Wizards and Wizardry
On Friday 14th July, we held our Leavers' Service at St. Andrew's Church, follwed by a party at school.
Presentations were made to the school and staff on behalf of the Year 6 parents, including two splendid apple trees to keep us in healthy eating for years to come. Year books and Class of '17 sweatshirts were distributed to all the pupils.
The teachers' gifts were roses with names linked to their own.
Everyone watched the class video set to the sound of Justin Timberlake's 'Can't Stop the Feeling', the children had crazy pictures taken in the photo booth by Mr Westlake-Webb (a few examples here) and the evening ended with energetic dancing to some current favouriite songs and the disco classics!
Best wishes to all the children for the next stage in their school career - we'll miss you!
Wizard of Oz
On Tuesday 11th July, Oak Class presented two performances of their version of 'The Wizard of Oz'.
The show had some entertaining contemporary references as well as some perennial messages about important values, but most of all it was FUN!
Great characterisations and singing performances, amazing costumes! Thanks to everyone who supported the production, including Mrs Willis for help with the back drop and Mrs Knight for hair styling.
The fabulous make-up was courtesy of three students from Swindon College, who spent many hours at school on Monday and Tuesday to help with this aspect.
Thanks to the PTA for providing the interval refreshments.
Congratulations to Ms Hingley, Mrs Clegg, Miss Watts and Mr Woodman for rehearsal work and technical aspects. Most of all, a huge 'Well Done' to the children for putting on a really engaging show, which thoroughly deserved its standing ovation!
Below are a selection of pictures. The super-professional ones are by Mr Westlake-Webb. He will making more available to all parents shortly.
