Not long to go now, before the end of the School year. Warm weather and bright sunshine is starting to flood our classrooms and as summer draws nearer, we can all look forward to the holidays and an opportunity to celebrate by singing and dancing. This is exactly what our youngest students at El Viso have done at the end of May, staging There’s a Sunflower in my supper! This was a fun-packed musical about Daisy the Cow, who dreams about planting a magnificent garden full of flowers, trees, fruit and vegetables.
The stage at the El Viso, British Council Infant School, was full of calves, bees, sunflowers and tradesmen who acted, sang, danced and brought to life all the marvelous characters in this musical performance. There’s a Sunflower in my supper! has a fun script. It tells the story of a day-dreaming cow who decides to sow a mystery seed. With the help of an old man and a very wise owl, Daisy learns what it takes to make a seed grow and flower. To everyone´s surprise, including the grumpy Mr Bull, instead of rich pasture to eat, what they get are beautiful sunflowers.
The children at el Viso, between the ages of 2 and 5 years old, delighted parents and teachers with their sweet, melodic singing and great panache. 7 songs made up the programme for this fun musical which also helps children to learn about plants, wildlife and the environment. The songs were: It's a lovely day!; Don't Mess with Mr. Bull!; Come to my Stall; Little Seeds, Big Seeds; I Can't do it on my own; Wonderful Wildlife; and We Sowed a Seed.
Congratulations to all the students and teachers for providing us with two very entertaining and exciting afternoons!
