This week we all enjoyed Transition children’s performance in Chapel in their end of year Thanksgiving service. They recalled some of their memories from the year, sang wonderfully, recited poems and talked about things they are looking forward to next year. Every child played their part brilliantly and all the Transition staff were very proud of the children’s achievements. Thank you, Transition!

On Tuesday morning, the three Reception classes were very excited to take part in their end of year assembly in front of parents and friends in Chapel. The assembly was based on what the children had been learning about during the recent “Commonwealth” theme week. Each class concentrated on one Commonwealth country. The children had also been thinking more broadly about the similarities and differences between countries in terms of language and culture and what it meant to be a small part of a big world. The assembly began with a rousing rendition of “We Can Make a Difference”. RB then encouraged audience participation in a new game show called “Guess that (Commonwealth) Sport” before telling us what they knew about Canada. RM shared their knowledge about Australia including an insight into Australian sports, art and animals and singing a “Kookaburra” song. RS enlightened us about New Zealand, showing some Maori sand art before scaring the audience with an enthusiastic traditional Haka. The children all sang “He’s got the Whole World in his Hands”. The children and staff have worked extremely hard and were thrilled to share the assembly with their parents. Well done, Reception!
