What’s happening in school this week?

Tuesday 3rd March
Arts Across Learning Festival P5, P6 and P7 are going to see ‘Lifeboat’, presented by Catherine Wheels Theatre Company at Seaton Primary School.   Lifeboat is the extraordinary true story of Bess Walder and Beth Cummings. Set in World War II, it is a story of courage, a story of survival and a story of enduring friendship. On Friday 13 September 1940, a ship, The City of Benares, set sail from Liverpool for Canada. On board were 90 evacuees escaping the relentless bombing and dangers of war torn Britain. Four days into the crossing, the ship was torpedoed and sank. Only eleven of the evacuees survived. Two fifteen year old girls, Bess Walder and Beth Cummings, spent 19 terrifying hours in the water on an upturned lifeboat. They willed each other to survive. ‘Lifeboat’ tells their story.

Friday 6th March Arts Across Learning Festival P1 blue and P1 red are going to the Lemon Tree to see the M6 Theatre Company in association with Polka Theatre presentation of ‘Whatever The Weather.’ Life becomes topsy-turvy for the inhabitants of a weather house when the winds of change blow in some new and unfamiliar conditions. In the charming world of a traditional Alpine Weather House, a quaint ornamental barometer has told generation after generation what weather to expect today. When the little woman comes out, it’s going to be sunny! When the little man comes out it’s going to rain! But what happens when the winds of change blow? Blow so hard that everything becomes topsyturvy? How will our lovable pair cope in these new and unfamiliar conditions? It might rain, it might get a bit windy but the show must go on whatever the weather! 

Friday 6th March P7 Bikeability training starts
