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.

Childhood Cancer Awareness

We raised an incredible £107 by wearing yellow and gold for Childhood Cancer Awareness.
Thank you so much for helping us to support this cause which is very close to our hearts.

Thanks to the Cury Atkinson family for providing us with bubbles and for talking so movingly about why it is so important to raise awareness.

 

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.

Printed Wall Hanging

Come and have a look at our wonderful wall hanging made from the African printing that Reception and Years 1 and 2 made last term.  It has pride of place in the hall. 

Huge thanks to Mrs Cake for sewing it all together for us.  

We’re very proud of it!
