Youth Speaks Triumph!

Well done to our Youth Speaks teams who “aimed high” and yet again impressed both judges and audience.

Firstly a HUGE well done to three individuals who WON their categories: Trinity won Best Speaker, Cameron won Best Vote of Thanks and Alfie won Best Chairperson. This is an incredible feat against tough competition – well done!

Not only that but one Bampton team won the whole round!

Congratulations to Alfie, Trinity and Finley, who impressed the judges with their topic on “Why more girls should love Maths”. Next stop – Barnstaple for the regional finals!

Everyone who took part should feel very proud of themselves, as each and every one of you challenged yourself to try something new. It’s scary standing up in front of an audience and you all did brilliantly.

It’s a great competition to be involved in and we are all so proud of you!!

A Victorian Christmas at Knightshayes

Hedgehog class were treated to a wonderfully festive time at Knightshayes Court when they visited the big house. They learned all about a Victorian Christmas, made some Satsuma Pomanders which smelt delightful and talked about decorations. It was a brilliant way to learn about how traditions have changed over the years.

 

A King is Born!

Our Key Stage One play “A King is Born” was a great success and enjoyed by everyone who saw it!

Well done to Squirrel and Hedgehog class, who kept us all entertained with plenty of songs, stories and some “epic hashtags”!

The played opened with a festive Christmas Eve scene, as a family sit around their Christmas tree, drinking hot chocolate. They listen to the real story of Christmas and think about how everyone must have felt. How did Mary and Joseph feel as they entered bustling Bethlehem? Were the shepherds very scared on the hillside that night? How did the Wise Men travel so far without GPS?! Most importantly; what does the birth of Jesus mean for us today? Mr Carter, Miss Diggle and everyone has found it’s been great fun putting it together and a lovely way of the children understanding a little bit more about the story.
