Holy Week in School

Hello and welcome to my first ever website blog post! I will be updating this every week and look forward to using it to keep you all informed of the goings on in school as they happen.

As you will all be aware, this week is Holy Week and everyone in school is gearing up to celebrate our most important festival of the year, with themed activities and egg painting taking place all week.

In Key Stage 1, preparations are well underway for their fantastic performance of The Chocolate Shop. All the children have been hard at work practising their lines and rehearsing their songs; you can look forward to a memorable performance in the church on Wednesday and I'm sure that they will all look fantastic in their costumes.

Key Stage 2 have been similarly hard at work and their concert is really coming together. Having sat in on thier rehearsals, I am delighted to assure you that Mrs Wadeson has worked her magic once again and the concert is set to be a fantastic event, full of both modern and traditional songs and readings from the children that really show how much they have thought about the significance and importance of Easter. After the concert we will all be reconvening at the Village Hall for what I am sure you will all agree is the highlight of the school year - the Easter bonnet parade! 

Yesterday, Years 3&4 went to Hawes End for a day of outward bound activities and really did themselves proud. The activity leaders were extremely impressed by the manner in which they raced up Cat Bells, comparing them very favourably with a group of secondary school children that had attempted it last week, so the challenge is now upon Years 5&6 to match their endeavour! In the afternoon the children had a brilliant time on Derwent Water in canoes, playing games and having races and i'm sure that their hard work all day led to them sleeping very soundly last night.

I hope you all have a very restful and enjoyable Easter holiday and look forward to seeing you raring to go for the Summer term on Monday 11th April.

Easter Blessings,

Mrs Render
