What an incredible week for Blue Whale Class taking part in our concert performances. They were all amazing in their roles and some children even stepped up with different roles or extra lines when required. We have definitely got some budding actors and performers in the class. On Thursday, Orla, Erinn, Bertie and Samuel represented our class as part of Dovedale Parliament on a trip to Parliament in London. It was a brilliant trip and they represented Dovedale fantastically. Happy Easter everyone and have a well deserved break after a busy half term.
