Dear Year One and Two Parents,
As part of our school’s preparations for Holy Week, the whole school will be gathering at 9am each morning in the hall next week to participate in a short re-enactment of the events of Holy Week.
Year 1S and Year 2K will be performing on Tuesday 27th March at 9am. Parents are most welcome to come along and watch. There are a few different parts that have been allocated across the classes.
Costume ideas for parts as follows:
· Jesus/Disciples/Children washing feet – an old sheet/pillow slip with a piece cut out for the head and arms. An oversized t-shirt would also the trick. Tie a rope/sash around the waist.
· Readers – To stay in school uniform. If your child receives a reading part to practise at home they do not require a costume.
Please feel free to use your own creative licence to modify costumes as you wish. Costumes should be simple and only take 5-10 minutes to put together. We are also happy with something as simple as a head piece, or anything that the children can throw over their uniform to emphasise the era. School uniforms can with be worn under the costume, or be packed into the children’s school bags to change into, following the performance.
Please have the children ready in their costume on the Tuesday morning during gathering time. We will go straight across to the hall to get ready on stage when the bell rings at 8:45am.
Thank you for your support in preparing this special liturgy. If you have any questions, please feel free to email us.
Mrs Amy Sherborne, Mrs Penny King and Mrs Kristy Hunt
