Every year SKIPS organises two school productions; one each for KS1 and KS2 respectively. We are pleased to present to you our most recent productions from the last and current academic year. Enjoy!
Ralph The Reindeer (December 2017)
The Key Stage 1 production is a celebration of friendship, problem solving and team work. When it's discovered that Rudolph has a cold and isn't well enough to guide Santa's sleigh, his friend Ralph steps in to save the day. Just one problem; Ralph can't actually fly! The message within the play for us is clear; friendship and critical thinking can solve many of life's problems.
Santa's Setbacks (December 2016)
The Key Stage 1 production was about ‘Santa’s Setbacks’ from Santa, Mrs Santa, elves, reindeer, Christmas trees and snowman, we all had a part to play in helping Santa. All characters were in the North Pole, just days before Christmas as Santa as his team busily prepare for the big day. With everyone working together, what could possibly go wrong?
Ali Baba and the Bongo Bandits (April 2018)
This year’s production was an Arabian treat full of colourful characters and lots of laughs; a perfect match for us in SKIPS! The story was set in the ancient city of Baghdad which had been thrown into chaos with a bazaar that had been overrun by ruthless robbers.
Our heroes, Ali and Humphrey the camel, were perfect examples of triumph over adversity and the power of teamwork to get things done. This was also the example set by the staff and children in their preparations for the performance. I congratulate them on their hard work, determination and imagination; their talents and skills never cease to amaze!
With some excellent casting and task allocation; it was a perfect opportunity for SKIPS children to shine and demonstrate their skills. It was definitely a SKIPS show to remember and be very proud of.
Pirates of the Curry Bean (May 2017)
All of our wonderfully talented KS2 children were involved in this production whether in the cast, choir, dancing or backstage and they all contributed their creativity and skills to produce props and scenery.
This story is full of laughter, music and ‘piratical style’. We followed the Periwinkle family on their quest for treasure and adventure and met the infamous Captain Redbeard and his pungent crew of pirates. The show ended on the mysterious island of Lumbago with sparkling songs and dazzling dancers!
