The children had an exciting afternoon on Wednesday 21st February 2018, watching and singing along to a version of The Wind in the Willows. The story was brought to life by actors from Image Musical Theatre. Some of our children were lucky enough to be cast a role in the production! The music, costumes and backdrop all contributed to a memorable afternoon for all.
Children from across the school have had lots of fun over the past two days, getting a taster for Destination Judo. The children experienced a variety of games that tested their balance, co-ordination and reaction.
Our local British Judo club is held at King James 1st Academy in Bishop Auckland, we hope any child that enjoyed the taster session takes the opportunity to visit their local club.
Class 5 represented our school at King James on 26th January 2018, taking part in the Sportshall Athletic Competition. All pupils took part in track and field activities. Everyone had a brilliant day and behaved well.
Mackenzie P ‘The best part was when we all had to race! Everyone was cheering so it felt like we were doing well!‘
Owen C ‘I enjoyed taking part in the javelin event.‘
Class 4 did an amazing job with their class assembly, which they performed in front of their peers & parents. The assembly was based upon their recent history topic which was all around the Romans. The assembly included factual information in the form of a newspaper report, singing and role play by the children.
Well done to all children across the school for successfully completing their dress rehearsals for the Christmas productions. The children all looked amazing in their costumes and it was obvious that the children had spent time practising their lines and songs at home as well as in school.
Anyone with tickets to watch the afternoon or evening performances of A king is born by Reception, Shine star shine by Classes 1 & 2 and No ideas for Christmas by Key Stage Two, are in for a real treat!
