At the end of the term, year 6 will be performing the end of year production, The Rocky Monster Show, therefore our topic this term is going to be all about theatre productions and the history of the theatre.  We kick off this fascinating topic with a visit to the Apollo Theatre in Victoria to watch the matinee performance of Wicked.  The remainder of the term, we will be extremely busy rehearsing lines, learning dances and making props, costumes and set backdrops for the performance in July.  We hope to see you there!
