Following class elections we now have an Eco-School Council who are launching a Recycling Poster Competition. We have had huge interest from pupils about our Eco-Council. Next week 23rd – 29th September is Recycle week, so to encourage recycling all pupils are invited to draw and enter a poster promoting this years’ theme: “It’s in our hands”.
A winner will be selected from each year group and announced in assembly on 7th October. Winners posters will be displayed at key recycling areas around their year group and will receive an art prize. Pupils can either complete their posters at home or at Calm Colouring club in the Art room during break times.
Our Year 3 and 4 children have begun their year learning a little team building and to overcome challenges with the Challenger Troop. No task proved too hard to complete, no obstacle impossible. All that was needed was a little courage and a grand sense of adventure.
The 18th and 19th July heralded the annual year 6 end-of-year production and this time it was Hairsrpay Jr that was selected, a story of a determined young woman who wants to change the world by helping break down racial barriers through her enthusiasm for dance and singing.
Exective headteacher, Mr. Stuart Pywell had this to say: "As I was watching the final production of the Year 6 production of Hairspray on Friday night, the 19th July, I realised what an incredible privilege it is to be the Headteacher of such a fantastic school. Not just because of the great children and parents, their creativity, determination, resilience and drive, nor because we had put on a play with over 100 children in our local theatre, but because of how absolutely marvellous it was that our teachers and children had chosen a contentious musical, not a mainstream choice, with some little known songs and some challenging dance routines. Not only was it a success but it engaged all the children in a real project, understanding and overcoming racism. It was truly magical watching all the children supporting encouraging and engaging in such a professional way."
