5S had a very productive morning making a variety of items to sell at the Christmas Fair, as you can see in the pictures below. The children made snow globe Christmas tree baubles, pomanders and wrapping paper. Thank you so much to all those parents and grandparents that were able to join us; you were a great help. We look forward to seeing you all at the Christmas Fair and hope you will 'dig deep' to buy the amazing things your children have made!
Wishing you all a lovely weekend.
Well done to 5S who managed to raise £16.40 for Children in Need during playtime on Friday - not bad for 15 minutes work! The children devised a game where people had to guess where on the iceberg Pingu was hiding. The game was very ably managed by Harmony-Rose, Macey and Matilda (you did a great job girls) and was very popular amongst the Key Stage 2 children.
We have had a wonderful afternoon with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, who have visited the school to show us different different types of instruments and to play pieces of music from The Nutcracker, which we have been learning about in music with Mrs Jones. We had such a fun time dancing in response to the music, singing and participating in body percussion - which left our hands tingling! Watching the children dance as fairies and rusty soldiers was most entertaining. Especially well done to Joel who was chosen to conduct the orchestra and did a marvellous job. I am sure this is an experience that the children will remember for a long time.
As a result of the amazing instruments that your children made for homework, they have been working very hard with Mrs Jones in music to accompany 'The Nutcracker' using the instruments that they made. I have attached a video of the performance for you to see what a wonderful job they did.
