Travelling by Tuba gave us a rousing Christmas themed concert this morning with class workshops following. We learnt about instruments from ancient history from conch shells to the Roman Cornu, to the huge Swiss Alpine Horn. We sang along and even had a go at playing them too.
Our Elf on the Shelf - Sparkle- sent us a message asking us to decorate our new tree. When our tree was decorated, we turned off the classroom lights and switched on our Christmas Tree lights. We think Sparkle will be pleased with our work!
Reception children visited the Grand Theatre to watch a performance of ‘Stick Man’. They enjoyed watching the cast bring one of their favourite books to life.
The children's centre panto was brimming with song, dance, comedy, adventure and magic from Cinderella, Buttons, Prince Charming, the fairy godmother and the ugly sisters.
For poetry fortnight, year 1 to 5 have been reading and practising poetry ready for today's assembly. A big thank you to published poet Mr Hart who worked with some of our classes to help them learn how to write and perform their own fantastic poems.
Our Remembrance Ceremony was a reminder of those that lost there lives or were injured in conflict. Our assembly and outdoor poppy display has received much praise and is very much appreciated.
For diversity month parents helped children paint pebbles with colourful fish designs. They emphasise our uniqueness and that people should be proud to be who they are. Sending a message of friendship, our gathered pebble fish become a school and so become a school of friends.
Our poppy display for Remembrance is taking shape. All year groups have been busy over the weeks making poppies for the memorial which will be added over the next few days. Look out for it on Grasmere Road.
Last week Nursery learnt about Halloween. They walked to Lidl to choose and buy a pumpkin and enjoyed cutting it up and discovering what was inside. Some of them decided to draw and paint their own pumpkin pictures!
Our Friday was a sea of PINK!! with our Big Pink Friday celebration in aid of Breast Cancer Care. With an eye catching assortment of pink outfits on display and lots of tasty treats on sale, thank you to everyone that took part and donated to our exciting event.
In an outdoor enrichment activity a group of year 4 children visited the Beacon Fell nature reserve. They built dens, played hide and seek and explored the nature trails of the forest where they discovered strange statues. They look like they had great fun!
From bubbling cauldrons, our resident cackling wizards and witches served up a spooky Halloween treat this lunch time with eye ball pasta and slimy worm strawberry jelly. Our dining room was suitably dressed to keep any passing friendly ghosts from interrupting our dinner time.
