There Was Nowhere To Go But Up, for Years 5 and 6 as They Perform ‘Mary Poppins’

20 Jun 24

Children from Years 5 and 6 at our Prep School performed Mary Poppins to a packed Seckford Theatre this week, delighting everyone with their song, dance, costumes and performance.

Taking a trip back to 1910 London, the story of the Banks Family and their nanny trouble is told. Mr Banks is losing his patience with his errant children, who keep running away, while Mrs Banks and Cook are desperately trying to keep the Cherry Tree Lane residence in order.

Their (what seems like) constant stream of nannies is stopped in its tracks with the arrival of Mary Poppins who is, of course, practically perfect in every way.

Taking Jane and Michael on a magical journey of discovery across the rooftops of London, Mary Poppins and her good friend Bert the lucky Chimney Sweep, show the children how doing the right thing can be both fun and rewarding. Mr Banks is also rewarded for making the right decision at work and reminded of the importance of family and kite flying!

From statues to honeybees, sweeps to the famous Bird Woman of St Paul’s Cathedral, everyone played their part in this spectacular performance of colour and song. Supported by the wonderful chorus, the catchy numbers reminded the audience that ‘a spoon full of sugar makes the medicine go down’ and that ‘anything can happen if you let it’.

The performances and the children were absolutely supercalifragilisticexpialidocious – congratulations Year 5 and 6 and to all the teachers and parents who helped in a myriad of different ways.
