Our Christmas Service

We were delighted to share our singing, acting, dancing and instrument playing with everyone at our Christmas Service in church this week. Many thanks to everyone who supported us!

Our Choir at St Edward’s Church

Our choir completely wowed the entire congregation during the Carols for Everyone service at St Edward’s church. They made us all very proud with their festive singing!

Christmas Lights Switch On

Thank you to Mrs Painter and the choir who entertained us at the Corfe Castle Christmas Lights Switch on.

Also special thanks to our ‘celebrities’ who switched the lights on.

And finally, thanks to the Festivities Committee for allowing us to be part of this lovely celebration.

British Museum

Check out our photos from our trip to The British Museum in London! The children were fantastic and made us proud of their wonderful enthusiasm for learning about Egypt as well as their outstanding behaviour!

A big THANK YOU to all the parents support with this trip, especially those parents and staff that joined us. 

 

Bumblebee Class News

We have been very busy back at school in Bumblebee class!

We have elected our new school councillors and are really pleased that Sophie, Charles, Freddy and Shakeel will be representing our class this year.

We have got well and truly stuck into our Egyptian topic and we have designed some stunning hieroglyphic cartouches which have been turned into book marks but are also decorating our classroom door. We are organising our first trip which will be to the British Museum in London to see the real Egyptian artefacts first hand! Look out for more information to follow!

Lord Carnarvon’s briefcase still remains locked however we have cracked two of the maths challenges to get inside!

This term we are learning an Egyptian song called ‘Amazing Egyptians’. Check out the tune and lyrics here so you can practise at home.

Our value this term is Generosity. The children have already explored this through the story of The Smartest Giant in Town and the Generous Widow and have plenty of examples of the ways people are generous to them as well as ways they can be generous to others. The children have already been awarded ‘Class of the week’ for their hard work and generosity around school.

Every week we practise our times tables and are tested on our times table target. Please help your child practise as much as possible at home. ‘Hit the button’ online is a great way to practise.

Bumblebee Class Artwork

We hope you are as impressed as we are with Bumblebee Class’s artwork of the Crucifixion. It was displayed in the church for a while after our Easter service and is now on display in the school hall.

Land and Wave Adventure Club – Week 6

Land and Wave Adventure Club headed to Sandy Hills for their last session. The time has flown by!

To finish off a fantastic 6 weeks, we got to see various ways of making fires, from using batteries and wire wool to mixing potassium permanganate with glycerin!

We then built our own fire using our impressive flint and steel skills to get a spark. We got to toast some marshmallows and enjoy some delicious smores.

What a great way to end our adventure club journey! Amazing work guys!

Mystery at Magpie Manor

What a sensational performance with many many stars!
We hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did!

Set in the 1920s and steeped in legend and intrigue,
Magpie Manor is in a great state of disrepair and
Lord & Lady Pica must take drastic action to save their
crumbling manor house.
The clan is gathered and together with Mr Fortune the
bank manager and his bumbling assistants, they come up with
a plan to sell off the family silver.
But as the rich & famous guests arrive for the auction ball, strange things are occurring and just as the family heirloom is about to be unveiled, it has disappeared! Inspector Spectre is straight on the case, aided by none other than Agatha Christie and it seems that everyone has a motive from the servants and cheeky tradesmen to Cousin Rupert and his ambitious American fiancée…
But will the thief be caught and can Magpie Manor be rescued
from impending disaster?
