It's been a really incredible week at the Academy. Last Friday night, our school community came to support us at our Winter Fayre. The children had planned and made items for stalls which they sold in order to raise money for their classes and year groups. Father Christmas came to read stories to the children and the choir sang beautifully to get people into the festive mood. Over £1500 was raised and will be spent through the year to reduce the cost of curriculum trips and to buy items for curriculum enrichment. We would like to thank everyone who came to support as well as those who helped to prepare and run the event.
Our Year 2 pupils have definitely made us proud this week! They performed a Nativity play called 'A Midwife Crisis'. This was the first time in our memories that only one year group performed and they did an amazing job. Well done to the pupils for learning their roles, their cues and a vast array of songs. All funds raised from the tickets will be donated to a local charity, Dr Friers who look to support children in our community. Thank you to our children's family for support this event too. Finally, our choir will be performing in the School Choir Final at Downtown this Saturday (14th December) at 2.30pm. We wish them the best of luck.
