What wonderful performances by our children!

A big ‘Well done’ to all our nursery children in the performance of their Christmas songs.

You were all amazing!  It takes a lot of courage to stand up on stage and perform in front of a big audience.

Thank you to all our parents for your support and joining in with the singing and the eating of the children’s mini chocolate Christmas puddings made at school. We hope you enjoyed our festive celebration! See you safely back in 2018.

On Friday 15th December, Reception welcomed their family and friends to watch their wonderful performance of ‘Christmas Counts’. Every child tried their best throughout this half term, whether they were acting, dancing or singing and together performed fantastically on the day.


Our Year 2 children put on an excellent performance for us last week! They took us on a beautiful adventure to show us how the Children of the World celebrate Christmas. The Year 2 children

demonstrated many entertaining talents; from acting, singing and dancing. The children’s voices were incredible and it was clear that they were dedicated to delivering a great show. Their costumes looked fantastic and it was noticeable from the smiles on their faces that every child enjoyed taking part.



Minet Infant Choir Sings Again

The Choir have been really busy this term with rehearsing and performing their Christmas carols. They worked fantastically as a team to sing beautifully to the residents at Triscott House and to the public at Sainsbury’s. The children really put a smile on everyone’s faces and definitely spread the Christmas cheer to all that listened. Thank you to all of the residents at Triscott House for being such a lovely, welcoming audience! Another big thank you to friends and family for supporting and encouraging our Choir at Sainsbury’s! We hope to see you all again soon, in the New Year.

Our Rights Respecting Human Rights Day 2017

As part of our learning about Children’s Rights, we took part in Human Rights Day on Thursday 7th December.

Article 42: You have the right to know your rights! Adults should know about these rights and help you learn about them, too.

The morning started with an assembly, which the Ambassadors helped to deliver and then children in their own classrooms learnt about Rights and why they are important. Some children in Year 2 wrote and sang their own Rights songs and in Year 1 they made colourful posters. In Reception the children considered the difference between a right and a want.


A visit to St Anselm’s

This half term as part of our Religious Education curriculum all Year One children visited our local Church, St Anselm’s. The children met the Church Vicar, Father Geoffrey, who is also our school governor.

Father Geoffrey showed the children around the church pointing out the key features of the building and read them the Christmas story.   

Our children, as always, represented our school positively. Father Geoffrey sent the school an email after the visit and he had this to say, “Their behaviour was a credit to themselves and the school.”

During the visit the children learnt facts and asked questions that enhanced their learning and extended their general knowledge.

KS1 and Reception had an exciting start to the Christmas season with a performance of The Selfish Giant by Image Theatre Company. First, the children were taught the songs and actions by Dimitri, Joe and Rose, and then after a short break, watched the show. It was lots of fun and everyone enjoyed singing the songs and taking part in a real theatre production.
