An Appreciation of Shakespeare

The children were given a midwinter’s treat on Monday, with a fantastic performance of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream.’ Thanks to an interactive workshop in the morning, where they were able to take part in performing key moments from the play, the children were able to understand the rather complicated plot! The afternoon’s play was eventful, entertaining and hilarious. An appreciation of the works of Shakespeare continues at Prospect House!

Christmas Jumpers

Please remember that you are invited to accessorise your school uniform with a Christmas jumper, hat or headband on Thursday 13 December. Adults, you can join in, too!

Reception Christmas Production

The hall was a vision of festive colour when Reception performed their Christmas production of The Inn-spectors. The children sang their songs beautifully and delivered their lines in loud, clear voices. They clearly enjoyed performing and it was a fantastic start to the festive period.

Christmas Cakes in Cooking Club

Cooking club have been busy over the last few weeks making their very own mini Christmas cakes. What a very professional job they have done!

A Trip to the Polka Theatre

Years 1 and 2 had a lovely morning on Thursday visiting the Polka Theatre to see the ‘Wind in the Willows’. The children were enthralled by the puppets, costumes and funny characters. There was laughter, clapping and much excitement, particularly at the end when everyone got showered with snow! It was a most enjoyable Christmas treat!

Sugar, Spice and all Things Nice!

As part of the Christmas festivities, gingerbread men were laid out in the hall for the children to decorate. They had great fun decorating their biscuits with sweets and icing. It is amazing how many sweets can fit onto one gingerbread biscuit! Many thanks to PROFS for organising the afternoon and thank you to the children for their donations to the Albaraca Nursery.

Gingerbread decorating in the Lower School

This will take place on the morning of Monday 10 December. Please remember to bring £2 donation for the Albaraca Nursery

Years 1 and 2 – Carol Concert

It was the turn of childen in Years 1 and 2 to spread the festive cheer this morning in the first of their two concert performances. It began with the orchestra playing ‘Prospect Camel Ride’ followed by a range of Christmas songs, in which the children all sang beautifully. The readings were also delivered loudly and clearly – very impressive indeed. We look forward to the next performance on Tuesday!

Orchard House Football Festival

Year 5 girls thoroughly enjoyed the Orchard House football festival. Well done to the ‘A’, ‘B’ and ‘C’ teams who came away with a total of 6 wins, 2 draws and 2 losses. Excellent teamwork, girls!

Netball – Years 3 and 4

The girls in Years 3 and 4 have loved netball this term. Their ball skills and footwork have developed so much; they are beginning to play some superb netball. There has been great improvement, which is evident when watching them play matches. Keep up the good work!
