Week 6.  Making Peach Surprise Dessert

We were very lucky to be visited by Tim from Rocksteady music. He delivered a very exciting (and loud) music concert. We sang along to the guitar, electric drum kit, keyboards and other instruments with him! Hopefully some of us will get to learn to play these fantastic instruments next time he visits us! Thank you Tim, see you soon!

We started celebrating the Chinese New Year in Year 1. We read a story called Dragons in the City where we learnt about Chinese culture and how they celebrate the new year. We wrote down our wishes for the year on pieces of red paper. We also made lanterns, decorated lucky charm fish and used gold and silver paint to write in Mandarin . We had lots of fun!

St Stephen's Primary 10 - 0 Dixon Allerton

Fantastic first performance from all players. Our starting 8 came out the blocks early, quickly firing 3 goals past a very competent keeper from Dixon's. The first of many came from an excellent counter attack orchestrated by Tayyab allowing Sarsan to neatly side foot the ball home.

All players continued to press and clearly apply the skills their very talented coaches have been teaching them.

Sapling's last visit to the library

Saplings last trip to city library, the children really enjoyed listening to Handa's Surprise book, making fruits and baskets with the play dough. The children were all interested in books and rhymes, this has developed children's imaginative skills and communication development.  At the end of the session all children received certificates for attending four sessions in the library.

Saplings January 2019

Our saplings children took a trip to city library with their parents. It's a great idea to start visiting the library with your child on his/her early life. 

The children really enjoyed story time and using puppets and then joined in with their parents / carers to do a craft activity afterwards.

We also did some singing, which helped children to make good relationships with their parents and other children it also helped children to develop their understanding and speech.

We all now have got our little cards for library, which means children get the chance to choose and borrow their own books.

Year 5 Perform Macbeth

Our year 5 Macbeth cast made us extremely proud when they performed at the Alhambra Studio on 21st November 2018.  A huge thank you to Luke Broughton who directed and produced the play and to Mr Calcraft for supporting the rehearsals and making sure everyone had their correct costumes. He also did a cracking job on the drums! Our Chair of governors was also present for the performance and wrote this:

 

Please pass on this on to the cast of Macbeth my warmest congratulations on a fine, spirited performance of the play. The whole company acted with verve and confidence, and the performance was without the hesitations that come when an actor is struggling for the next line, or is unsure of the next move. The production was fluent and the pace energetic. Imaginative ensemble work, especially when the witches were on stage, created memorable moments, and especially I shall remember the leaping flames of the cauldron as the witches vigorously danced and cast their scary spells. The supernatural was powerfully evoked. Strong individual performances from the actors in the lead parts brought the play fully to life, and every member of the cast produced enunciation that was very clear and well projected. I could hear every word.
