In the afternoon, Mrs Lawrence will be organising a Gallopathon around the school playgrounds, in the style of
Miranda Hart. The main Gallopathon is taking place on March 7th in London. Please collect sponsors for our
event as the person who raises the most money will win a Red Nose Day Prize – a sponsor form is attached at
the end of this newsletter. Please send in sponsor money the week after the event (by 20th March) to be in with
a chance of winning the Red Nose day prize.
A fantastic day was had by all yesterday for our World Day. The children thoroughly enjoyed the dancing and
music, so thank you to Unique Dance (Zoe Bull) and C.E.A.M.S. (Jon Lawrence) for their enthusiasm and
wealth of knowledge that they shared. Many wonderful activities were being carried out in classrooms; the
small selection that I saw were Reception creating their own rockets for their topic of Space, Year 1 using
bright coloured pastels and felt tips to create pop art relating to The Beatles, Year 2 creating very dramatic
shadow pictures for Africa, Year 3 designing beautiful propaganda posters and using charcoal in the afternoon
to complete eye opening pictures relating to World War 1, Year 4 making their own board games, not an
electronic in sight, for their topic of '100 years ago', Year 5 making very intricate brooches using match sticks
and tin foil and Year 6 creating their own little drama sketches based on the Slave Trade.
Both staff and children had a thoroughly enjoyable day. I hope they came home telling you their new
Thank you to all the staff, and to your children, for their participation and effort making this day a success.
