Pupils in Years 1 to 6 watched Robin Hood and the Babes in the Wood this afternoon at Nottingham Playhouse.
We really got into the pantomime spirit and chorused “oh no, not the Sheriff of Nottingham” along with the rest of the audience whenever the evil villain’s name was mentioned. We’re glad the current real Sheriff of Nottingham is a former Hollygirt pupil; a former Hollygirt pupil would never behave like the Sheriff in the story of Robin Hood!
At the end of the show, Oscar represented Hollygirt on stage with Robin Hood and Nurse Nelly Noggins!
We were back at intu Victoria Centre today singing Christmas songs to the people of Nottingham. We were in our favourite place, by the tree outside Boots/Next/John Lewis!
The children attracted a large crowd with their singing voices and one lady from the public was enjoying it so much she had a dance with Miss Purchase! Our wish for Christmas is that everybody can find some joy and we hope to have brought that today.
We predict the most spoken sentence last night was “it feels like Christmas now” and we couldn’t agree more! The Carol Service was a delight and it was lovely to see so many parents, family, friends and former pupils in attendance.
Well done to our fabulous readers for spreading the Christmas message as told from various bible verses: Fahad (Year 9), Alex L (Year 8), Oliver A (Year 7), Hollie (Year 11), Lily (Year 10), Jess (Year 11), George (Year 6), Cassian (Year 6) and Gabrielle (Year 6).
