This involves all the children in the school from YR to Y6. This major production takes place in the summer term every other year - the next performance is in 2017! We have various production dates, in the afternoon and the evening. Tickets are sold for the performances.
Carols round the Tree
This is a KS2 evening event (Y3-6) which takes place around Christmas time in the evening. Children are invited by the school to perform musical, drama and singing pieces to an audience of parents, friends and family. The PTA kindly provide mulled wine and mince pies and it’s a chance to sing some Christmas carols to get us in the mood for Christmas. Although all parents are invited, it tends to be those with children performing who attend.
Children Christmas Parties
Christmas parties take place in school time to give the children a chance to celebrate with their friends. Children can bring in their own party clothes to change into and party food is provided by parents. They are involved in party games, dancing and for KS2 a talent contest!
These take place at different times of the year at the church in Long Sutton. All the staff and children walk down to the church to join in the church service together. Depending on the service theme, parents are sometimes invited to join in with us in the church.
Once a year we have a school sports afternoon for all the children. It take place in the early summer and all children are invited to compete in different events to win points for their houses. The winning house at the end of the afternoon wins the sports club. The PTA kindly provide refreshments and cakes for all parents to enjoy while watching the event.
Every class takes part in their own assembly to perform to their parents and children in the school. The assembly informs the audience about a topic they have been working on and ends with a class prayer. Family and friends of the children in the class are invited to attend. This usually takes place on an afternoon for approximately 20 minutes.
There are two parents’ evenings throughout the year and an additional one for children in YR. They are run on two days, one late afternoon and the second for later in the evening. Parents are encouraged to bring their children to the meetings. If they prefer not to, there is a film playing in the school hall.
KS1 Christmas Play
The children in KS1 (YR-3) are involved in a Christmas Play. The play takes place over 3 afternoons, allowing parents and friends to attend and watch. Parents are often asked to help with costumes.
Twice a year we have a school grounds morning where we invite parents and children to join together to tidy up the grounds for the next season. It is a fun event where we all work together, rewarded with refreshments and snacks.
