The Tempest

We are so very proud of ourselves for our performance of William Shakespeare’s – The Tempest at The Lights, Andover. We have received amazing feedback from our teachers and parents. It was a real achievement for us. Please have a look at the appraisal from the Shakespeare Schools Festival.

Compost makers

Today we made our compost makers. We recycled plastic bottles and brought in composting materials from home. It was a perfect way to recycle Halloween pumpkins! Also, we used leaves, soil, newspaper and cardboard tubing to create different layers. We will be watching them change during the course of the year. It is our ‘longitudinal study’ which is an observational research where data is gathered repeatedly over a period of time. We linked this to our work on micro-organisms as we know they help in the compost making process. We hope to have our very own compost at the end of the year!


Intra-school sports competition

On Thursday 18th October the team captains and vice captains organised a sports afternoon for Key Stage 2. Each of the teams took part in netball, tag rugby and football activities. Mr Hickman was really pleased with the organisation – it meant he didn’t have to do too much. Thank you to the children who used their time at break and lunchtime to prepare it all. We had a great time!


Cast Workshop day @ The Lights, Andover – Monday 1st October 2018

We have been busy learning our lines for Shakespeare’s : The Tempest. Monday 1st October was our cast workshop day where we visited the theatre and performed our opening scene. Tuesday 27th November is the date of our performance. We are so looking forward to it. Today was great fun. We had a behind-the-scenes tour and played some fun drama games to build our confidence in being in stage.


Macmillan Coffee Morning 2018 – Thursday 27th September

This year we raised money for three charities: Macmillan, Cancer Support, Abbie’s Army and The Brain Tumour Charity. In total we raised £412.15 through the coffee morning, selling cakes at break-time and after school. The school council invited people from the village by delivering leaflets to the houses. Year 6 pupils were waiters and waitresses! We are so proud of what we achieved.
