Under the sea drama workshop

We had a perform drama workshop with Sarah on Wednesday in Lloyd Hall. We thought about all the different creatures we might see under the sea and moved like them. Then we put on our diving gear and we got ready to swim. While we were swimming we met Dolly the dolphin who told us about the lost pearl that the deep sea creature took to the Arctic bottom. We hunted for the magic pearl and then we made a wish on it. I wonder what everyone wished for?

Errol’s Garden

All of the nursery and reception children watched a production of Errols Garden by the Golden Toad theatre company at school today. There was lots of songs and dancing too. We found out all about how Errol and his sister Tia created a garden on the roof of their flats and all their neighbours helped. All the children and the adults agreed it was a brilliant show.

Here is a link to a trailer and activity for the show…..

Dressin’ Up for the day

Today is a school wide dressing up day! The children have really gone for it and look fantastic. We are raising much needed cash for school funds – you can still make a donation online or to the collection buckets. There will be a collection on each gate this evening and more photos uploaded after school.

Thanks to everyone who has been involved in getting the children ready for today.

Dress up day

Lots of different characters arrived at nursery today, there were some Elsa’s, some Matildas, Batman, some pirates, Harry Potter, a butterfly, Pippi Longstocking, Adam’s Aquatic Adventure, a tiger, a policeman, Elmer, Belle, and some superheroes. We also had a really rock and roll princess. Well done everyone for making such an effort you all look fabulous.
