Today, Friday 26th October, a fantastic, musical-theatre inspired House Event took place. Each of the four houses entered a comedy act, a dramatic performance, a song and a dance. The standards were incredibly high and our three judges: Mrs Wilkinson; Mrs Gerry and Miss Barratt had a difficult decision to make when it came to the scores. They each awarded a score out of 10 to the acts, giving a maximum of 30 house points to each act. The Green House were unfortunately unable to enter their comedy act.
The scores were as follows:
A great big ‘well done’ to all the children who entered – they had a huge audience and we were all thoroughly entertained!
We have had a lovely morning celebrating the homework from this half term. I have been amazed by the quality and creativity of some of the homework. Pictured are some of the super models that were created. Well done everybody and thank you to all of the adults who have supported their children with the homework.
Our new class book is Good Night Mr Tom by Michelle Magorian, linking nicely to our WWII history topic.
Here's a little more about the book:
Young Willie Beech is evacuated to the country as Britain stands on the brink of the Second World War. A sad, deprived child, he slowly begins to flourish under the care of old Tom Oakley - but his new-found happiness is shattered by a summons from his mother back in London . . .
Our current class book is The French Confection by Anthony Horowitz.
The hard-up Diamond Brothers win a weekend for two in Paris, but as soon as they arrive, they find themselves in danger. There's a nasty smell in the air and it's not the cheese. If Nick and Tim aren't careful, their dream holiday could end up being a nightmare from which they'll never wake up.
Anthony Horowitz is the creator of the phenomenal Alex Rider books and the bestselling Power of Five series. He won the 2006 British Book Awards Red House Children's Book of the Year for Ark Angeland the 2003 Red House Children's Book of the Year Award for Skeleton Key. Anthony also writes extensively for TV, with credits including Midsomer Murders and Foyle's War. He lives in north London with his family.
