Pantomime in School
On the afternoon of 14th January, we have this year’s Pantomime – Aladdin. All children from Reception to Year 6 can watch the performance, which has proved highly popular and very entertaining in Years previous. We are asking for a voluntary contribution of £4 per child this is much cheaper than us taking all the children to the theatre to watch a performance. Please make payment through ParentMail. Unless we hear otherwise we will presume you give consent for your child to watch the performance.
Art Week and Gallery Information.
During the week commencing Monday 13th January, we will be focusing all of our work across the curriculum on a ‘Take One Picture’ project. This is centred on the picture Composition VIII by Wassily Kandinsky. The selected pieces of work from this week will be presented at an Academy Gallery which parents will be able to visit on Tuesday 28th January; more information will be released soon.
We are running a Trust Competition asking children to use their art and design skills to create a shoebox creation with Kandinsky’s Composition VIII as their inspiration. You can decorate inside the box, or just the lid – be as creative as you can with this abstract piece! The prize winners will be on show in our Gallery for all to see! We hope you will thoroughly enjoy participating in this. Please ensure that you hand in your entry to your class teacher by Friday 17th January 2019. Good Luck – we look forward to seeing the entries!
We will also be having a Kandinsky Gallery on Friday 17th January at 3:15pm in the Studio for parents and children to enjoy the work that has been created by all of the Junction Farm pupils. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to contact school.
The children returned back to Early Years with fantastic attitudes this week and have all worked extra hard as we begin our ‘Under the Sea’ topic.
The staff have loved listening to the children share their experiences from over the Christmas holidays.
