Things to enjoy
I Believe in Unicorns
Back in the Autumn Term we had a visit from the amazing Theatre Alibi who performed I Believe in Unicorns by Michael Morpurgo to everyone at school - and we absolutely loved it. The show had children and adults spellbound. I’m sure your children will remember it.
The wonderful team at Theatre Alibi have allowed us to see the production again online - well worth settling down with a cocoa.
The book does contain difficult themes as it’s set during World War Two in a country which was under occupation - but that is not the main message children took away from it. The message is one of a love of reading and story - the joy of being lost in a book so much that it becomes real to you. Enjoy the film.
Families have been sent the password you will need to access the film.
If you would like further information about the production, it’s available here.
Thank You to The Manor Hotel Pete, the Manager, deserves to be The Beacon’s Star of the Week for the donations of food and soft drink items which we delivered to some of our families today. Those who received a food parcel were very grateful.
Tadpoles and Frogs Coming soon... Take a look at Mrs Bartlett's garden pond and the frogs and tadpoles in it!
Our staff team know how to have fun too.... these photos were taken once everyone had left the playground as the school closed after our final playground performance by our Y6 children who learned songs from Matilda in one day! .
Snow White and the Seven Jockeys was due to be performed next week at the Blackmore Theater, Exmouth. Our children decided they'd put on Impromptu Playground Performances instead. To the many children who aren't in school - we miss you, but please sing along from home as you watch!
After our Year 3 and 4 children had performed, we invited everyone to join in! Living life in all its fullness (John 10:10) on our playground at pick up time! Well done everyone!
Year 2 read their Dragon Poems
Listen to some of the examples from the book and hear them read their own versions.
Sadly, I just missed a lovely photo of Y5 doing their maths in our garden today, but Mr Chalkely's looking forward to sharing ideas online.
Learn the 'Friends Across The Earth' song in Greek
On our recent Erasmus visit to Greece seven children from Year 6 learned to sing this song in Greek. Let's see if some more children can learn it too.
Here are the words of the song: greek-words.pdf
Below you can hear how the song should sound when you get it right: (Sung by Mary, a teacher from Grevena).
