A Review of Thumbelina by Imogen McVey & Friends!A Review of Thumbelina by Imogen McVey & Friends!
After break time the whole school went into the hall to watch the puppet show version of ‘Thumbelina’. The lady who did the puppet show does shows in ‘Norwich Puppet Theatre’ and she used a wooden figure for Thumbelina and she herself played the old woman who looked after Thumbelina in the story.
The show was brilliant and very funny. My favourite bit was when the mean toad tried to eat Thumbelina!
Gracie-May says: ‘I thought the toad bit was very funny!’
Myrtle says: ‘I thought the show was brilliant and the D.T. was very good’
Tianna says: ‘I liked the actions the lady did’
Noah says: ‘I liked it when she made the voices for all of the characters’
Joey says: ‘I liked how her hands moved for the fish and people’
Mrs Pimlott says: ‘I loved how it was so natural and the simple use of props and sound affects made for a powerful performance’
Lewis says: ‘I liked the bit where the frog took Thumbelina’
Eve says: ‘I liked the music and sounds’
Charlie W says: ‘I liked all of the show’
World Book Day and Mother's Day AssemblyWorld Book Day and Mother's Day Assembly
We celebrated World Book a week late this year due to the adverse weather conditions. There were some wonderful costumes that were all displayed at our Mother's Day Assembly. All of the classes read poems that they had written about their Mums and Grandmas and there was a brilliant rendition of My Mother Smells by Stewart Henderson. There were a few tears in eyes at the back of the hall !
School closedSchool closed
Extreme weather and dangerous road conditions have meant that St Nicks was closed for several days this week. On Wednesday the county awoke to 10-20cm of snow with an amber weather warning in place and by Thursday morning this had frozen leading to drifting and black ice. Police advice on both days was to only travel if absolutely necessary. On Wednesday Mr Oldroyd made the hazardous journey into and back from school from Horstead and reported a few cars abandoned by the side of the road but otherwise a very quiet journey with people obviously taking police advice and staying at home. Traffic reports on BBCRadio Norfolk on Thursday told of roads around North Walsham , Wroxham and Coltishall being impassable or very dangerous.
