Excursion: The Concourse - 78-Storey Treehouse

All of Year 4 were lucky enough to attend the theatre production of 78-Storey Treehouse at The Concourse. Everyone was very well behaved on the public transport and seemed to have a great time watching the performance.

'The legendary Mr Big Shot has arrived to make a Hollywood blockbuster! But when his first step is to fire Andy and replace him with a monkey – well, a gibbon named Mel Gibbon – the battle is on. Will the Treehouse Blockbuster ever get made? Who will win the battle of Andy and Terry? And why are those mysterious spy cows turning up everywhere?' 


Studying before the performance?

Assembly Rehearsal -The Dreadful Menace and The Ski-Jump Scare

For our assembly item we are going to perform The Dreadful Menace (from the Sochi Winter Olympics 2014 Trailer) as well as Allison's response ' The Ski-Jump Scare'.

This is from work we were doing in class about Imagery, visually descriptive or figurative language. Figurative language includes several types of language like personification, hyperbole, simile, metaphor, onomatopoeia, etc.

These recordings are from rehearsal we have had in class. Hopefully we will have them perfect for the assembly.
