Early Years and KS1 Dance Performance!


This term both early years and key stage 1 have had the pleasure of working with our superb specialist dance teacher Delene. On Wednesday each class performed spectacular routines involving both choreographed patterns and their own expressive movement. The result was a visually arresting dance performance enjoyed by the whole school. A huge well done to the children and a very big thank you to Delene for all her hard work!

Summer Fair


The Charles Dickens School community came together today to enjoy a fun-packed Summer Fair! Parents, children and teachers took part in a range of exciting activities from making sparkle jars to building castles! Plants and herbs grown by the children were sold along with the school’s own pasta sauce (with thanks to Mercato Metropolitano). Many hot dogs were sold and just as many raffle tickets! A huge thank you to everyone who gave up their time to make it such a special afternoon and a very special thank you to those who donated prizes for the raffle.

Peter Pan – A Stunning Year 6 Show!


Year 6 surpassed themselves this week with what many at the school have been calling the best Year 6 show the school has ever had. Children, parents, carers and staff were certainly highly entertained and at times greatly moved by a performance that showcased the talents of an unforgettable cohort of children. The school will miss them immensely, whilst proudly wishing them all the best for the future. A massive thank you to Mr Windle, Mr Bakas, Mrs Taylor, Mrs Worley and Mr Nathan for their phenomenal hard work. Also a huge thank you to parents and carers for practicing lines with the children. But most of all thank you to the Year 6 children for such a wonderful show!
