Cambo Thespian Performances

At Cambo First School we have a strong, recognised arts ethos across the whole curriculum. Our children really enjoy watching live performances and being involved in performing for the community. The experience gives them bag loads of confidence! We feel that we have potential stars in the making!

2020 has brought many a covid problem and we did talk about doing no Christmas performance… But…. No Christmas performance at Cambo? Staff and children alike felt this was something we just couldn’t let happen! So…in 2020  for our Christmas performance we chose to perform ‘The Honky Tonky Donkey…’ for our very appreciative virtual audience. Excerpts were placed on our Tapestry Learning Platform and we also created a dvd for parents

What a super time we had, strange to perform on the stage in the village hall without an audience but… The costumes were brilliant, the acting, singing and dancing a marvel. Well done everyone! A super time for all.

This Christmas we also designed the front cover of the Church Chimes for December. The children worked on the theme ‘The 12 Days of Christmas! A real team effort across the year groups. And we sang many a time … The 12 days of Christmas!

7 swans swimming
8 maids milking
9 ladies dancing
10 lords leaping
11 pipers piping
12 drummers drumming
And finally… [apart from Christmas Party’s and our end of year service, which is on the Tapestry Platform…

We also created a christmas carol cd for Age Concern. We sold the CDs to the community for £3 each and managed to raise £93 for a very worthy cause.  We then took our singing into the community with Reception to Year 4 singing in bubbles, in Cambo village for everyone. We also made a special visit to Mrs Wallace who was  celebrating her 102nd birthday. Mrs Wallace used to be the secretary at Cambo First School, many year ago. In fact, Dawn our cook, told us that when she started Cambo she can remember Mrs Wallace being in the school office.

Many thanks to Kathy Anderson who played the live music for all events and worked with staff and children on the songs!

Well done everyone!
