Riverside Performing Arts visit Hob Moor Road

Riverside Performing Arts visit Hob Moor Road

We had an exciting afternoon at the Hob Moor Road site today!

Riverside Performing Arts company came and performed an exciting Easter production for all of the pupils from Reception to Year 6!

The show was called “Joe’s Amazing Easter Adventure”. It shared an important message about the real meaning of Easter in a funny and interactive way.

All of the children enjoyed the show and came away knowing that there is more to Easter than chocolate eggs!

It was lovely to see all of the year groups together and a wonderful way to bring our Spring Term to an end.

 

 

Year 6!!!

Year 6!!!

Production

This year our production was based on a famous book called ‘The Wind in the Willows’. This required many rehearsals and singing in tune – which led to many lost voices. All day, every day the main characters practiced their extremely long lines for a whole 2 weeks non-stop whilst the rest of us got to make props such as: the wings for the birds, the horse mask, the boat, oars, cars and much more. All our hard work paid off as the production was a HUGE SUCCESS! Thanks to all the parents as we had a full house and we were sold out!

Graduation

So, we finally graduated from primary school and will move onto a new chapter of our lives – secondary school. A lot of preparation went into the graduation ceremony, our performances, teacher speeches, colour co-ordination and special awards. We were lucky enough to have the Lord Mayor of Birmingham come to celebrate with us. The most enjoyable part was learning the carnival dance that Imagineer Productions taught us. Some children made their own costumes whilst others were large wings and beaks to bring the dance alive.

Disco

To bring all the celebrations to an end we enjoyed a gigantic disco party at Bierton Road. It was extremely nice as the year 6 classes from Hobmoor road also came. We were allowed to bring cameras and tablets/iPads in to capture and make special memories with our friends and teachers. Dressed up in our fancy party clothes, we had great fun dancing and playing games with our friends and teachers enjoying the last few days of year 6. We also had took part in a dance off between the Hobmoor and Bierton road sites – that was hilarious – the weirdest dance moves were revealed! All in all it was a great evening that was enjoyed by many.
