Hot-seating Elliot the Midnight Superhero

The children were absolutely brilliant in our drama activities last week. Some of them chose to dress up as the Superhero (Elliot) in our story as they assumed the role of the main character. With great dramatic flair, and much laughter, the children asked and answered the questions that they had written for Elliot. Can you work out who our superheroes really are?

Christmas Fun

We’ve reached the end of term and it’s been so busy that I haven’t had a chance to blog! Please enjoy a selection of photos from our Christmas activities. I have included a range of photos: Christmas parties, a visit from Santa, Christmas shopping, Christmas dinner, our KS1 Christmas show, our school trip to the pantomime and posting our letters to Santa. It’s been a whirlwind the last few weeks, but thoroughly enjoyable. I was particularly proud of the children’s confident and outstanding performances both singing, speaking and acting in our Christmas show (Ralph the Reindeer) and playing the ocarinas and hand bells at carols at the gate. Have a lovely break everyone, and I’ll look forward to seeing you all in 2020. Merry Christmas!

World Book Day 2019

It was lovely to see the children so excited to wear their World Book Day costumes today. Straight after registration, the whole school congregated in the hall to admire each others’ costumes and posed for photos.
In class the children wrote book reviews for their favourite story books and planned and started to write stories of their own. The children loved being in role today, playing the parts of their characters, and this continued through break times too.

Local authors came to visit us too! The children were amazed to meet Mark, who owns The Sea Garden on Bexhill seafront. Mark and Barbara read part of their book, The Sea Elf and the Happy Stone, to the children and signed books. The atmospheric storytelling held the children captivated, especially since their story is set in Bexhill.

Thank you to Mark and Barbara for a magical storytelling session and thank you also to all the parents for making such an effort with the children’s costumes!
Year 2, what was your favourite part of the day?
