On Tuesday 29th January, Chestnut Class took us on a journey all the way back to The Stuart Period! The boys performed an amazing class assembly about The Great Fire of London. Through drama, song and dance, they retold the disastrous events that unfolded late that night on Sunday 2nd September 1666, which changed London forever.
Samuel Pepys shared extracts from his famous diary, Thomas Farriner admitted his mistake which took place at his Bakery on Pudding Lane and King Charles II eventually took charge (performing a wonderful solo). A host of Londoners joined us in Orchard Hall, where they were able to share facts and artwork from the Great Fire of London. Some of the boys also performed a beautiful dance using ribbons to show the way in which the great fire grew and spread around London.
The boys were all stars on stage. They delivered their lines confidently and sang as well as danced with great enthusiasm. Their costumes too were wonderful and huge thanks must go to all the parents of Chestnut Class for providing such amazing outfits and supporting the boys in learning their lines.
Well done to all of Chestnut Class - you should be very proud.
I certainly am!
