 KEY STAGE 1 ON THE BIG SCREEN!

The children and staff of Key Stage 1 had an amazing experience when they won a national competition to have their winter musical professionally filmed.  The children worked hard to learn their lines, songs and dances, then put on an amazing performance in front of a professional camera crew.  They were then invited to a special screening at Cinema de Lux.  It was an incredible experience for them.  A huge thank you to all the staff who helped make it possible, and the parents for their support in learning lines and organising costumes.  Look out for details of a special screening in school soon.

 

SKILLS FOR WORK

Year 6 had visitors from Learn by Design who organised activities that encourage skills for the world of work. These include: teamwork, creativity, resilience, leadership. The children worked in groups to carry out tasks. They built towers, wind turbines and a variety of different circuits. Afterwards, the children were able to reflect on the skills that they needed to work on as well as the ones in which they were strong.

 

Dear Parents and Carers,

As we draw to the end of what has been a really busy and exciting autumn term, I wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for the continued support you have shown for your children and to the school.

It has been lovely meeting so many of you when you have attended events here in school.

We work together in partnership to give our children the best possible education and the start in life that they all deserve.

I wish you all a very peaceful and relaxing holiday.

 

Mr Daintith

ARBO’S RECOMMENDED READS

 

How to Cheat a Dragon’s Curse by Cressida Cowell is my favourite book because it is full of adventures and funny stunts. I would recommend it because I found it extremely enjoyable. ” Asiya Class 14

 

 Uzair and Hafsa from Class 8 recommend My Naughty Little Sister by Dorothy Edwards. They say:  “We like it because it is funny and the stories make us laugh. The little girl in it is naughty but she does try to be good!”
