Junior School’s smash hit performance of The Iron Man

On Tuesday 27 March, year 4 staged a fabulous original production of The Iron Man at the Westwood Theatre. The auditorium was packed with family and friends and the production was the summation of their study of the classic Ted Hughes book. The girls had been working incredibly hard on a collaborative approach to sculpture, music composition, stock animation and puppetry.

This project was fully embedded into our CONNECT+ Curriculum. It brought together learning across English, Design & Technology, Dance, Music and Computing to illustrate the power of what can be achieved when you work to apply skills, knowledge and understanding across learning. Their dedication paid off as it was a huge success and a highly imaginative production. One parent commented on the cohesiveness of the company of actors all working together: “an exciting venture for my girl to be part of”. What a memorable way to end the term!

The Iron Man sculpture created by the girls will live on in the foyer of the Westwood Theatre as a symbol of what the Sydenham Spirit can achieve.
