Chinese New Year! 🎉🏮🎊🇨🇳👘

The whole school had an absolute ball celebrating Chinese New Year! Calligraphy, Chinese paper folding, lantern making and traditional lion dancing were just some of the excellent activities taking place around the school. A huge thank you to all the parents who supported the day; it was clear a huge effort had been made judging by the fantastic outfits the children arrived to school in. A whole school Lion Dance performance, courtesy of the Manchester Chinese Cultural Centre, left children completely mesmorised; some of our staff and children also had the opportunity to take part in it too. Have a peek at some of the highlights in the video below.

From the Old to the New…

Children from Year 2, Miss Lavelle’s class, today led us in an assembly which focussed upon how God will always be with us as we travel along the journey of life. They showed us how far they have come on their Christian journey and talked about their hopes for the future. The first video below explains some of the pupils’ aspirations, the second how we must have high hopes!

 

 

 

Wriggly Nativity!

This morning, pupils and parents alike were treated to an excellent re-telling of the nativity story. Children from our nursery and reception classes led a superb performance which included many wonderful songs, brave acting and (of course!) lots of ‘wriggling’. See if you can watch the excerpts below without wriggling yourself!

 

Priscus vs. Verus: A Fight to Remember!

Last week in Literacy, Class 9 and 10 re-enacted the famous gladiator battle between Priscus and Verus. Children played the roles of the gladiators, Emperor Titus and the notorious Colosseum crowd. The children made note of the atmosphere and how each of the gladiators were feeling to support them in writing a newspaper article of the event.
