Today we supported Christmas Jumper Day. Every child wore a festive jumper to school and in return gave a donation to Save the Children. There was a real Christmassy atmosphere in school and some amazing jumpers with lights, bells tunes playing. We are delighted to be able to announce that we raised £360.
Last night we took 140 of our children to the pantomime to see Peter Pan at The Marlowe Theatre. There was huge excitement amongst them, made even better by Peter Pan making his zip wire entrance right where our children were sitting. Yet another great performance by the cast including Shaun Williamson and Wendi Peters had our children completely captivated. There was lots of laughter had by all, including the adults! Two of our children even got to meet Peter Pan himself which made their night!
As adults it was wonderful to see the children participating and having so much fun, with us often watching them rather than the pantomime itself!
Looking forward to Cinderella next year.
We are delighted to announce that two of our children have their Christmas banner designs displayed at Whitefriars in Canterbury after having their entries shortlisted.
Well done Johnny and Ava. Fantastic artwork, we will be looking out for them!
On the 28th November, eight children from across year 5 and 6 had the opportunity to work with children's poet, Brian Moses for an able writers day. They took part in activities that encouraged their minds to broaden and think beyond the obvious in order to create imaginative and thought provoking poetry.
On Friday our Year 5 children enjoyed a trip to the Gulbenkien where they watched a performance called ‘Ramshackle House’. Then on Saturday a number of children took part in the pre-show curtain raiser performance, using the skills that they had learnt from the ‘Upswing’ circus performers who visited the school last week.
