Children in Year 6 enjoyed a day of creative writing and art at the UEA – Working as Artists


Monday 26th March – Final preparations are made for ‘Lost in Time’

It has been a very busy day in Year 5 today with a real sense of purpose as all aspects of the opera company make the most of the last few hours before Wednesday’s show.  Artwork, costumes and props are completed; tickets are printed and trimmed; chorus and leads rehearse, and the gym begins an […]


Monday 26th March – Year 4 perform their original circus show

The day finally arrived.  Year 4 performed their original show inspired by the weird and wonderful world of circus to a packed school hall.  Singing, dancing, flags, circus skills and dramatised stories from Norwich’s rich circus past all came together in a wonderful showcase of the children’s hard work and imagination.  They truly worked as […]


Friday 23rd March – Year 3 perform at Norwich Puppet Theatre

The big day has arrived.  After a long day of rehearsals, Year 3 take to the stage to perform their puppet shows. In between the performances we learn circus facts and listen to songs the children have learned specially for the show.  It is a wonderful culmination of all the hard work, creativity and imagination […]


Thursday 22nd March – Y3 perform to children from Nelson Infant School

As the big day approaches our Y3 puppeteers perform their shows for the first time to a special audience of Y2 children from Nelson Infant School. This provided an important opportunity to run through the performances and identify any remaining issues before final rehearsals take place at Norwich Puppet Theatre on Friday.


Thursday 22nd March – Y5 finalise preparations for the opera

There was an incredibly purposeful atmosphere in Y5 today as final preparations were made for next week’s performance of Lost in Time, their original opera inspired by circus.  Enjoy the gallery.


Thursday 22nd March – Y6 run through their skills showcase

Year 6 worked hard this afternoon as they ran through their skills showcase performances ahead of next week’s school showcase.  With Y5 setting up in the gym for their opera, acrobalance and hoops worked side by side in the main hall while jugglers continued work in Speke class.  Enjoy the gallery.


A rather special character hopped into Wensum Junior School recently as part of the GoGo Hares charity art trail planned for Norfolk this summer. The trail will celebrate the Break charity 50th anniversary. We are now the proud owners of a Leveret (baby hare!) and are linking it with our Circus 250 celebrations.   The charity […]


Year 6 – Lost in Translation

Year 6 had an excellent session working with the Lost in Translation tutors today. Firstly we held a question and answer session with the coaches asking them questions prepared earlier in the day. We then split into our groups and continued to develop our routines.


Year 3 Scene making with the puppet theatre

Today, we were joined again by Norwich Puppet Theatre. This time we made our pop up scenery. We had to do careful measuring so that we could score our cardboard in half. Then we had a good think about how we could make our scenes nice and big for our puppets to use. In the […]
