PUPILS TAKE INSPIRATION FROM FRANZ MARC

IMG_9406

This term in Art the Cerdic classes have been busy constructing Franz Marc-inspired animal masks. During his career, Franz Marc often depicted animals in their natural setting and habitat. The use of bold, bright colours were often seen in his works and he took a cubist approach in the display and creation of the animals that he depicted. We can’t wait to see the finished pieces!

HORNER & MONMOUTH SPECIAL ASSEMBLY

This week we were treated to a special assembly led Horner and Monmouth which featured an array of creative work on the topic they are currently studying which is ‘The Great Fire of London’. Through artwork, creative writing, improvisation and dance they have explored what it might have been like to live in London in the time of the Great Fire.

This afternoon it was lovely to see so many family members and friends at the ‘Oliver!’ sing-along. Our little street urchins, led by the multi-talented Fagin (Mr Pearson) and accompanied on the bass by Mr Lucas, really did us proud, and there wasn’t a dry eye in the house after Hope’s solo. Thanks as ever to Mr Pearson for leading us all!

PIXIES HOLT RESIDENTIAL TRIP

The wet weather did not dampen spirits amongst our Year 4, 5 and 6 classes as they spent 3 action-packed days on Dartmoor last week, where they experienced the wild beauty of the moors and the challenge of numerous team activities. These included orienteering, crawling through granite rock piles, clambering across tors and building shelters in the woods. The evenings were also busy, with a walk at twilight in the woods and a talent show to entertain everyone on the last night. The children behaved excellently and they responded particularly well to the team challenges and are now great team players. Well done everyone on a memorable trip!

On Wednesday Mrs Graham, Miss T, Mrs Downing and Miss Jackson spent a magical morning at Queen’s College Taunton, in the company of Monmouth and Wyndham, where they were treated to a wonderful performance of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. The acting was superb and everyone was open-mouthed when Aslan appeared, as he was a huge War Horse-style puppet. What really made it for everyone was seeing four former Chard School pupils in the cast – Sophia, Hattie, Imogen and Maisie – and also being given chocolate biscuits in the interval! Many thanks to Queen’s for inviting us.

GRANDPARENTS’ TEA

GRANDPARENTS’ TEA

The children of Chard School gave their grandparents and family members an afternoon to remember today! Assembled in the Chapel with Head of Music, Mr Pearson, they performed heart-warming renditions of family favourites such as ‘Grandma (We Love You)’, ‘The Keeper’, ‘Let It Be’ and ‘A Whole New World’. After the choral concert, grandparents visited classrooms and were taken on school tours with their grandchildren. The afternoon was rounded off with tea and a delicious array of cakes in the Chapel. Thanks to everyone who supported this very popular event!
