Final Countdown…It’s Christmas

Its been a really great end to the term, with so many great activities going on across this week.

It was a super start to the week with the Choral group performing at the Parish Church.  My first time at the rehearsal and listening to the children sing the different songs was very moving.  Their voices filled the Church and it sounded beautiful!  Well done everyone for a wonderful performance.

Aladdin in Trouble… another great Christmas Play.  A huge well done to all the children involved, from the superb singing, to those performing on stage. Year 5 children got a little taster of being on stage (as Suitors for Jasmine).  I must say everyone was very calm and enjoyed the opportunity to performing on stage. I can see by Year 6 they will be ready for the challenge of putting together a whole school performance for sure.

In between all the fun and creative work, we have actually been working very hard on completing our science enquiry. The children investigated “How do rockets lift off?” and enjoyed making their own mini rockets (using a film canister and effervescent tablets). We had great fun launching these earlier on in the week.  The children created short iMovies capturing their learning around the investigations carried out.

The children have worked very hard this term and I feel proud of them all.

I hope everyone has a great Christmas break and look forward to returning to school ready for another fun filled term.

Happy Christmas everyone!
