FANTASTIC ‘Fantastic Mr Fox!’

The big day finally arrived yesterday for Years 3 and 4 pupils who had been excitedly anticipating their trip to the Theatre Royal to see Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox.  They had an amazing time and all agreed that the show –  a fabulously funny stage adaptation brought to life with slapstick, music and larger-than-life characters – was just brilliant! Oliver was especially excited as it was his first visit to the theatre.

The children even had time for a spot of playing Chapelfield Gardens play area before the show.

Here is what the children said about the trip:

“The show was so funny!” Matilda
“I loved the part when Farmer Bean ripped his shirt open, it was so funny!” Adam
“I loved the music, it was my first time at the theatre>” Oliver
“Awesome!” Georgina

Redwings ‘Gangsters’ at large!

This weekend,  those boarders not hard at revision visited the equine sanctuary Redwings in Aylsham. After a quick tour of the open paddocks the girls set off to explore the sanctuary, discovering donkeys, ponies and horses galore! We even found hundreds of tiny frogs – the size of a thumbnail – much to everyone’s delight. The biggest surprise was that Miss Mann secretly adopted the miniature Shetland ponies, seen here, for the boarders!  Redwings call this group The Gangsters as they are full of character…just like our girls.

Tudor task for Years 3 and 4

Over half term, pupils in Years 3 and 4 were set an explorer homework challenge. The brief? To produce something wonderful and exciting relating to the exciting Tudor period of history.  Mrs Fisher was delighted to see some really inventive work, including Tudor cakes, clay models, word searches, projects and PowerPoint presentations. Two of the children visited Tudor buildings (Hampton Court and Strangers Hall).  Each pupil received ten merits for their efforts. Well done!
