Years 5 and 6: The Tempest

8 March 2017

Dear Parents/Carers

The Tempest: Thursday 23 March 2017

As you will know, your child is taking part in a Year 5 and Year 6 performance of The Tempest by William Shakespeare. The performances will take place on Thursday 23 March 6pm in the Multi-purpose Hall (entrance on Liverpool Road). Tickets priced at £2.00 each, will be on sale in the primary office from Friday 10 March.

The children will need to be in costume and we need your support. Please could you provide the following:

All children should wear dark blue or black leggings or black tracksuit bottoms. A few children have also been asked to bring an additional item; your child will know if they need something.

Please arrange for your child to bring their costume to the Primary department on Monday 13 March in a labelled carrier bag.

Costumes make a huge difference to the visual element of a performance and therefore your support in providing these is greatly appreciated.

Also your child will need to return to the Academy (Liverpool Road entrance) by 5.30pm on Thursday 23 March.

Taking part in a production of this kind is a fantastic opportunity for the children and an experience that they are likely to remember for a long time so again your support in ensuring that your child returns to the Academy promptly will be very much appreciated.

If you are unable to stay for the evening performance, we anticipate that it will end at approximately 7.00pm.

Thank you very much

Ruth Luzmore
Primary School Headteacher
