The year 2 children have been working really hard this term to practise and perform their pantomime of ‘Sleeping Beauty.’ The children have been learning lots of lines and practising songs.
The story centres around King Hugo and Queen Maybelline ruling over ‘Bella Vista’ and the birth of their royal baby Princess Tiffany. A curse is put on Tiffany by Wanda the Witch that on her 21st birthday she will prick her finger and fall into a deep sleep from which she will never awake. As Princess Tiffany grows up, she forms a friendship with the palace gardener Alfie Mulcher. The story shares their difficulty in having a friendship as Alfie may not be the person many thought Tiffany should be with. On her birthday Tiffany does indeed fall into a deep sleep, and the only person who can wake her up is Alfie. At the end of the story Princess Tiffany and Alfie are given the space they need to be together.
The children were really excited to share their hard work with the rest of the school and their grown ups, as well as some members of our community.
