Enrichment Day: 'Dick Whittington'

25th November 2016

Our enrichment day, exploring the story and pantomime, Dick Whittington, was a fun, fantastic affair enjoyed by pupils and staff alike. All the hard work, planning and preparation made such a great day for all.

Particular highlights were:

  • Jo Cotton's choreography for all the children, to ‘Love Cats’ by the Cure.
  • ‘What’s new pussycat?’ by Tom Jones
  • The freeze-frames of part of the Dick Whittington story
  • A spectacular infestation of clay mice of all shapes and sizes.
  • 3D cats in all their glory lording it over their classroom!
  • Last but definitely not least, the end result of the Big Art Project, depicting various London landscapes and to be featured next week in the Dick Whittington Panto at Great Whelnetham Community Centre.
  • Our day was made complete when Barry Budgen, Hannah Cox, Val Petch and Trevor Bishop from the cast, joined the children for our end of day assembly, in full costume. 


Our Particular Thanks
Jo Cotton and the Great Whelnetham Players for their support. We look forwarding to supporting them in return at their production next week.

Memories of our special day have been created in the rolling loop of photos in the main office—be sure to take a look!

Future Enrichment Days

Again a big thank you to parents who have made their £10 start of year donation to support such Enrichment Days. If you are unable to contribute £10 in one lump sum, donations of lesser amounts throughout the year would be gratefully received. 

Future Enrichment Days are planned next year so watch this space!
