Alice in Middleton

Each week at Middleton Primary School, all classes sign up to an enrichment activity which takes place every Friday for an hour. This is usually a fun group activity such as archery, ten pin bowling or tabletop games.

As a special treat the Takeaway Theatre group performed Alice in Wonderland as an enrichment activity for Year One, Two and Three. The children really enjoyed playing their part and got involved in all the traditional pantomime phrases.

For some of the children it was their first experience of a pantomime. A Year One child said:

“It was all so funny. The rabbit and the Queen of Hearts were my favourite characters and I loved shouting ‘he’s behind you.”

There was lots of other great feedback from the children, and the adults enjoyed it too!
