Leavers Moving on!

The last day of term arrived and we took all our belongings home and reflected on the last week of the academic year. It has been a busy week but also an unforgettable week. Tiredness has caused tears and tantrums and that’s just the staff. Monday saw the Sports day and the weather was glorious. With both track and field events all the children did their best and we couldn’t ask for more than that. The parents also raced well – even after a false start with the Dads!

On Monday morning Classes 1 and 2 travelled to Highfields to take part in their Dance Festival with children from other local schools. Year 9 students from Highfields were running dance workshops for each group. Our first workshop had an African theme. We warmed up by doing a range of different movements led by the Year 9 students and they taught us a new dance. We then listened to the ‘George of the Jungle’ soundtrack and worked in small groups to think of dance movements to represent different animals. We performed our dances to the rest of the group. Following this we had
