Fun-filled week for Colburn Primary School pupils

Colburn Primary School ended the autumn term with a fun-filled week of Christmas activities.

As well as a traditional nativity performed by year one pupils, a foundation stage Christmas singalong and a year two Christmas Around the World assembly, the school has also put on a production called Poptastic.

The children in years three to six took on roles in the X-Factor-style musical, which was a sell-out over two evenings.

Debbie Nicholas, acting headteacher, said: “All children in key stage two were given the opportunity to take part in our disco-themed production; the on-stage cast of singers, dancers and actors were supported by the enthusiastic school orchestra and a very capable stage crew.

“I was delighted that our whole school community was involved in so many lovely Christmas activities.”

Chloe said:  “I loved being in the Poptastic production because it was fun and educational. I was able to include some of my own ideas into the script.”

Jasmine added: “I enjoyed learning all the different dances and performing for my friends and family.”

Abbey said: “I will miss being in Colburn School productions when I move to secondary school next year; I have been in every play since year one.

“My great nanna travelled all the way from Dover to watch me and my sister in Poptastic.”
