News
We had an amazing ‘Arts Week’. We will be opening our doors this Tuesday after school to share with parents the wonderful work the children and staff have achieved. Our theme this year was based around Bible stories. The children engaged in drama, music composition, sketching, card craft, sewing, batik, water colours, marbling and much more. At the end of the day the children gathered in the hall to watch ‘Open the Book’ re-enact stories from The Bible. Thank you to the army of parent helpers, which seemed to increase as the week went on. We had a lovely Friday ‘Show and Tell’ to end the week. The year 6 pupils produced a short video of the week’s events, the drama group showcased songs from ‘Olivia’ and the music group shared some of their compositions.
Parents Evening
A reminder that parents evening is next week on the 28th & 29th March. The appointment boards will be in the main reception area from Tuesday after school.
