THE ‘full cast’ of Ilfracombe Junior School has taken to the stage at the Landmark Theatre for an imaginative and creative performance.

Lighting up Learning saw almost every pupil – some 470 in all – take part in a production to showcase all of the very best in music and performance at the school.

It is the third performance of the whole school at the theatre and the audiences at two very different shows were trearted to unusual fairy tales with a modern twist, robot invasions and Iron Man compositions, plus ‘Horrible Histories’ about the Romans and feasting at a ‘Roman Come Dine With Me’, as well as some inspiring musical and dramatic pieces about the plight of the rainforests.

“Music is at the heart of everything we do at our school,” said teacher Maggie Foster.

“We offer two performances – one for Years 3 and 4, and another for Years 5 and 6, as both are completely sold out to parents and members of our wider community. There is such a buzz of excitement right across the whole school as the day for performing gets nearer.”

Ron Ley of One Ilfracombe said the occasion had been ‘fantastic’: “I have never seen learning undertaken in such an imaginative way before. The children performed with confidence and commitment sprinkled with humour all adding to the professionalism of the event.”

Rosie, a Year 6 pupil added “I loved hearing all of the parents clapping and cheering for us!” and Max from Year 4 said, “my magic moment was singing The Friendly Robot all together.”
