Guitar Concert
 
Our guitarists, who learn with the wonderful Pete York, performed for parents after school on Thursday, 14th December.
 
Anyone interested in learning the guitar with Pete should contact Mrs Pargeter. Mrs Pargeter said: "To have so many pupils performing at once is truly inspirational. We are so lucky to have found Pete."

Author Visit

Earlier this year, Years 3 and 4 were very excited to have a visit from local author Sam Watkins. Sam is the author of the Darcy Dolphin stories as well as the Creature Teacher series. The newest book in the Darcy Dolphin series is The Fintastic Diary of Darcy Dolphin - a brilliantly funny and beautifully illustrated story. It tells of a young dolphin and her underwater adventures. These include, getting her first pet, auditioning for the role of Finderella in the school play and solving a mystery on the reef. Sam read the first few chapters to the children and talked about where her story ideas came from. Sam told us she has always loved dolphins and as a very young child, she was convinced there was a real dolphin swimming around her local pond and she wished she could own it as her pet! Sam spent time chatting about other sea creatures and the children were very keen to ask questions and share their own knowledge. The children really enjoyed their visit and were very keen to buy and read more of Sam’s books. It was a great way to encourage them to read for enjoyment and pleasure.
