On Tuesday 3rd of July, East Hoathly travelled to St Mary’s Hartfield, by coach, to see their Year 5 and 6 class perform their dress rehearsal.
The St Mary’s children presented a brilliant rendition of ‘Wind in the Willows’, complete with beautifully designed scenery, cracking costumes and face paint, stunning solos and even a tap-dancing scene!
A lot of work went into their production and it really showed! We all cheered for the children and the adults who helped.
Lola said “I liked the Rat and the Mole in Wind of the Willows.”
After we watched the production, the children went into the playground and enjoyed a picnic lunch, before the children at St Mary’s came out to play. It was really great seeing the children from the two schools playing and interacting with each other. Since a few children from East Hoathly visited St Mary’s to teach them about 4-Square, it was wonderful to see the St Mary’s children show off the skills they had been practising.
We left St Mary’s in good spirits and look forward to seeing our friends at St Mary’s again! Thank you to all of the parents that helped on the trip!
