Year 6 took part in a World War 2 production this afternoon, to an audience of parents, grandparents and other friends and relatives. The children dressed up as wartime evacuees as they performed some well-known wartime songs, recited poems, performed traditional wartime swing dancing and shared some of their work they have written since September. Well done to all the children for a great performance!
To mark national anti-bullying week, the whole school carried out various activities last week. Each class put together a class oath of their own pledges, showing how they would tackle bullying by respecting others. The children were also encouraged to write messages to put on our ‘kind hearts and compliments’ display, recording compliments about their peers. Our Anti-Bullying Ambassadors visited Abacus school to meet other ABAs and share ideas. A friendship club ran during some lunch times, where the children worked together to create art pieces. Finally we had Childline workshops running throughout the week.
The day began with a beautiful sunrise.
Overall the children have had a good first night and stayed in their dorms. The last few girls fell asleep just after midnight but some of the boys were awake until around 3am…and up at 5.30am. We think some of them will sleep well tonight!
Unfortunately, we now have the rain that was forecast. But (apparently), “Rain is fun because it makes everything muddy!” Amber Rayner.
then a brighter afternoon.
After a very welcome hot dinner, we are now enjoying Scrap Heap Challenge.
