We are very lucky to have you. If anybody would like to help volunteer for any events then we would be really grateful.
We hope you all have a wonderful Mother’s Day on Sunday.
Scrooge Production: Friday 3rd March 2023
This morning all of the children enjoyed watching a theatrical production of Scrooge, which is a stage adaptation of the classic story 'A Christmas Carol', which was written by Charles Dickens. We were so proud of how well they joined in and the performers said they were a fantastic audience and couldn’t praise our school enough for the warm welcome they received. The children said 'It was even better than the film', 'It was amazing', 'I loved the songs' 'You need to show kindness' and our Year 6 children said this had made them even more excited to go and see the Lion King in London with school in a couple of weeks!
The classic story highlighted our school focus on kindness as mean Scrooge learnt to be kind after being visited by three spirits who showed him the error of his ways. A huge well done to Daisy for showing lots of courage when she was chosen to join the actors on stage.
Thank you so much FOSB for paying for the performance. It was a delight to see the childrens' faces as they were a picture and made several of our staff team, including myself, rather emotional watching them. What a great end to world book day week!
