It’s All About Little Alice


This week it’s all been about little Alice in Wonderland.   I’m so proud to share that little T played the little Alice in their school play.  If you’re wondering about why “little” Alice – well you know the part where Alice drinks from a bottle and then shrinks and becomes really small?  That’s little T’s role – the mini Alice!

It wasn’t a speaking role though, the Year 6 girl who played “big Alice” did all the dialogue when she was little and it wasn’t a long part either.


And here’s little Alice going through the small door.


“Now I don’t think it’s funny.  Now – now I shall never go home!”


“Oh eat me.  All right.  But goodness knows what this will do!”


And when she wasn’t little Alice. she played a flower all through out the play, just like the rest of the little ones in reception and year 1.  She was the only one in her class who had a “major” role at the play, never mind if she just played mini-Alice 😉

It may have just been a short role, but my husband and I were so proud of how bravely she stood in front of a big audience.  Yes, this week has all been about Alice.

We were really impressed with all the children, from the little ones to the big ones.  It was a very well rehearsed play.  Well done to the teachers of little T’s school.  It may just be a small village school, but they definitely know how to entertain.


In other news, T’s last day of school is on Wednesday.  Somehow everyone thought it was going to be today.  Turns out, we were all wrong.  Three more days to go for us and the summer holiday begins!

When is your child’s last day of school?

Or is there a particular time when you really feel that the summer holiday has begun?

Do share.

  1. Aaaw that’s such a lovely school show! I love when kids do a performance, they are so cute and natural about it haha xx

    • You’re so right about the natural bit, the kids at one point were shouting the song, and it was so, so, cute. Made it more endearing 😉

    • It’s a bit manic now at the moment, isn’t it? Can’t wait for Wednesday 🙂

    • Flying off to Lanzarote sounds lovely! Wish were going somewhere nice too. x

  2. Aww well done she looks great. My little one isn’t school age but I think in our local area the kids break up next week sometime.

  3. Ah, well done little T! Sounds like a lovely performance. How funny that you all thought they were breaking up today, good job you realised! We’ve got another week here, and I am counting it down! Thanks for sharing with #WotW x

    • Thanks. It was sort of a “major-little” role if you know what I mean 😉 You’ll be watching school plays soon!

  6. This is so lovely to read. What an amazing thing for her to do! It’s brilliant that the school put on a play with everyone from Reception through to Year 6!
    I’ve got three kids at three different schools, so one finished yesterday, one finishes next Tuesday and the other one finishes next Thursday!
    Thanks very much for linking with Loud ‘n’ Proud.

    • Yes, it’s a lovely small village school. When there are school activities, all the children are included 🙂 The headmaster is superb!

  7. Awww that’s so sweet. What a cute little role to play. The play sounds like it was really cute. It must be so strange seeing your little one up on stage performing. I can’t wait for those days x
