On Friday we were treated to one of the nicest Nursery Assemblies that I think I have ever seen. It was amazing to think that these were the youngest children in the school performing their Rainbow Fish musical numbers with such confidence and acting out the story of The Three Little Pigs with panache.
The audience loved every minute of it and would quite happily have watched it all again, and Mrs Meg’s worry that the children might have ‘stage fright’ certainly didn’t materialise. Well done to all of the Kittens and Bunnies, and also to the all of the adults who put it all together.
Little Owls Sleepover
Following the success of the Y2 sleepover, Thursday was the turn of The Little Owls. About 30 students aged from Y2-Y4 continued working on this term’s badges (including their First Aid with the help of some teacher patients) before making their own dinner and settling down to watch a movie before bedtime with their friends.
It was a lovely atmosphere with Chef Artit and his Epicure team helping the children to make their own delicious pizzas. The nurse, some of the estates team and the stand-by driver joined us for dinner and it was a very festive occasion. Miss Caroline, Miss Jo, Mr Steve and Knun Poon all stayed over to look after the Owls, with others popping in early for breakfast. This club has only been running for two terms but is clearly going from strength to strength.
Reception Ballet Show
It is a busy couple of weeks for Miss Cherry and the children who join all of her Dance ECAs. Each group over the last two weeks of term will be showcasing their talents for their friends and family. Last week it was the turn of Reception. Looking very graceful in their costumes they showed off their talents to an appreciative audience of mums and dads. Well done Reception….and well done Miss Cherry.
Move Up Day in Foundation Stage
There was a bit of excitement in school this week as children started to find out about classes for next year and meeting new teachers. Children from Foundation Stage had their change up day on Wednesday, with new friends and their parents coming in to play. This is the first time it has been organised in this way but was a great success. We look forward to August when the new classrooms are finished and the new facilities revealed.
Reception and Year 1 have also been thinking about next year and in Year 1’s case, on Friday found out not only their new classmates but also did a Q & A session in Assembly with Mr Dave’s support. The current Y2 children children did a brilliant job of explaining all about Year 2 to the children who will be coming up.
Key Stage 1 children will visit their new classes on Monday 19th June, whilst current Y2 - who are moving into KS2 - will be moving up next week.
