This morning our leaving year six students said their farewell in the grand form of the theatre.

The weeks of preparation with their teachers Miss Green, Mr Warkman and Miss Howard paid off as they put on a flawless take on the story of Robin Hood.

Filled with lots of great acting, singing, dancing and a pie to the face, the performance was a real treat for everyone involved and it’ll be sad to see them all move on.

We wish them all the best.

Nelson Mandela and Africa Week | March 24, 2014

The whole school spent the week learning about the history of the continent of Africa and the changes brought about by Nelson Mandela. Many activities where arranged throughout the week to make it as informative and enjoyable as possible.

In year one, Mrs Waller, Allen’s dad and Joesphs mam, Mrs Anjokwu came in to talk about their time living in Africa. Allen’s dad told the children all about African food, African clothes, African tribes and life in Africa. Mrs Waller talked about her childhood in Africa and lots of fascinating stories about African animals.

Mrs Anjokwu, from Nigeria talked about growing up in Africa to highlight things that are similar and different to growing up here.

The children also tried some fruit that is grown in Africa and made block graphs in Maths to show how many children liked the fruit they tasted. From the results its looks as if everybody thought the fruit was lovely.

We were then visited by Chief Chebe from Ghana. He came to the  school to teach the children even more about Africa. He taught them how to play the African drums and everybody danced and listened to his stories. Chief Chebe was great fun!
