It will also feature a cinema screening of their performance of Bugsy Malone.

All events and the performance have been organised by Year 6 teacher, Miss Le Rose.

“This year has seen some challenges, one of which was missing a residential trip to France due to restrictions,” she said.

“But these children have been amazing and we are so grateful to be able to offer them this camping festival and a movie version of their play as a final goodbye before high school.”
