Victorian Showcase

After working very hard on it all term, we decided to perform our Victorian play to the p1-4 class. The children did brilliantly, taking on 2 or 3 parts and changing roles last minute. I was a very proud teacher! Thank you for providing costumes and props. Hopefully we will be able to perform it for the parents at some point, but in the meantime hopefully these photos will provide a wee taste of what it was like.

Guess who is coming for dinner?
