Jack and the Bean Stalk.
On Tuesday 19th January the whole school piled on to three coaches and set of to the Alhambra Theatre Bradford for our annual pantomime trip. Apart from a major road closure causing us to arrive late, great fun was had by all. Thank you to The Friends for subsidizing the trip and making it more affordable for all our parents. Here are a few photos of the performance.
On Friday 4th March we held a Fairtrade Breakfast in the school hall. All the children and their parents were invited and over 120 breakfasts were served! There were lots of Fairtrade products to try, such as jam, chocolate spread, honey, muesli bars, fresh and dried fruits and fruit juice. We also had locally produced yogurts and sheep's milk. The breakfast was held to raise awareness of the benefits of buying fairly traded foods.
Classes 1 and 2 have been delighting us with their performance of Midwife Crisis. Telling us the familiar story of Jesus' birth, but with a twist! A very bossy midwife thinks that all babies need her but she discovers that she needs baby Jesus!

National Anti Bullying Week
As part of National Anti Bullying week the children came to school dressed in black and white. They then spent the day learning all about what behaviour is bullying and what is not. We learnt how to respond to bullies and how we can help others who we think are being bullied. We also learnt that bullies can change and learn how to be good friends.
At 11.a.m on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, we all went into the hall to pay our respects to all the people who have died, or were injured, in all the wars. We prayed for them and their families and also prayed for peace and help to be peace makers.
We celebrated our Harvest Festival this year on Thursday 24th October. Each class performed some songs which they had been perfecting during their music lessons with Mrs Dickinson this half term. We also had some beautiful music from our recorder and guitar groups. Our Harvest collection this year was for items for the Clitheroe area Food Bank. This charity provides emergency food parcels for families or individuals who have been referred by an official agency. We were amazed and overwhelmed by the generosity of our children and parents. Thank you!
