All the children went to see Dick Whittington at Buxton Opera House yesterday. They had a brilliant time and enjoyed the performance, it was great to see all our children together having fun. Two of our younger pupils even got chance to take part on the stage with Dick Whittington, what an experience.
The choir visited Oakford Manor today to sing to the residents. They started in the lounge, then went to the rooms of those residents unable to get to the lounge so no one missed out. The residents loved it and some even had tears of joy. So proud of our choir.
Our choir went to sing for the local OAP’s at their Christmas lunch at the Queens Public House in Old Glossop. Father Christmas also paid a visit which was great. The choir were (as usual) amazing, and one of the audience commented “How do you get them to sing so beautifully?” I hope someone told them it was down to Mr Steane’s hard work – thank you Mr, Steane.
Our choir went to Corn Mill House this week to sing for the residents. The residents absolutely loved it and were hugging the children afterwards and said the singing was “simply outstanding”. After singing the children spent time talking to the residents, which they really enjoyed.
As the topic in Class 2 comes to an end the children spent the day as Romans. The children have loved this terms topic and had fun dressing up.
Thank you to the children, staff and parents who attended the Christmas Market in Gamesley tonight, the choir sounded great.
Class 4 are having a stall at our Christmas fair/disco. One of the items on the stall will be ‘name the gnome’ . The gnome will be in the playground from Tuesday and its £1.00 a go with the winner being announced at the Christmas fair, and they get to keep the gnome. All proceeds go to the school’s.
The children attended Mass at St. Margaret’s today to celebrate the feast of St. Margaret. The Mass was lovely and the parents and Parishioners congratulated the children.
