    THEMES

    BALLARD SCHOOL, New Milton, Hampshire
    "Different"

      If something is different, big and strange, it's easy to run, be afraid. The tricky thing is to look again and think about being its friend. When we are told it doesn't look right, it is dangerous, causes a fright, we believe - and maybe we shouldn't, because the truth is often hidden. Look again and see with your eyes, not those of the red top lies.

    BERRYWOOD PRIMARY SCHOOL, Southampton, Hampshire
    "Fat Sam's Grand Slam"

      Let's take you back in time,
      To an era long ago.
      1930s America,
      Prohibition, don't you know?

      For fun and flapper girls,
      Fat Sam's was the place to be.
      The music was exciting,
      It was a hive of activity.

      The cast are dressed and poised,
      We're almost ready to go.
      Bring on the lights and scenery,
      Welcome to our show!

    DOWNSIDE MIDDLE SCHOOL, Newport, Isle of Wight
    "The Elves and The Shoemaker"

      We live in a big world: everyone is busy and rushing around. Few people pause to look at those who are struggling: even fewer stop to help. Kindness can come from the smallest of people and when you least expect it, so any kindness should be recognised. The act of giving has its own rewards.

    FOREST PARK PRIMARY SCHOOL, Southampton, Hampshire
    "The Little Yellow Fish"

      Come with us on a journey as we follow the little yellow fish and her friends through the excitement and dangers of a day in the deep blue sea.

    FOUNDRY LANE PRIMARY SCHOOL, Southampton, Hampshire
    "Strength in Diversity"

      Our school consists of children from different backgrounds, different countries and different cultures. We are all special in our own way and we are going to celebrate our individuality. When we do not work together we can crumble and fall. We want to show you that we are at our strongest when we work together - strong like a brick wall.

    HALTERWORTH PRIMARY SCHOOL, Romsey, Southampton
    "Shackleton in Antarctica"

      The Antarctic is a colds, desolate and inhospitable place. Shackleton and his ill-fated crew battled through ice, rowed 800 miles through the world's most treacherous oceans in search of rescue after their ship "The Endurance" got trapped in ice and was crushed. Witnessed only by wandering albatrosses, penguins and whales, this is their story of epic courage and survival.

    LOVE LANE COMMUNITY PRIMARY SCHOOL, Cowes, Isle of Wight
    "Smugglers See The Wight Light"

      The island's shores have been used for smuggling for many years. One night, a ship laden with wine was wrecked. Smugglers rowed out to the stricken vessel and stole away barrels, burying them in the churchyard. However, on finding that the wine belonged to the church, they saw the light and built a lighthouse to ensure the safe passage of ships.

    ST. SAVIOUR'S CATHOLIC PRIMARY SCHOOL, Totland, Isle of Wight
    "Noah... a Man of Faith"

      In God's world people didn't care about God or the way he wanted them to live. He had to make a fresh start. Noah was the one good man: he listened carefully and did exactly as God said. Today it is sometimes difficult to stand up for what we believe - to resist peer pressure and listen to God's word.

    ST. WINIFRED'S SCHOOL, Southampton, Hampshire
    "Fair Trade"

      The slave trade was about human exploitation. Our dance begins in a modern supermarket offering fair trade goods in an attempt to redress exploitation because it still goes on today. Ghosts from the past haunt the supermarket and take us back to the slave trade. We present "Fair Trade".
