Today, as I worked in my office, I heard music being played from the FSU outside area. I went to look out the window to see what was happening and there were about ten Big Acorns, each with different instruments, working together to create their own music. It was wonderful to watch. There was a conductor trying to organise the group and they were all working hard to work together.
They were so joyful in what they were doing; skipping around the space, jumping, twirling and genuinely enjoying what they were doing and the noise they were making. There was rhythm in what they were creating and finally they came together to do a rendition of ‘Jingle Bells’. At the end of the song, they all disappeared back inside. Not only had it brought happiness to them as a group but it also brought happiness to myself and other staff members in the staff room at that time; and that is the power of music, of any kind. It was lovely to hear.
Have a lovely weekend.
Happy New Year to all our families!
As you will now know, the school has its retained ‘Good’ rating in our recent Ofsted Inspection. This is something that I know you will join us in celebrating. It is a real achievement and it is something that has been achieved together. Well done, congratulations and thank you to every member of the team, to all of the children, to all of the governors and to all of you; you have worked with us and supported your child/children in so many ways.
I want to take this opportunity to welcome the new families who have joined us this term. We are so pleased you are with us and we hope you will be very happy in our school.
Have a wonderful weekend
Well done to all of KS2! The Christmas Concert this week were brilliant. Each one of you
contributed to make these performances so wonderful. The singing was magical and my personal
favourite was ‘Listen’; I loved how the song ended by becoming quieter and quieter.
It was so good to have so many of us in the church together; thank you parents, carers,
grandparents and so many other family members for coming to join us at this time.
Have a wonderful weekend!
