We have high hopes for all our pupils and it is important to us that children enjoy the time they spend here. Our aim is to provide a positive, nurturing learning environment for all children to enable them to achieve their potential and be the best that they can be.

Young Voices 2019

Young Voices 2019   Young Voices 2019

We went to Sheffield Arena with Mrs Everson, Miss Dunkerly, Mrs Mason and Mrs Dunstan. Young Voices was really fun because there was an embarrassing dad dancing session and we took part in the biggest choir in the world. There were lots of famous popstars and hip hoppers. We had to hold little torches and wave them about in the darkness whilst we sang. We had to practise over 11 songs for 4 months, the most popular songs was mostly pop medley and the Greatest Showman. We were there for about eleven hours and we set off at eleven and came home at ten oclock. It was the best experience ever!!!

For their concert this year, Key Stage 2 performed 'Cinders', a pantomime based on the story of Cinderella. All the children were involved, with the Year 3s and 4s singing in the choir and Years 5 and 6 providing the actors, dancers, back stage hands and also singing. A lot of practice and hard work from children and staff went into bringing this production to life and the result was a memorable performance that everyone enjoyed.

Christmas With The Aliens

KS1 concert

The children of Years 1 and 2 completely wowed us this year with a remarkably professional performance called 'Christmas With The Aliens'. All of the actors, singers and dancers did an amazing job and they really lived up to the saying 'the show must go on'! Well done to everyone involved!
