What an amazing turn out for our Titanic launch - The children...and staff... all looked amazing in their costumes.  For our launch day we took part in a round- robin of activities between the three classes, 1st, 2nd and 3rd class that is! In 1st class we learnt how to waltz, it was just like Strictly!  In 2nd class we became band members and composed our own tunes, which was rather noisy but great fun.  In 3rd class we played card games and Shove half penny, which was also very noisy and exciting. We then went on in the afternoon to draw and collage a cross section of the Titanic, working in groups, we ended up with some amazing ships.

Happy New Year!  We hope you all had a very Merry Christmas and New Year.
Tomorrow, Thursday 4th, is  our launch day for this term's Topic - TITANIC. We would like to invite the children to dress up as passengers from the Titanic. Letters were sent out at the end of November detailing this and the 'class' of passenger your child had been randomly picked to be.  If you are a struggling to find a costume, black/grey trousers and white shirt/T shirt for the boys and a knee length, or below, skirt and blouse or dress for the girls. We look forward to seeing the passengers as the appear at Bishop Bronescombe dock side tomorrow! Thank you.

Wow, wow, wow!  The children have just performed the most amazing Nativity performance I have seen for a long time.  There was an awful lot of absence due to illness and our fab children stepped in at the last minute to cover some big roles. The singing was out of this world and the songs will be stuck in my head for a long time! Huge thanks to all the parents who provided the costumes, hope you enjoyed it as much as we did.
