The children have enjoyed another busy week of learning. On Monday in Assembly we celebrated the children’s success in our Annual Swimming Gala. The children were proud to receive certificates celebrating their positions in the wide array of races. We would like to congratulate Julia L in UC and Rhiannon J in LC in particular, who both performed brilliantly in the gala, winning each of their races across all of the swimming strokes. The Annual Gala was a super way to show case the children’s progress in their swimming this year and we would like to thank Miss Taswell for organising this exciting event for the children.
This half term in Science, UC have been learning about adaptation, natural selection and evolution. To explore these concepts with the children, Mrs Halford used the book ‘The Molliebird’. UC were tasked to create their own Molliebird and hide it within our school grounds. As a class, UC then acted as predators searching for the Molliebirds. The children had great fun learning about adaptations such as camouflage and how this can lead to survival of species.
On Tuesday our Chapel was ‘rocking’ as six of our drumming pupils performed in a Drumming Recital Assembly. It was super to see the pupils in their element on the stage as they all played with such confidence. The progress they had all made over the last two terms was clear. We would like to thank Mr Lane for inspiring the children with his teaching and hope that the performance might have inspired some more children to take up the opportunity of having drumming tuition in September.
Wyndham Class have had fun in Science this week as they have collaborated in groups to produce collages of the digestive system. The children loved working together to demonstrate their learning and were very proud of the collages that they created. Well done Wyndham, we love your creativity!
The whole school were excited for their fun Splash Session on Wednesday morning at Chard Leisure Centre. As their final swim of the school year, the children had fun with floats, equipment and large mats in the water. Lots of wet, watery fun was had by all!
On Thursday morning, our Head of Music Mrs Orr-Ewing, led Pre-School age children and their families in our final Mini Melody Makers session of the school year. The children had great fun making music together and exploring movement. Do contact Mrs Mason in the School Office on email@example.com to book your place for our weekly Mini Melody Makers sessions which will resume in September after the Summer Holiday.
This week rehearsals have continued for our Cerdic production of Beauty & The Beast. It has been exciting to see the show coming together and to hear the children becoming more confident in their parts. We cannot wait to see our Cerdic children shine in their performances next week.
Next week on Wednesday and Thursday afternoon the Cerdics and Harris are looking forward to performing Beauty & The Beast in our School Chapel. On Friday afternoon we hope you will all be joining us at The Church of the Good Shepherd for our Annual Prize Giving Ceremony & Music Concert. After the ceremony, you are all invited back to the School Chapel where cream teas will be served.
