Today we said goodbye to many special people including staff and children from year groups other than Year 6. Our best wishes go to them all for whom flags have been raised and gifts shared at other recent events.
Our Leavers service celebrated ten wonderful pupils who leave us for secondary school. Emotional as ever, the service looked back on some wonderful times together.
The following are videos shared in the service.
To see the video that inspired our lip dub, see below:
(ps. I’ve only just noticed my spelling mistake in the last film (..oops, too late to change!) Mr H)
Thanks to the funds raised at the Dragon’s Den Sale, enough was raised by our enterprise projects for a Go Kart Party and two bouncy castles! The playground was transformed into a race track for the afternoon.
After School, Year 5 pupils joined us for a party which ended with a fabulous cake and flag raising. Year 6 pupils presented the school with a super bird table inscribed with children’s names and a clock for the playground so that we can ring the bell at the right time each day! Many thanks!
What a Knight – WHAT A NIGHT!!!!
What an extravaganza we treated our audience to last night. Children – you were brilliant. With so many words to learn, songs to sing, places to be in at the right time, props to manage – it was a skillful performance. The production of The Railway Children we watched a few weeks ago was definitely beaten with the great singing, acting and beautiful costume and set.
Well done everyone involved. Thank you FOSS for your efforts too.
How lovely it was to see friends old and new at the event, some of whom traveled from as far as Whitby just for the show – we hope it was worth it.
We’ve had a week of making props, scenery and having rehearsals – let’s hope it’s worth the effort. Well done everyone – you have worked really hard and been very patient.
An outdoor open air concert to entertain us.
Beautiful sunshine blessed a great day for families from school and the wider community. Proceedings started at 9am when a group of cyclists left the school for the first 35 mile leg of the Adult Social Cycle Ride. They returned to school at lunchtime as the Family Fun Day opened its gates. Zorb balls, archery, mini tennis, obstacle course, play area, treasure hunt stalls and much more were enjoyed by families whilst the second 35 mile leg of the cycle ride took place, this time with more cyclists who returned at the end of the fun afternoon for a drink and a burger at The Dambusters thanks to Dave’s Daily Bread, also supporting the event.
A great day, rounded off by a Red Arrows fly past then some aching muscles to nurse. All proceeds go to the Scampton Outdoor Challenge.
As part of our preparations for Sausage and Song, we thought it would be good to get some inspiration from a professional theatre company. M and M Productions didn’t disappoint. There was not a dry eye in the house as we watched E Nesbit’s ‘The Railway Children’.
Year 5 and 6 pupils were then given a workshop when they found out about all the behind the scenes elements to the show including acting techniques, lights, sound, scenery and costume changes.
Next up – ‘What a Knight!’
Mummy’s everywhere! This afternoon Africa Class found some Pharaohs lying about so we decided we needed to mummify them and luckily we had plenty of canopic jars ready-made to put the gooey organs in!
Bizarrely, when it came to afternoon break, all the pharaohs miraculously came back to life and ran outside to play!!
Despite the threat of rain, the clouds held off enabling the whole school to join six others over two sessions for a day of sport. Activities included tag rugby, zumba, obstacle course, dodge ball and parachute games.
Two great days at the Lincolnshire Show were the reward for our efforts in the Lincolnshire Show Schools Challenge.
Having made a film about a fictional Lincolnshire farming family ‘The Tinks’, packed with information about farming from the last one hundred years, our World Premier was at the Showground in our ‘Pop up Cinema’. Lots of skills were used in the script writing, research, filming and editing of the film which was all the children’s work.
The film will soon be released on the school blog for you to watch!
