Dominic Berry visit – March 2017

On the 6th and 7th March 2017, the children took part in workshops led by the poet Dominic Berry. The children performed and created class poems. He also led a school assembly which was really informative, interactive and enjoyable. Dominic inspired us all to write and perform some really creative poetry.

Jack and The Beanstalk Pantomime- January 11th 2017

As a treat for achieving high attendance in each class, we were able to watch Jack and the Beanstalk in our very own hall! It was great fun and we all enjoyed it. We dressed up during the day as characters from various pantomimes. Can you guess from the pictures, which characters we were?

Back In Time For Christmas!

KS2 Show 2016-12-15

The pupils played to a packed hall on 12th December 2016. They did extremely well to remember their lines and looked fantastic in their costumes.

The play told the story of the traditions of Christmas and how long it dates back. Many traditional arising from pre-Christian festivals.

We had Romans, Mesopotamians, Persians, Druids, Celts, Vikings, Tudors and Victorians all laying their claim to part of the festivities.

The overall message was made that Christmas and the Christmas break is a perfect time to spend time with your families, whatever your beliefs may be. So enjoy it!
