The children at Haddenham Community Infant School put on a stunning show at their annual Summer Concert last week. The whole school performed in the production of "Stella the Starfish," a musical story where Stella loses her family and other characters help her to find them once again.
The talent of the children was astounding with some complicated dances ranging from fast moving streetdance to some more classic dancing with the aid of top hats. These carefully choreographed pieces were put together by Katrina Bright, a local dance teacher, who comes in to the school to work with the children on a regular basis. The children have been working on these dances for the last few weeks.
Not only was the dance of a very high standard but the singing was too. A number of children performed solos throughout the production, which is no mean feat for the 5-7 year olds and they were amazing, demonstrating great confidence whilst they sang to a large audience.
"The children loved performing this musical and I think their achievements speak for themselves — they really shone like the stars that they truly are. The children always perform as a whole school at this time of year and it is a real working across year groups where the children learn from one another in a special way," said Mrs McNeil of the children after the concert.
The school not only perform for the parents of the children within the school but also to other groups within the local community, which the children thoroughly enjoy as do the community of Haddenham.
