“The Lion King” – A ROARING SUCCESS!

Nursery and Reception classes at Old Ford stepped into the limelight after months of hard work and preparation with music teacher Joe and the foundation stage staff to perform their adaptation of “The Lion King”.
Before a packed hall of parents, carers, governors, Kevin Jones and Amanda Phillips, the children sang, acted and danced with huge confidence and self belief. Everybody was moved by the story and wowed by the beautiful costumes and masks – all handmade by the children.
The show has become such a hit that years 3, 4, 5 and 6 have requested extra performances next half term! Well done everybody.”
See some snippets of the show here:
