When you have the anticipation of going to watch a record breaking performance, which has won awards and only returns to Birmingham once every five years, it is quite easy to almost be disappointed on the day – thankfully, this was not the case whatsoever, in fact the War Horse performance exceeded my expectations! The staging was phenomenal; who would have thought life-sized puppets could ignite such emotion? Year 6 were the perfect ambassadors for BCS and were complimented for their behaviour by members of the public, with one even emailing the school to comment on how well behaved the pupils were. Thank you to the very vigilant staff team who ensured the safety of our pupils at all times. If you get the opportunity to watch the performance, based on the Michael Morpurgo book, l would highly recommend it.
