Thank you to all the wonderful hard work both the children and staff put in to make this concert as successful as it was.
Thank you also to all of the families that managed to come along to celebrate the children's hard work and fully get behind this project.
Please find below photographs of the concert.
Both Matilda W and Harriet S were selected as 'Highly Commended' and not only received a certificate and a postcard of their work,
but also a small signed original piece of artwork
created by the head judge - Dale Devereux Barker .
Harriet T, Sadie L, Sonny H-B, Flora A, Ava O'H, Rory H, Geordie F
also had their artwork displayed.
A massive well done again to the lucky children!
We had a super take-up for the competition at school this year and the judges found it very hard to select from the high quality submitted.
I look forward to seeing the entries for next year!
As our school is a member of the Jamie Oliver's Kitchen Garden Project,
today Squirrels class used one of their recipes (adapted slightly)
and created Banana muffins. Yummy!!
Owls class will be performing with their clarinets
during the Summer term Music concert.
The Concert is a collection of Music, Dance & Drama pieces
performed by some of this year's Festival winners. It is a wonderful opportunity to watch some winning Performance Arts work
from our region and to inspire others in this area.
We have a small exhibition of children's art work,
in the children's book area within the Hadleigh Library.
Please pop past and have a look!
I will be changing the display every few weeks.

Yesterday Badgers class were lucky enough to watch a live performance of 'Alfie Strange' in conjunction with The New Wolsey Theatre.
Alfie Strange was the story of an (aged 8 ¼) boy, whom gets stucked in a book and how he escapes it. During Alfie's adventures he meets lots of characters related to British history, bringing in our ' British Values'.
Badgers had a great time!
