Every Friday we have a celebration assembly where we celebrate children’s achievements, both in and out of school, in many different areas.
Each week the class teacher selects a child to be presented with the ‘Child of the Week,’ ‘Star Writer’ and ‘Handwriting’ (fortnightly) award.
We also have awards from the lunch time staff, attendance awards, best line awards, Lexia reading awards and individual star chart achievements as well as celebrating sporting events.This is also an opportunity to celebrate childrens’ birthdays’ as a school.
It’s really exciting hearing about the good things people have done.
– Ioana P, Year 6
Our Harvest festival yesterday on Thursday 19th October was super. The children all worked hard and made us all proud with their performances. It was lovely to see so many adults attend. Thank you to all who donated foodstuffs for the Hereford Open Door charity. The charity supports individuals and families who may be homeless or in financial need, by providing cooked breakfasts, some hot meals and food parcels to supplement low incomes.
Christmas Carol Concert
The children of Class 6 were responsible for leading our Carol Service in St Michael’s Church on Thursday 14th December. They talked about Christingle, showed the process of making a Christingle and the meaning behind it.
The Carol Service also included songs from the Class 1 and 3 Christmas play Hey Ewe, as well as a traditional poem 'Twas the night before Christmas recited by Class 5.
Mrs Ashmead and Mrs Prowse taught the children many different Christmas Carols and songs that were put between the readings to make our Carol Service special. The choir also sang their selection beautifully. Class 6 rounded it all off by performing the song 'Light of the world.' Singing by lit Christingles in the dark Church was very atmospheric and many of the parents said it was a lovely way to close our Carol Service.
Class 6 assembly - Perseverance
On Thursday 8th February class 6 delivered a super class assembly on perseverance. They told us a fable and a true story about perseverance, as well as talking about various famous people who persevered with their ambitions, ideas and beliefs. It was a great message for us all to remember, to never give up. Great job class 6!
Mother's Day assembly
As always on Friday 9th March our Mother’s Day assembly was super and each class contributed. Class 1 and 5 recited a poem and class 3 and 6 performed songs. It was very touching and a wonderful way to say thank you to all the special ladies in our lives for all they do.Hope you all get spoiled rotten on Sunday.
Class 3 assembly - The Iron Man
On Thursday 22nd March class 3 performed their rendition of The Iron Man by Ted Hughes. The children narrated the story with some of the children acting out different scenes from the book. It was fantastic. All the children worked really hard. They have thoroughly enjoyed studying this text so it was a lovely way to end the topic. Well done class 3, fab work!
We held our school Easter celebration today, in St Michael’s church (Thursday 29th March). It was lovely to see so many of you attend to watch the children’s super performances of songs and poems, as well as the year 5 narration throughout. The whole school were wonderfully behaved and performed beautifully.
This was followed by the duck race, organised by the PTFA. The ducks were released into the river by the playing fields and raced to the bridge by the Post Office. Well done to Charlie Hales, Jo Wyatt and Andrew Buchanan who came first, second and third. The PTFA raised a large sum of money that will be fed back into school for the children. Thank you everyone.
