Christmas Production

On Friday 14th December, KS2 put on their performance 'The True Meaning of Christmas'. Inspired by the recent work on consumerism, the children in year 6 decided that they wanted this year's production to have a message linked to this issue. The children had worked extremely hard in the run up to the production learning lines and songs and honing their acting skills. We hope that you enjoyed watching the production as much as the staff and children enjoyed preparing it.

Enterprise Week

Enterprise Week has commenced! Across school, the children will be spending the next week researching, designing and making products to sell at the Christmas Fair. Which class will make the most profit?!

Canning Circus Lights

On Tuesday 27th November, a group of children from KS2 attended the switching on of the Canning Circus Christmas lights. As part of the ceremony, the children sang 'Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer', met Santa and enjoyed chocolates and mince pies. It was a lovely evening and a great opportunity for the children to showcase their talents to the local community.

Children in Need

We had a fantastic day raising money for Children in Need on Friday 16th November. Ready for the cake sale after school, the children spent the morning baking everything from cakes to cookies. Once the baking was complete, each class spent the remainder of the day finding out more about Children in Need. Year 5 and 6 set up a newsroom in the hall and produced a short booklet packed full of information on Children in Need to hand out at the cake sale. The children came to school dressed in spotty clothes and filled a giant Pudsey with coins! We're looking forward to finding out how much we raised for such a good cause.

Remembrance Day

On Friday 9th November, the children and staff marked Remembrance Day. This year it was particularly significant since it had been one-hundred years since the end of World War One. Each class found out about the war and the sacrifices people from across the globe made for our freedom and liberty. As part of the commemorations, a wreath of poppies was made by each year group. These were displayed during assembly and wishes for peace in the future were shared with the school community.

Stratford - upon - Avon visit

On Wednesday 3rd October, Year 6 went to Stratford to learn more about the Tudors. We started off the exciting adventure by going to a place called Tudor World. We were warmly welcomed by Tudor Kinglsey and Tudor Janet who showed us to our different workshops. One group looked around an interesting museum where we were told about archery, the plague and Tudor ships. After we joined back together, Tudor Kinglsey told us about crime and punishment. In the afternoon, 'William Shakespeare' gave us a tour of his home town!
