PUPILS at Watchfield Primary School were treated to a visit from a fab foursome as part of their Arts Week celebrations.

The youngsters, who have been studying The Beatles for the special week of activity, were treated to an acoustic performance by the cast of Let It Be, which is at the New Theatre Oxford until Saturday.

And they were only too happy to sing along with some of the biggest hits of The Beatles, including Yellow Submarine, Twist And Shout, We Can Work It Out and Here Comes The Sun.

Key Stage two teacher Jody Lewis pleaded and begged to arrange for the Let It Be cast to have a break from their show to join in the exciting week of events.

Foundation Stage Unit teacher Joanna Kinch who has organised Arts Week said: “It is important that the children enjoy the whole curriculum, it is not just about reading and writing. It was absolutely brilliant to have the cast in. The children loved it, we try and help them experience new things like music.

“The children were shocked with the surprise and they all enjoyed it. They were singing to popular songs like Twist and Shout and Yellow Submarine. It was great to watch.

“The cast were brilliant interacting with the children, teaching them about the lighting and setting of the staging was a highlight”.

The children had the chance to ask questions just before the cast left.

Joanna continued: “The cast high fived every pupil as they left the hall and it was great. Parents have made comments about how amazing it was”.

Following on from the afternoon with the cast the children are now recording their over CDs with The Beatle tracks.
