    Greek Plays - Performance

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Children in year 5 have been creating, and practising their Greek plays. Children were tasked with creating a story based on either a Greek tragedy, or comedy. Safe to say all groups chose a comedy. The children had the pleasure of performing their plays on Tuesday afternoon outside in the lovely sunshine. The children performed really well and gave it their all! Well done guys!

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    This week has seen assessment week but more excitingly has seen year 5 prepare and plan for a performance of their very own Greek comedy. Children have been writing scripts, ready for the big day and have been practising for the big day, with drama scenarios with Mr Chaffey. The children have had great fun, playing "the office," and have gave superb performances.

    Play Auditions

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    Mr Clarke and I were amazed by the brilliant auditions completed by year 5 and 6. We clearly have a lot of talent within the school. The children gave superb performances and this has left Mr Clarke and I some difficult decisions to make. We look forward to announcing the roles to the children. Well done guys!

    Art Competition Deadlines Coming Up!

    Posted by Mrs L Baker
    We have two exciting art competitions coming up! The first is being run by Berkeley Hunt Agricultural Society, who will provide the school with a wheelbarrow and 2 bags of compost. Using the theme "Follow the Yellow Brick Road – At the end of the road you will find good things,” the children need to design a garden to go in the wheelbarrow with vegetables or flowers. How you interpret the theme is entirely up to you. We will then use the winning design and create the wheelbarrow by appealing to local suppliers to help with the contents. The wheelbarrow will be judged at Berkeley Show on Sunday 24th June. A prize fund of £500 will be awarded to the winning school. We would like the children, on a rota basis, to stay with their wheelbarrows to answer any questions from the general public, so we will be asking for volunteers who will be given free child entry tickets to the show by The Show Committee. Entry forms can be found on the school website on term pages and the closing date is 18/5/18. The second competition is to design a wooden castle to be carved into the top of the large wooden stump in the courtyard near Year 1 and fairy doors to go at the bottom. The winning design will see their creation carved by a real wood artist who will be working with the school. The design could be based on Berkeley Castle, a fairy tale/ book or completely from your imagination. Entry forms can be found on the school website on term pages and the closing date is 18/5/18.

    Mindfulness Day

    Posted by Mr A Hart
    On Friday, before assessment week, the children were given the opportunity to embrace the skill of mindfulness. The children were given a range of activities, which help them to think about themselves. The particular highlight, has to be the Moana yoga session in the hall. The children had great fun, even though they were rather tired by the end.
