Pupils from years five and six visited St Cuthbert’s Great Glen Primary School this week to take part in a writing workshop with Harriet Goodwin. She gave tips of writing stories and provided inspiration about vocabulary choices. Thank you to Mrs Hayward for accompanying the pupils.
The pupils have been learning about how to stay safe when learning using the internet as part of Safer Internet Day. This included considering how to use avatars and online identities and how to talk to trusted adults about things that might be worrying them about using the internet.
As part of the Spark Festival, a celebration of the arts taking place in Leicester during February, we were delighted to welcome an IndoJazz band to perform to the children. The band introduced their different instruments and explained the role they play in creating the wonderful music performed to the audience. Instruments included some which the pupils can learn at school like drums and saxophone and other instruments that were new to them like the tabla. A big thank you to Mrs Pemberton, one of our art technicians for organising the performance and to Friends of Church Langton School who funded the experience for the pupils.
It was a pleasure to see our year five and six pupils performing at the Birmingham Arena this week as part of the Young Voice Concert. Singing as part of a choir of six thousand pupils, they performed a wide selection of songs and supported a various acts including Tony Hadley from Spandau Ballet. A big thank you to Mr Kirkland, Mrs Edwards, Mrs House, Mrs Jones and Mrs Russell for organising, accompanying and performing with the children.
