School Events 2017-18

Year 4 Shakespeare Festival

For the past six years, our children engage in a curriculum project to immerse them in the work of William Shakespeare and share the experience with other likeminded schools through the Shakespeare Festival.  The body of work culminates in a unique piece of performance art showcased at the Lowry theatre.

In the past we have performed pieces from Romeo & Juliet, King Lear, The Tempest, A Midsummer Nights Dream, Twelfth Night and Macbeth.

This year our Year 4 children performed their unique interpretation of Hamlet.  The evening was filled with excellence as well as giving our children a rich understanding of our cultural heritage.

 

Big Thank you to Friends of Mellor for Organising the Mellor Literature Festival.  

The Festival was held on the 30th June with Adults’ & children’s workshops led by authors, “Poet-tree”, Mellor’s Longest Story, Fancy dress competition (judged by Tracey Corderoy), Book trail, Storytelling tent, Book swap & sale, Craft tent.  Thank you to all who worked so hard to make it happen.
