Leavers’ BBQ

Last night everyone enjoyed team games, dancing, delicious food, an incredible cake and so much more.

Willow Class would like to say a huge thank you to all of the parents who worked so hard to put together such a memorable evening 😀

Here are a few highlights from the evening…..

What a knight!

What a knight was fantastic! We’ve never heard so many people complimenting us on our incredible acting, singing, dancing and comic timing!

The story was set on King Arthur’s birthday. The evil black knight uses Camelot’s merrymaking for a chance to attack. She kidnaps Arthur’s daughters in an attempt to get Excalibur. The knights ( thinking they have got Merlins strength potions) try to rescue the prisoners. However, it turns out they had animal potions and turned into animals!

So, instead of the knights, Princess Alice, Watt Cobblers and Dusty the dragon save the prisoners and return to Camelot triumphant. The black knight crashes the party thinking she’s got Excalibur but actually it’s a feather duster! Alice and Watt the defat the black knight, Merlin finds Excalibur and Watt becomes a knight!

What a hero….What an inspiration….What a knight!

House sports competitions

The last couple of weeks have been jam packed and full of sport. At the KS2 Swimming Gala, everyone swam brilliantly and contributed towards points for their houses in both individual and relay races. The overall champions were Mercury house who will be a watched the Woodborough School Swimming Cup.

Last week, it was our annual Sports Day. In the morning, each child in KS2 took part in individual sprints, vortex throws, relay races, standing long jump and the long distance run. Y6 house captains were given the task of explaining the values for the day and looking for examples of this in both morning and afternoons competitions. They also did a brilliant job helping run the KS1 events in the afternoon. This year, the house who won the Sports Day cup were Venus.

Today was the final house competition of the year – House Rounders. The Y5/6 competition was very close and there was superb fielding and batting by house teams. Overall winners for Y5/6 were Jupiter! These scores will be added to the Y3/4 and KS1 results and the winners of the rounders house shield will be revealed in School Meeting on Friday.

Leavers’ Service at Salisbury Cathedral

On Monday, all of Year 6 (with lots of support from parents) went to Salisbury Cathedral to take part in the special Leavers’ Service. During the morning, the children learnt about the parable of the mustard seed and how this links with growing, moving on and a time of transition in their lives as they prepare to move to secondary school. With lots of the others schools from across Wiltshire, they learnt songs, created pieces of art and acted out elements of the story. In the afternoon, they all took part in the special service alongside the Bishop of Salisbury and Christian theatre group – Rise Theatre. A brilliant day!
