Every Friday we have a celebration assembly where we celebrate children’s achievements, both in and out of school, in many different areas.
Each week the class teacher selects a child to be presented with the ‘Child of the Week,’ ‘Star Writer’ and ‘Handwriting’ (fortnightly) award.
We also have awards from the lunch time staff, attendance awards, best line awards, Lexia reading awards and individual star chart achievements as well as celebrating sporting events.This is also an opportunity to celebrate childrens’ birthdays’ as a school.
It’s really exciting hearing about the good things people have done.
– Ioana P, Year 6
Our Harvest festival on Friday 19th October was super. The children all worked hard and made us all proud with their performances. It was lovely to see so many adults attend. Thank you to all who donated foodstuffs for the Hereford Open Door charity. The charity supports individuals and families who may be homeless or in financial need, by providing cooked breakfasts, some hot meals and food parcels to supplement low incomes.
It was so lovely to see every child in school involved in the harvest.
Class R and 4 - Miracle in Town
Class R and 4 joined forces to perform their fantastic nativity called 'Miracle in town.' The acting and narrators were super and the singing was amazing. They all did a brilliant job learning all their lines and the songs. They all did a fantastic job and it was wonderful to watch.
Class 2 - Lights, Camel, Action!
Class 2 took a modern take on the nativity story in the style of Strictly Come Dancing named Lights, Camel, action! There was lots of humour as well as the traditional tale of Christmas. The children were superb. Their singing, dancing and acting was wonderful to watch and the children all worked really hard. Great job class 2 (and Mrs Motley as the star).
Christmas Carol Concert
The children of Class 6 were responsible for leading our Carol Service in St Michael’s Church on Thursday 20th December. They told us the story behind Christmas and narrated throughout.
The Carol Service also included songs from the Reception, Class 2 and Class 4 Christmas plays.
Mrs Ashmead and Mrs Prowse taught the children many different Christmas Carols and songs that were inserted between the readings to make our Carol Service special. The concert finale was a fantastic Christmas nativity addition of the famous Queen song Bohemian Rapsody. It was absolutely amazing.
Great job everyone.
Class 6 - Young Voices
On Thursday 28th February class 6 treated us to a number of songs they had performed at Birmingham NEC's Young Voices concert. They sang their hearts out and had some super dance moves to go with them. The children seemed to be thoroughly enjoying themselves as were the adults. I can't wait to go next year. I think the word used rather frequently was, "AWESOME!!!"
Class 2 - Henry VIII
On Thursday 14th March class 2 replicated the popular entertainment programme Take Me Out with the twist being that the eligible bachelor was King Henry VIII. We have been studying him as part of our topic on the English monarchy. Eleven lovely lasses heard from Henry's friends and family and were then left to decide if they would like to date him or not. Following round four, one lady, Catherine Parr, was left and so she became Henry's next wife. The children all worked really hard and were super. We had lots of fun and the children learned lots too.
What a fantastic assembly today.
I love history and thought this was such a clever way to learn all about Henry Vlll and his wives.
Sophie and me are planning to watch a program tonight all about him, as the work you have been doing in class has got her so interested.
As a parent I know I speak for many of us, that the hard work going into these by the staff, is clear to see in the enjoyment and enthusiasm of our children as they perform. They are a joy to watch.

Mother's day assembly
As always our Mother’s day assembly (Thursday 28th March) was super and each class contributed. Class R told us why they love their mums, class 2 recited a poem they had written, class 4 sang a funny song and class 6 sang the famous song, 'I'm a believer,' whilst all playing the ukulele. The school also sang a selection of songs. It was very touching and a wonderful way to say thank you to all the special ladies in our lives for all they do. Hope you all get spoiled rotten on Sunday.
