Year 3 trip to Clonter Opera!, by Miss Young

Date: 20th Sep 2017 @ 2:13pm

On Tuesday, we came to school full of jumping beans! We took a short bus journey to Clonter Opera and we were all very excited. When we arrive, we were taken into a rehearsal room and met a lady called Laura who was the musical director! She introduced us to some of her friends who were opera singers. They taught us some of their songs and we joined in and sang beautifully!

After we had exhausted ourselves learning lots about opera and the amazing songs, we were given some yummy juice and biscuits! After our refreshments, we went into a designing space that hard chairs fit for a Queen! There was a mini opera stage set out in the shape of a small cardboard box. We all designed our own stage thinking about different themes such as a spooky house or a tropical island. We then worked as a group to make our own miniature set. After we had finished we had the chance to choose our own lighting that we thought would be appropriate for out set.

We stopped and had a quick break for lunch just in time to be seated in the fabulous auditorium ready to watch a little bit of the opera. We watched the 4 people we met in the morning perform and they were amazing. At the end we had a singing competition against some other schools and we joined in with the opera singers. They said it was a draw!

We had an absolutely fantastic day and we even showed our singing in assembly!

Year 3 visit Church and Baptize the class baby, by Mrs Knibbs

Date: 29th Mar 2017 @ 1:28pm

We went to Church and met the vicar who taught us about Baptizm and how you have water put on your head in a cross and you say a prayer. We held baby Bob so he could be baptized, this allows him to be welcomed into the Christian faith (but, you can still be a Christian if you have not been baptized) It also allows God to forgive you when you are older. 

Report written by Dad aka Teague Forward Martin and Mum aka Lillia Barnett 

We were the Godparents and so got to sit at the front of the Church, we baptized two baby dolls, and we looked for our names in Jesus' handbook, if we had been baptized then our names would be in the book. We found a few of the children's names in our class. We got taught all about what the vicar has to prepare for a baptism and we really enjoyed our roles as Godparents.
