Letters of War Performance at the Town Hall
On Monday 26th February, our Year 5 children took part in a series of drama workshops about World War 1. This was a fantastic experience for all of the children. Following on from these workshops, we were invited to be part of a performance, alongside a professional cast, at Congleton Town Hall along with three other Congleton schools.
The performance took place on Wednesday 21st March at 6.30pm.The children walked down to the Town Hall after lunch on the day of the performance. They rehearsed during the afternoon. The children remainder at the Town Hall and parents and friends were invited to join for the performance from 6.00pm, starting at 6.30pm finishing at 8.00pm. There was no charge for tickets, but there was a retiring collection for the RBL.
Children all came in simple costume to indicate the time period... flat cap or braces for the boys worn over their school trousers and shirt, a shawl or pinafore for the girls over a school skirt.
The simple costume really put the children in character and gave them a sense of occasion. The performance was very moving and everyone who took part or attended was very impressed with the children's commitment and performance with the cast.
