Unlike last year, the weather smiled down on the Year 3 barbecue – and a great time was had by all. It was an opportunity for parents and staff to get to know each other over a burger or two – and brothers and sisters came too! Thanks to everyone who joined us.

April Events – Aladdin and Eggcellent Eggs

Yr 4 kept everyone enthralled with their superb production of Aladdin. As the photos show it was a visual extravaganza with colourful costumes and props. The acting and singing told the story brilliantly too! Well done to everyone involved.

Bridge that gap

Year 6 enjoyed their challenge day when they experimented with designing and making bridges using a variety of resources. Some were more successful designs than others but all the children agreed they learned a lot from the experience!

Wow! Stone age!

Year 3 had a great time when they started their Stone Age topic. In fact, some of them were unrecognisable – particularly the teachers. Can you spot anyone you know? They were clearly inspired because they have produced some wonderful topic books and art work.

Young Voices

APOLOGIES FOR THE DELAY IN POSTING THIS. DUE TO STAFF SICKNESS

One of the first highlights of the Spring term for 40 of our pupils was to take part in the Young Voices annual concert at the 02 arena where the children rehearsed and performed a vast collection of songs – off by heart! – along with about 8,000 children. In the evening parents attended the concert and were also expected to participate. A memorable experience for all involved.

Christmas events

As usual pupils were busy with a range of events during December – starting with the Yr 5 production and finishing with Carols at St Mary’s Church.

The Year 5 production this year was Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – with a few variations on the original story, of course. An extravaganza of drama, music and dance. Well done to everyone to everyone involved.

Some our our KS2 pupils were part of a massed Borough choir at the assembly hall for the Annual Civic Carol Service – always a great way to get in the mood for Christmas!

The KS2 choir also entertained shoppers at Selborne Walk and helped to collect money for the Mayors Christmas charity.

Multi Faith Day

Multi Faith Day was a great success. Various faith groups were represented and discussed the artefacts they had on display, or shared information about their religious beliefs, with pupils from KS1 and KS2. Thanks to all our visitors who came on the day.
