Calling all musicians

On 18th December we will be holding a music concert in school, where children can get a change to showcase their musical talents.  If your child wishes to play their instrument in the concert, can they please let Mr Smith know by Friday 8th December, what musical pieces they would like to play so we can establish the running order.

Thank you

Coffee, cake and a catch-up for Macmillan

This Friday, we will once again be hosting a coffee morning in support of the Macmillan Cancer Support charity.  The coffee morning will start at 9am through to 10am, so once you’ve waved goodbye to your child(ren) on the yard, pop in to school via the reception entrance and enjoy a cup of coffee, tea and cake for this worthwhile cause.

Summer Music Concert

The date for our Summer Music Concert is Wednesday, 20th July 2016 at 2.15pm.   The children have been working hard throughout the year, improving week by week – so this is a chance to see what they have learnt during their music lessons.  The concert is usually well attended so don’t be late to ensure you get a seat!  We hope you can make it.

Year 4’s Limericks

Following a wonderful suggestion from Ms Challinor, the Crocodiles have been writing limericks in Class 4. Mrs Thorne then suggested that we should put all them into a book for the Library, so the children have been busy working independently to create a page each. They now have a copy of the book each. They were very excited!!!


My favourite is by Rosie:

There was once a man called Dan,

Who had a very good tan,

He wanted to cook,

But had rotten luck,

As he smashed himself with a pan.
