Rebecca's World

In 2011 the Junior School Concert was an ambitious project in which many children and Miss Atkinson and Mrs. Warburton worked in their own time to produce a fabulous musical adapted from Terry Nations's novel Rebecca's World.  Rehearsals took place at lunch-time and after school and any child in the Junior School was welcomed to take part. Mr. Ian Faraday who is our choir leader with Miss Atkinson wrote the music for the songs and Mrs. Warburton led the drama group in their acting parts.  The show was of a very high calibre indeed as noted in many positive comments from parents and visitors. The singing was delightful and we saw great talent in the main characters of the play. The backdrop was designed by our Artist in Residence Mrs. Claire Tinker and was built by members of Y6.  The cast made very imaginative use of the setting with the climbing frame providing intriguing routes through the Forbidden Lands and up the rocky passage to find the nest of Splinter Birds in the Needle Rock.  This was a super production greatly enjoyed by the participants and great fun to watch!  We are already looking forward to next summer's show and hope that many Junior School children will want to be involved.
