Olivia!

What a show the children put on both Tuesday and Wednesday evening! The children really raised the roof with their spectacular performance .

The play was based on the classic tale Oliver but with a modern day plot given the Stibbard touch!

We were treated to some fantastic songs sung with real gusto and some very brave solos which mesmerised the audience.

It was heartwarming to see all of the children put their all into the show. There were some brilliantly timed one liners and gags which really got the audience laughing out loud. The children were a credit to the school and to the Y5 and Y6 teachers and staff who have worked tirelessly to produce such a spectacular show. Hopefully some children may even be inspired to pursue a career in the arts.

All of the children should be tremendously proud of themselves; from the superb actors and actresses who acted their socks off, to the expert stage hands who ensured each scene was smoothly dealt with and of course the amazing musical/IT directors to really did make sure the show went on!

You were all amazing and ensured Olivia was a huge triumph!

Now the fat lady really has left the building!

Sun Safety in Reception

Now the weather is (hopefully!) warming up please can we ask that your child has a sun hat, drinks bottle (water only please!) and wearing sunscreen which has been applied before arrival to school in the morning.

Children may bring in their own sunscreen to reapply during the school day. We ask that your child is able to apply this to themselves. The ‘roller’ type sunscreens have been recommended to us and are particularly good for smaller hands – thank you very much to Millie’s mum for the recommendation.

PLEASE ENSURE EVERYTHING IS NAMED!

In the days ahead we will be spending lots of time outside practising for our upcoming sports day next week. Therefore the above is really important.

Thank you for your support with this.

Reception Team.

Reception Make Sushi

This morning has been a very exciting morning in Reception class. Our topic this term has been ‘Japan,’ We have enjoyed a lovely visit from Toby’s parents , Maurice and Tomika , who very kindly came in to make sushi with the children.

Tomika and Maurice gave a demonstration to the whole class showing us how to make the sushi first of all. They used seaweed, which Maurice told the children was called ‘nori’ in Japanese. We next used specially made sticky sushi rice that had rice wine vinegar added to it . The children had to get messy here and use their fingers to spread out the sticky rice on to the nori. Lastly we added some cucumber strips. Maurice and Tomika explained to the children that you can use all sorts of different ingredients in sushi making ; fish, vegetables and eggs were just a few. The children then split into smaller groups to work with Toby’s parents making their very own sushi. The children were so engrossed when it came to rolling the sushi in the special rolling mat. All of the children liked touching the sticky rice which got absolutely everywhere! The finishing touch was cutting the sushi rolls with Tomika’s special Japanese knife which Maurice explained was extremely sharp to cut the sushi.

We have had a splendid morning with Tomika and Maurice. They have provided the children with a wonderful experience which we are very grateful to them both for. Parents and carers, if you are lucky enough , you may get to sample some of the sushi your child has made . We cannnot promise though as many children devoured theirs straight after making!
