Mr Shepherd led a lovely Christmas concert today. Thank you to all who were able to come and support us and even join in!
The children sang and played so well on their ukuleles. They played Jingle Bells and sang along with two chord changes using the chords F and C7. They also sang Winter Wonderland, Somewhere Only We Know and Last Christmas.
Mr Shepherd did comment that it was some of the best singing he has heard this season! 😃 👍🏼 🎵

“Brilliant songs like ‘Little Donkey’, ‘What have we got in our dressing up box’, ‘Tragedy’ and ‘Angels’.”

Why did they draw these things..?
How did they create the pictures..? What could they have used..?
Today, we turned up to school wearing odd socks on purpose! Why would we do that? We wanted to express ourselves and celebrate what makes us unique and special. We thought about our similarities, differences and strengths! Take a look at the photos:
