The new website looks excellent as I am sure you will agree! Please bear with me as I get my head around the new layout! 


We have been working really hard on our production. It's called 'Goodbye, my Friend' and revolves around four friends leaving their primary school.  


All the children have their scripts and should be learning these lines as quickly as possible. I can tell parents and other family members/friends are helping people because some of the expression is lovely. I have loved watching the improvements as the rehearsals go on. We are going to go to the hall to practice for the first time next week as our dress rehearsal is three weeks from today! More details will follow. 


Thank you for returning your parent consultation slips in such a timely manner. 


The homework this week is to learn lines! I really hope the children make a small study of this and read the stage directions carefully to ensure they are all ready for when we get into the business-end of rehearsals. 


Have a great weekend.


Mr Steenvoorden 




​It's been a very literacy-heavy week this week. We have been working on re-interpreting classic children stories and some of the ideas have been fantastic! We have the Three Little Pigs set in space, lots of fairy tale characters converging and having their own adventures and lots of other unique and fascinating twists that have come from the imagination of the children. 


There have been many visits from secondary school teachers and the children have made good first impressions and are beginning to show how ready they are to make the step up. 


Preparation for the production is beginning imminently - watch this space!


Reader of the week is Ciara, well done Ciara! ​Have a great weekend......Mr. Steenvoorden
