YEAR 6 BLOG – WK 3
This week we have been rehearsing even more for our Lion King. While the cast have been busy at that, people not with a speaking part have been making and painting elephant tusks (pieces of cardboard for the elephant graveyard scene) and cardboard leaves. People have also been making and painting the backdrop for the battle scene where Simba battles Scar to become King.
We have also had Mayan day where we did activities about food, clothing & fashion, stories, pyramids/temples and even face paints (that is why on Thursday your child came home with weird marks on their faces).
In English we have been writing monologues about how Mufasa would’ve felt during the presentation of Simba.
In Maths we have been working out our finances for the Lion King performances, looking at profit margins for snacks we could sell at the interval and how much profit we could make to give to charity once we have paid back our outgoings for all of our props and necessary equipment for the show.

Hello lovely parents and pupils of year 6!
We are sooo excited for our production of ‘The Lion King Junior’ on Monday 18th July at 1.30pm and 6.00pm.
Tickets will be up for grabs soon via the school office. They will be free but you will need to collect them as we will need to keep a tally of how many we have sold. Space in the evening will not be an issue as the venue can hold 700. However, during the day, we will be limited to 300 tickets for parents.
There is no charge for tickets but we would ask for a donation at the end of the show. Any funds raised will help to cover the costs of hiring the venue, costumes, performance rights etc. Any extra we make, we will be donating to a charity of the children’s choice (to be decided in the coming weeks).
We will be providing materials for masks, extra detail on costumes e.g. felt and other materials
All that we ask is if you could supply your children with a suitable ‘base colour’ for their part – long sleeved (if possible) t-shirt and leggings/trousers/joggers.
Giraffe – yellow
Hyena – grey or black
Elephant – grey
Lion – yellow/light brown
Any questions, please send in with your children. Can all costumes please come in NAMED plastic bags which the children can hang on their pegs.
We thank you in advance for all of your help and support with costumes and fund raising. It is looking fab – we suggest you all bring tissues for the performance!!
Thank you again,
The Year 6 team
