Friendship Week – Big friend, little friend!

Today, as part of our annual Friendship Week every child in the school partnered up with an older/younger child to take part in ‘big friend, little friend’. Children from Year 6 partnered up with Year 2, Year 5 visited Year 1, Year 4 partnered with Nursery children, and Year 3 went to Reception.

The children worked on a range of activities from writing stories about friendship to reading together, making friendship bracelets to playing board games. The children found the experience engaging, educational and socially enriching.

Teachers throughout the school have also been celebrating friendship week by leaving gifts, cards and generally being extra-supportive of their ‘secret friends’, drawn from a ballot. The message, for both adults and children, is that we can and should always try to do more to make the world a friendlier place.

Well done to all the children and adults in Year 1 and 2 for such a super winter show. In a short space of time, children learnt words, dances and songs to bring to life the heartwarming story of a penguin on a journey o meet Santa Claus.

The audience were greatly impressed with the enthusiastic singing, great comic timing and terrific team work. The children exuded joy and impressive levels of confidence and poise.

Music Assembly

WOW – today the school was treated to two superb performances by the choir, guitar and ukulele clubs! They played and sung wonderfully in front of Key Stages 1, Key Stage 2 and Early Years. Both songs were instantly recognised by the children who battled hard against the urge to sing along!

Luckily, we got to sing along at the end which sounded beautiful! Well done to all of the singers, musicians and adults involved. It was an absolute delight!
