During the last week of term, Year 2, Year 3 and Year 4 at Chambersbury Primary School performed the play Jack and the Beanstalk, for parents to love.
As usual, Middle School performed their play in Spring Term so that Lower School can perform the nativity at Christmas so the Upper School can do their play after their dreadful SATs have finished! This year, Chambersbury have chosen a classic fairy tale Jack and the Beanstalk but with a few twists by changing the characters with some well-known faces from their school. The play was an amazing opportunity for them to build confidence and singing skills for the future.
The children performed the play in the afternoon on 2nd April 2019 and on Wednesday 3rd April 2019. Year 3 made their performances as narrators, market sellers and orphans when some of Year 2 children were narrators but most of them performed a dance. Year 4 had the main roles of Joseph being Jack and the three aunts, Megan, Hannah and Alice being Jack’s terrifying aunts! The children used ordinary songs from the play, including ‘Crunch’, ‘Let There Be Music’ and ‘Crock of Gold’ but some more modern songs such as ‘I Just Got Paid’ and ‘A Million Dreams’.
Michelle, Year 3 pupil, said, “My favourite part was when the bean seller checked his cow-culator.”
The Middle School children hope that the parents enjoyed watching the show as much as they enjoyed making it!
