Y2A History of Theatres Walk

Y2A were very excited to take part in a ‘History of Theatres’ walk around South Shields with history and theatre specialists. The children walked from the Pier Pavillion to the Customs House. They completed activities along Ocean Road, King Street and at the Word. The walk ended at the Customs House where the children took part in activities that allowed them to showcase their new knowledge, which was very impressive!

Year 4, 5 and 6 could be forgiven for thinking they were in a Russian cosmodrome yesterday, as our favourite opera company once again paid us a visit. The children were treated to a stunning performance of ‘Laika the Space Dog’ set in Baikonur, Russia. Based upon the true story of the first animal to be launched into orbit, the children were entranced by the sensational operatic voices of the cast, the beautiful melodies of the orchestra, and the emotional rollercoaster of a storyline. They were well prepared to join in with the cast to sing three songs practised during singing lessons with Mr Richardson: ‘Baikon ur’, ‘Mnemonic – Moscow’s Very Expensive Metro Just Seems Useless Now’, and ‘The Thing About Science is This’.
