The inspiration for the dance was The Nutcracker and Tweedmouth West’s dance was an interpretation of this linked to the events of the First World War. Eighty schools from throughout England participated in the project and Tweedmouth West were thrilled to have been judged runners-up. They received a special commendation for their emotive dance.

The whole of Year 4 were delighted to attend a live broadcast of the Nutcracker ballet at Alnwick Playhouse, hosted by the Royal Ballet.
