Our trip to watch ‘Incredible Invadors’ at the Hexagon theatre was truly memorable. Here are some of our best bits…

Jack- When the woman got her tongue cut off and went mmm mmm mmm.

Emily- When the tongue was wiggling in the Saxon man’s hand.

Will- When the Saxons got panicked because the Vikings were coming.

Chloe and Scarlett – Mavis kept saying the names of places in England ending in ‘by’ like Derby and Mavis kept saying Slough.

Max- When the Saxon’s head fell off.

Jo Jo- When the Celts tried to sacrifice Mavis in the wicker man.

Seth- The 3D animations in the background.

Freya and Keira- When Boudicca came on and danced and was crazy.

James- When the Roman General kept attacking different villagers with his hammer.

Olivia- When Mavis kept running from country to country to see where she could be safe.

Phoenix- When the terrifying dog kept scaring the audience.

Annabel- When King Arthur (pretend) came on and explained that he wasn’t real.

Can you add to the list of best bits from the show?

Sycamore class sensationally performed “Precocious Piggy” with great energy and quality acting throughout, it was a real crowd favourite.

The Water Cycle Video

3 Sycamore used their knowledge of the Water Cycle to create a documentary style film today. Their aim was to present their understanding in an engaging and memorable way.

The class would love to know what you think. Take a look and please comment on the film, as well as telling us what you know about the subject of water.
