Over the past few weeks, children throughout the school have been carrying out work around various Julia Donaldson books, including The Gruffalo.
Across the afternoon, children took part in a variety of themed activities, including a Gruffalo trail – where they followed the path the Gruffalo set out to solve a puzzle.
Later, the Gruffalo himself arrived and keenly met all the children – posing for photographs and helping award prizes to the best dressed children.
Deputy Headteacher, Mr Coyne commented, “The afternoon was a huge success, with the highlight definitely being the visit of the Gruffalo. Children have been inspired reading a range of Julia Donaldson’s books over the past few weeks and this proved a great culmination to their work.”
The 'Office' section of our website is now open with all the letters given out in school to download - just in case one may not have made it home!
It was a fantastic experience, comparing our choirs with others in the competition. It was a successful day, as we achieved a Merit and learnt many things, especially about our ability to sing
Singing in front of all those people was extremely nerve-wracking but we all sang our best. As a result we came joint 3rd: a fantastic achievement as our choir is so small
I enjoyed performing at the King’s School as it was a fantastic experience for the choir. We came out with 83 marks – a Merit! I especially enjoyed singing ‘Over the rainbow’ with Kacey.
We went to the King’s School to do a competition. I sang ‘Over the rainbow’ with Eleanor and I loved it!
When we went to the Music Festival we had wake up very early as we had to be there by 9.00a.m. I really enjoyed it!
I really enjoyed it!
We sang amazingly well. I was very nervous. King’s is a big school!
