roman Soldiers, citizens relaxing in the bath houses and, even more surprisingly, Paddy McGuinness and Ant and Dec (not what you would expect in Ancient Rome!) The audience loved joining in the actions of ‘Just Like A Roman’, (even at the young age of 2 years old), as the children sang of life as a member of the Empire and many other well-known songs. Through this creative and entertaining performance, the children showed their in-depth learning about the legacy of the Romans and how life has changed as a result, especially how they are now able to enjoy their rights from the UNCRC unlike the children from 2000 years ago.
Thanks must always go to parents and teachers, as the costumes looked dazzling and the children performed their lines and songs with confidence and flair. Well done Year 4, you were ALL superstars!
