Castle Manor Academy year seven students put on a show to demonstrate the creative and performance skills learned through their new PROUD curriculum.
They performed in front of 200 people in a drama hall transformed into a Roald Dahl experience with giant wire sculptures and a sewn wigwam of his famous characters, such as the BFG, Fantastic Mr Fox and Matilda.
Delicacies from the writer’s Revolting Recipes were made and delivered to guests and grass heads crafted and designed into The Twits brought another table to life.
During the showcase, the children acted out scenes from Matilda (inspired by their visit to the West End show) and their musical and dancing skills through their performance of Revolting Children.
Ele Stoneham, Partnership Director of All-through Curriculum, which crosses primary and secondary phases to improve learning, said: “Our students have worked very hard this term and produced an innovative outcome.
“They have enjoyed looking at learning from a different angle.
“I know they are already looking forward to their Haverhill Heroes project next term, for which the final performance will be a high quality awards ceremony at Haverhill Arts Centre.”
