Class 4 trip to see Matilda the Musical

10th October 2013

Class 4 visited the Cambridge Theatre in London's West End on Wednesday 9th October 2013. The children enjoyed a scenic coach ride into London. They saw sights such as the Olympic Park, London Bridge, Millennium Wheel, Big Ben, the Shard and many more exciting attractions. Following this they visited the West End, where they queued up outside the theatre with an exciting buzz and anticipation about what the show was going to be like. The children thoroughly enjoyed the musical and the whole theatre experience. They were amazed by the lighting, sound, scenery, music and actors. It gave the children chance to consolidate their learning about Matilda from their Literacy lessons and compare the three different ways (film, book, theatre) the story has been represented. The children all agreed that they would definitely recommend a trip to the London show -Matilda!
