Our year 5 and 6 pupils are gearing up for their performance of Hamlet at the Drill Hall in November. The rehearsals are well underway and the children are really excited to be performing in a professional theatre. It would be wonderful if as many of you as possible could come and watch to show your support, even if your child is not performing.
