“The Hearing Impaired (HI) students went on a trip to see Matilda. It was at the Novello Theatre, Covent Gardens. We took part in a workshop with Handprint. We were role playing and then we learnt a signed song "When I grow up".

We went backstage and saw the set, costumes and props. The set was amazing, all different colours. We then signed our song to the cast. After lunch we watched the performance. It was really interesting. My favourite part was in P.E. when Miss Trunchbull somersaulted and I thought she was going to fall. I liked Miss Trunchbull best. When the performance finished, I wished there was more.”
