Year Six pupils from Northwold staged a Wild West showdown to celebrate their last few days at Norman CE Primary School.

The 11-year-old boys and girls were joined by their Year Five classmates in a performance of The Lemonade Kid. The musical told the tale of what happened when gun-toting baddie One-Eyed Jack came up against the peace-loving Lemonade Kid, who preferred a fizzy drink in his holster to a pistol.

The pupils, who were all from New York Class, made their own set, with a saloon, grocery store and Wanted posters; they were directed by class teacher Sue White, with the help of teaching assistants Krista Raven and Tracy Smith.

Mrs White said:“The children have worked incredibly hard during the last few weeks to achieve the highest possible outcome.

“Awe-inspiring action, astounding soloists along with a large dose of team-spirit resulted in a show-stopping performance.

“I cannot express just how proud I feel of every single child. I will be very sad to say good-bye to Year Six at the end of term, but hope that their memories of their final year will be with them for years to come.”

Headteacher Carole Reich said: “Not only are they excellent thespians, but academically they have performed extremely well in their Key Stage Two SATs. They have run our school council with thoughtfulness and organisation and set an excellent example to younger children.”
