On Tuesday 8th November, Blunderbus visited Years 1 and 2!

They performed a play called “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice!” – a delightful show filled with a blend of music, puppetry and storytelling, as well as an enchanting toy shop filled with all sorts of magical surprises!

The story followed Charlie Hubble, a little boy with a very big dream –  Charlie wants to be a world-class magician! So, he saves up his pocket money to buy The Big Book of Magic for Trainee Magicians.

He sets off to Mr Zacoor’s Toy Shop to buy his spellbook but Mr Zacoor is no ordinary shopkeeper – he’s a real life Sorcerer!

After the play, Garnet, Onyx and Tanzanite class had further workshop with the acting duo, learning all about how to cast their own magical spells!

A great day full of magic and surprises was had by all!
