Speaking of confidence
This week has been incredible for so many reasons, but I think the highlight of the week for most people has to be the snow. We had a great time on Wednesday building snowmen and playing together as a school. Some of us did get a bit soggy and had to spend time drying socks next to the radiators - but it was definitely worth it!
Tuesday, lots of our children went to the Mid-Somerset Festival - performing spoken word poetry and/ or acting a duologue. It was amazing to hear about so many of our children speaking so confidently and clearly, and amazing to see children conquering nerves to give incredible performances as well. On Friday, a few children performed their pieces to the whole school in assembly - we were entertained with poetry, comforted by The Wizard of Oz, horrified by the ugly sisters and thoroughly enraptured with the disgusting antics of the Twits.
Our children from Years 3 and 4 also had the opportunity to take part in a performance from the Scenes from Shakespeare category. They have been working exceedingly hard during lunchtimes, not only learning but performing, so many lines of traditional language. They have teased us with the promise of watching their performance next week and we know it must be truly great as we have seen the massive trophy that they have won!
Choir have just over a week before they take their turn to shine and perform - I can't wait to see it!
