– The winning class was 4TO.
Our netball team had their first match of the season – away to Nascot Wood Junior School.
20 children from years 5 and 6 enjoyed a trip to the Royal Opera House to see a performance of the ballet, ‘La Fille mal Gardée’.
Antonia and Kaitlin reported:
‘On Thursday the 29th we had 20 tickets for the Royal Opera House. It was an amazing experience and the dancers were so talented.
It was about a forbidden love between two people (Lise and Colas). It was very funny, and there was a real dancing pony!
First we travelled through a chaotic London on three speedy trains – all hyping up for the exciting day ahead.
Those who went were:
- 5C Princess, Maahi, Harry, Ellie, Amelia
- 5W Alfie, Ivy, Hanah, Chloe, Erion
- 6S Antonia, Kaitlin, Rachel, Tyra, Lewis
- 6A Skye, Jasmin, Ayman, Sara, Chloe
We would recommend the Royal Opera House to all.’
