Can you guess which characters these costumes will belong to?

The children were all given their scripts for The Lion King on Monday. They have been working very hard at home to learn their words.

In today's Musical Theatre session we began to focus on the acting of The Lion King play. First of all the scripts for each scene were given out and we got into groups to practise.
After only a short time of practising, each group then performed their scene to the rest of the group. This gave us a good idea of how the finished show will look.
A very busy Tianna and Libby became Timon and Pumba when they joined Faye and Thomas to perform the next act.
Izzie, Martyna and Sophie worked hard together to perform Act 10.
Well done to everyone today. You all worked very hard. When you get your scripts next week, don't forget to keep practising!

Today, the 30 final children came along for their first musical theatre session. Miss Bowkett and Miss McGeary explained that over the next few weeks they would need to work very hard as, at the end of term, they are going to put on a performance of The Lion King.
The session started with a musical warm-up led by Miss McGeary on her keyboard. Some of the children managed to reach some very high notes!
After that, Miss McGeary taught the children the word to the song. This was very tricky as the start of the song is not even in English! We were particularly impressed with the children who volunteered to sing on their own.
Once we were more familiar with the words to the song, we split into two groups. This is where we learned a very difficult skill -harmonising. Harmonising is where each group has to sing different words but still stay in time with everyone else.
The final part of the session involved us beginning to think about what 'The Circle of Life' would look like when performed in the show. All of the characters are animals so the children practised moving around as an animal whilst still singing the song.
Next week we will spend more time thinking about acting out the show.
