The children in 5H performed a 40-minute Ancient Greek extravaganza today, having mostly written the script themselves. Their performance finished with their own version of the 12 Days of Christmas using re-written lyrics to reference the 12 Labour of Hercules.
Well done to everyone involved in all three shows, especially Mr Hudson.
