Year 3 enjoyed a fantastic morning at All Saints’ Church this week celebrating the story of Joseph and His Amazing Technicolor Dream-coat. The boys were met by members of the parish dressed as characters from the story, before launching into a medley of songs led by the Revd Canon Andrew Shipton. The boys then split into groups to listen to stories, act in short plays and complete craft projects to help them explore the themes of choices, dreams and forgiveness. The morning culminated in a brilliant rendition of Any Dream Will Do and the boys were commended on their enthusiasm, wonderful singing and good manners throughout this thoroughly enjoyable event.
