Our last day of school this year is on Tuesday 21st June. we would like to wish Sol, Hannah, Cameron, Amanda and Maya the best of luck as they move on up into secondary school.
We hope everyone has a great summer and school restarts again on Tuesday 30th August. please remember to bring home all clothing, lunch boxes, water bottles, school bags etc the new school calendar will be published on the side of the blog during the summer months.
Today is Jamie’s birthday, yesterday he brought a cake into school.
On Monday we are putting on our End of Year Concert. last weekend Brian and Denis put a very long curtain rail with 4 curtains on it, in the big hall last weekend. it has made a great difference to our productions.
The younger pupils are doing a play called “The Gingerbread Man” and then that is followed by the Senior Play which is all called “Ancient Egypt”.
We are very grateful to Sue our Drama teacher for putting these productions together (the music, the dance and working on the script), to Shia who is doing all the props for us, to Andrew and Melissa who have helped with the props and then Melissa helping with staging. Both Brian and Noreen have been doing a great job back stage. But it is the pupils themselves who bring live and soul to the production, they have really worked very hard all term on it.
We will end the concert with the Senior Room singing some of their favourite songs, “Put a Little Love in your Heart” “The Climb” and “Hold Back the River”. we will end the concet with two fun songs “History” where they will play their own precussion instruments which they made this term and “The Cup Song” where we are going to attempt to do the cup actions, we have been trying the actions and having a great time doing it.
Today we had fun making our own Footloose video.
On Wednesday last, we made white and dark chocolate chip cookies and flapjacks. First we made the flapjacks with oatflakes, butter, brown sugar and golden syrup. For the biscuits, everyone helped with weighing out ingredients, mixing and creaming the biscuit mixture and then rolling the biscuits into little balls before putting a finger print in the middle of each one.
look at all the biscuits we made, loads and the yummy flap jacks too. Everyone went home with lots of homemade goodies today.
We celebrated our Sports Day on Thursday 9th June. we were lucky with the weather that it was not too hot and everything was finished before the rain.
This year the pupils were divided into 3 groups, red, blue and yellow. each team competing for the first second or third plaque. we had 100m. races, sack races, potato and spoon races, three legged races, relays, tug of war etc One fun relay race we had was a costume race, where the pupils had to put on a complete outfit and run a lap with the clothes and then past them to someone else to put on.
The parents also took part in the fun costume relay race, the pupils really enjoy watching their Mums and Dads racing. the
The pupils made lovely magnets out of coloured card, googly eyes and magnets with Miss Whooley.
