Holy Week Service

This morning we were all privileged to share in a beautiful Holy Week Service led by the boys and girls in Year 4, accompanied by Year 3.

This was a truly special celebration which I’m sure will last long in the memory.

Many thanks to the boys and girls in Year 4 for re-enacting the events of Holy Week so thoughtfully and thanks to Year 3 for their wonderful support as the choir.

Sincere thanks to all of the adults concerned who prepared the children so thoroughly including Mrs O’Connor, Mrs Skelton and Miss Entwisle.

Finally, thank you to Fr. John for joining us this morning to make our service extra special.

Have a wonderful and blessed Easter.

‘Egg’-cellent Easter Bonnets!

The Easter Bonnet Parade was a huge success this morning with lots of children parading their marvellous creations!

After gathering in the School Hall, the boys and girls paraded around the School Field in their bonnets…brightening up the morning with a mass of yellow and pink!

Well done to everyone who entered and congratulations to our ‘winners’ who were chosen by the School Council.

Your bonnets were all sp’egg’-tacular!

Talent Galore!

In fact, there was so much talent on show this morning we had to start half an hour earlier so that all of the acts could perform!

As well as a change in the starting time there was also a change to the format with ‘The Voice’ judges making a special appearance…Jennifer, Olly, Sir Tom and Will.i.am looked so young!

As always, we were treated to a vast array of acts including singing, dancing, musicianship, comedy and much more besides…including a karate demonstration!

Whilst there can only be one winner, it is true to say that all of the boys and girls who performed today are winners simply for having the courage to perform in front of such a large (and appreciative!) audience.

After much deliberation the judges’ decision was as follows:

1st: Jan

2nd: Steve and Davicd

3rd: Edbert

Well done to all concerned…and a final well done to Elissa and Laura who did a superb job of hosting today’s show!

Fabulous Easter Fayre

This afternoon we enjoyed a wonderful Easter Fayre in the School Hall…and the Easter Bunny (Twinkle!) even put in an appearance!

There was so much on offer for everyone to enjoy including yummy Easter treats, art and craft, face painting, egg and spoon races, Easter egg hunts…and of course a grand raffle…with 22 prizes! 

Many thanks to all of those parents and staff who volunteered to help set up and serve…and tidy up too!

Finally, a sincere thank you to Mrs O’Connor for organising the whole event…it was truly ‘egg’-cellent!

Topic Sharing Afternoons

During the course of this week, various classes have been holding their Topic Sharing Afternoons (or Mornings!) to celebrate the successes and achievements of all of our boys and girls in their spring term topics.

Such occasions are truly special and provide parents with a deeper insight into their children’s learning in relation to their topic work, as well as having lots of fun too!

This afternoon, as part of their topic sharing afternoon, our Year 4 parents and their children were treated a to delicious ‘fish supper’ as they celebrated their Blue Abyss topic.

Many thanks and compliments to the ‘Head Chef’, Mrs O’Connor…the empty plates afterwards said it all!
