What would you do if you found a golden ticket wrapped around your favourite chocolate bar?

The children of Year 4 have this week performed Roald Dahl’s classic tale of Charlie and the Chocolate factory, delighting us with the tale of Charlie Bucket who was the lucky finder of the last golden ticket to visit Mr Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory. Amid greedy, spoilt and indulged children our hero of the story showed the true meaning of gratitude as he tours the chocolate factory with his faithful Grandpa Joe. He witnesses unpleasant things happening to the other children until Mr Wonka realises that Charlie is the only boy left and now faces a future filled with exciting chocolate making and never having to starve again!

Year 4 out did themselves this year. The energy and sparkle that the children brought to the stage was simply outstanding. We must remember that these are 8 and 9 year olds, committing themselves to producing a performance of such high standards in just 5 weeks of rehearsals!

Some rather nifty technology and a wonderful vibrant set added to the children’s spectacular performances and has made this year’s lower school production one to remember. 

Special mention must go to Harry Fraser and Susie Tomlinson who from the very start of rehearsals had learnt many many lines and showed commitment in both stage discipline and talent. However every child played their part with 100% commitment.

Well done Year 4 on another successful production!
