Given how important Music and Drama are, as part of the School´s academic programme, being able to stage musical performances with our students is a fundamental tool. It is also a fun way for them to grow in terms of self-confidence and to improve their self-esteem. It helps them to put feelings of shyness to one side and gets them over stage fright. We saw just that in December, with the performance of Musical Penguin Pete by our students in KS1. A very attractive production indeed, which allowed them to show off their talents, treading the boards, from their very first years in Primary.
It´s Christmas time at the South Pole, and all the penguins are opening their presents...Fish, fish and yet more fish! Pete is fed up of getting the same auspicious present every year, so he decides to visit Father Christmas, to tell him so. On his way to the North Pole, he crosses jungles, deserts and scrubland and he meets different groups of animals, who are all very interested in his floppy, flexible feet.
On his trip, as he gets to colder weather, he also finds Jack Frost and his Frostlets, helps several snowmen who have lost their hats and even meets Rudolph y Blitzen who take him, on board Santa´s new sledge, to the end of his journey.
A half hour performance which was divided into five scenes and included 7 songs and several tens of students on the stage. It was certainly a very exciting Musicline production. Musicline are a leading provider of musical works to schools and groups of young people, based in the UK and offering their services to customers around the world.
Congratulations to KS1 on a marvelous production!
