Wow, what a long day yesterday was! I’m shattered this morning and I’m sure that some of you are too!

I’ve got to firstly admit that I was absolutely crippled with nerves last night as I sat down at the lighting desk, not just for myself either! After working on this piece with Ellie, myself and Miss Stow since summer last year, It’s become a rather big part of my life and made me proud to even see you lot stood on a stage. And my did you lot pull it out of the bag! Everything we’d talked about, every little minute detail that we’d said needed tweaking was improved then super-improved!

Everyone said it looked fantastic and unfortunately for me, I kept my head down as not to get distracted but I’m sure I’ll be seeing the video at some point!

With all that in mind, there’s A few amazing people within our little family I’d really like to thank and congratulate.

You’ll have seen Tom snapping all day and here’s some of his best!

Very Proud of You


I asked Peri if I could write a post to you and he agreed lol! We must not forget about Percy, he maybe young but he’s still keen to learn what the fuss is all about!!!!

OK so 2 LONG days of rehearsing are now complete and what a transformation has taken place? I would be lying if I said that I went away yesterday confident that things would come together, but I reminded myself of the determination and skill of our fantastic creative choreographers – never under estimate these students.

So day 2 had a slow start with those struggling to get out of bed for a 10am start!! Heaven help you on Rocka D Day when we leave school at that silly time. After a few hours of blood, sweat and NO tears it was like there had been a new Royds clone team had taken the places of the old. You put it together and we filmed you…..a moment you all dreaded especially as we’d said we’d be picking it apart!!! I couldn’t believe the difference that first session this morning had made (I hope you can all move tomorrow).

During lunch we watched it back and then dissected it highlighting some of the main areas for focus and then dispatched you all back out to your rehearsal spaces for a final 40min session…..then a final run through………here are my thoughts:

Wow         Dazzling               Strong            Big Smile (from me)

Has that special something       Power     Drama

Ouch!                  Energy             Fab


All it needs now is that final polish and that sparkle is there. Those who were unable to come to rehearsal have a lot to learn!!

A talented group of students who would think that the ages span 11-17yrs!!! I feel very privileged to work with you all I can’t fault your determination, effort, skills, enthusiasm and friendliness….THANK YOU

Lets all work together to GO FOR IT and show everyone what we’re capable of…..DO YOU BELIEVE???

I DO (if you do then leave a comment)

Enjoy the rest of your Hol you’re all stars

Well Done :)

Periwinkle here 🙂

You thought i’d disappeared? Alas- NO, I have been hiding, and spying on you a ll 🙂

For those of you who dont know me, Im the BOSS, (your little pig mascot)

Well done on today and yesterdays rehearsels.. so proud of you all!

Its finally all coming together and I have to say, the team work so well together!

It is looking absolutely amazing with the potential to be even better than anything we have ever done!

Proud of the choreoraphers- who work so very hard!

Just a few points to make:

Remember FACES! As we said last year, some of you will know, we pestered about you using your faces to tell the story.. do it! Some of you do it so well, so encourage the others too!

Over the next FEW rehearsels, keep chatting to a minimum and focus as much as you can. The more effort that goes in- the better it will be!

LISTEN to the music, the moves are amazing, now we just have to work at getting them in time.


Thats it for now.. I hope to see ALL of you on Monday after school!

Leave a comment below and get everyone to come on here!

Have a good rest of your holidays ,

yours faithfully

Peri xxxxx
