EYFS Nativity

The children in EYFS have worked very hard to learn the Nativity. We performed the play 'A king is Born' and the children had lots of songs, instruments and lines to learn! The rehearsals went very well, and the children quickly learnt how to use the stage safely. They practised using 'big voices' to say their lines and acted very well indeed. There were a few nerves on the morning of the performance to parents, but I am sure everyone would agree that the children performed brilliantly! A big well done to all involved.The children in EYFS have worked very hard to learn the Nativity.

Showing Assembly 1.12.17

This morning's assembly saw Year 2, 4 and 6 share their work with the rest of the school. Year 2 showed the school their Christmas cards this morning. They have used their cutting and collage skills to create their cards and are looking forward to giving them to their families next week. Year 4 showed the school their wonderful digestion t shirts. They also performed their class rap, which they had composed in Music, explaining how the digestive system works. Finally, Year 6 presented their animal posters from Science, their self-portraits in the style of Picasso’s ‘blue’ period, and their own versions of Shakespeare's witches poem from Macbeth. They concluded the assembly with a debate highlighting the differences between Athens and Sparta during Ancient Greece.

Parliament Week

On Tuesday 14th November, Mr Sandys presented an assembly celebrating National Parliament Week. The children learnt more about how our government was created through MPs being elected as well as seeing how laws are passed by the voting process. Annabel, our elected prime minister for the assembly, unfortunately failed to get her proposed extra hour of school a day passed through much to the delight of the audience majority.IMG 1323
