The final week of term has been, as always, very busy. The production of Oliver has taken a lot of time up but the results have been worth the effort. We are so proud of all our children for the dedication they have shown towards learning either their lines or the songs. During the Christmas party on Thursday, the classes asked to have the Oliver songs on and the singing was electrifying.
3B have been looking at poetry this week. The children selected either a tongue twister, a longer poem or a short story/poem to practise and recite. They then also wrote their own seasonal tongue twister.
Unfortunately this morning, Mr Beevers and Miss Micklethwaite were in a “meeting” and so were unable to attend the surprise pantomime that all the whole school enjoyed. (Mr Harris’s blog has more details and pictures.) Reports from the actors were that they loved being in the show, with the audience’s reactions the highlight of the morning. It is always great to see the children having fun, especially having worked so hard.
Finally, it has been a very sad day for all in Year 3, staff especially, as today was Miss Micklethwaite’s final day at the school. Miss Micklethwaite has been a superb person to work with. She has so much energy and zest and always puts the children at the forefront of everything she does. We will miss her tremendously but wish her all the best in her future life, what ever she does and where ever she goes.
Have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year.
The Year 3 team.
