Little workers on Open Morning!

We can’t resist sharing these pictures from last Saturday’s Open Morning….

In the first image, some of our Year 2 pupils are demonstrating their creative skills for visitors to admire, while the rest show Year 1’s little Van Goghs hard at work. The children have been studying the life and work of the famous French Impressionist and have been really enthusiastic about his colourful sunflowers!

Fry triumph in House Music Competition!

The Barn echoed to the sound of the seventies yesterday when this year’s house music theme took us back to the age of flares, funny hairstyles and fantastic tunes.

The competition requires each house to produce a programme featuring a solo/duet, an instrumental number and both small and full-house choirs. The houses this year effectively covered a musically-varied decade; tracks chosen stretched from The Carpenters’ 1970 classic ‘Close to You’ (Fry’s ten singers contribution) to the haunting synth sounds of Joy Division’s ‘Love will tear us apart’ from 1979, performed by Austen as its instrumental contribution.

As always, the result was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon; competitive, supportive and light-hearted.  Mrs Collin gave some constructive feedback on behalf of the judges and the final result was a win for Fry, with a total of 265 points. Well done to all involved.

Mr Crump

balloonsonlyJust a reminder to all our pupils (from Reception – Year 13) who are coming into school tomorrow for our Open Morning.

Please arrive at school from 9.30 – 9.45 am, come in through the side gates and go straight to your form room for registration at 10.00am before joining the teacher you are helping. At the end of the event,  please let your teacher know you are leaving and go out via side gates not through Reception.

If you are acting as a guide, please come to the entrance hall at 9.45 to register with Mrs Jones.

Please remember to wear your full uniform including hats and blazers and make sure you’re looking extra neat and tidy.
