Thanks to all staff involved.

Year 5 Egyptian Museum

The children in Year 5 have transformed the class group room into a showcase of this term’s work on Ancient Egypt.  This stunning presentation is an amazing collection of artwork, design technology, historical research and writing. If you visit the museum our Year 5 children are very knowledgeable tour guides.

Midwife Crisis

In the Class 1 & 2 nativity play, a very busy midwife who never misses an important birth is extremely excited when she hears that a king is about to be born in Bethlehem. She rushes out into the night in search of a shiny golden palace fit for a king. Her donkey Steve doesn’t think he’s ever heard of Bethlehem Palace, but the midwife is in no mood to listen – where else would a king be born?  With the help of some gospel-singing angels and a very bright star, the midwife is led to a humble stable to find the very special baby already waiting for her.

Well done to all the children in Class 1 & 2 and thank you to all the staff for their hard work.

Hot Chocolate with the Head

Every Friday afternoon children who go ‘over and above’ every day that week are chosen to have a chat and share a cup of hot chocolate in the Head’s office. It’s a lovely end to the week and a great way for Mrs Carter to get to know everybody.
