There will also be Side Show Alley with rides, games,show bags and more.

Taking a step back into time gone by, teachers from Dance Kaleidoscope have volunteered to teach some display dances. Today I watched some Year 2s practising a Maypole Dance that they have been learning for weeks. I was amazed at their skill. They are delightful to watch and are eager to show off their abilities - at 11am.

There will be maypole dancing by Year 2 children.

Meanwhile, Year 4/5 are learning some Colonial Dances."Mr Cosgill's Delight" will be performed by the 2 classes and a smaller group will demonstrate their skill with "Zephyrs and Flora". They have picked up the steps and timing remarkably quickly.

Zephyrs and Flora - an English Folk dance will be performed by Year 5s at 2pm

Dancers from Dance Kaleidoscope will perform at midday.

Performers from local group Dance Kaleidoscope will demonstrate Colonial Dance.

Parents of the Theme Team have been busy making doily banners and decorations, crocheted heart necklaces and goodness knows what else. Check out the 'bombed' trees!

See you there!
