Big OPAL Saturday

The OPAL team would like to say an enormous THANK YOU to the families who dedicated their time to the Big OPAL Saturday. Our sandpit relocation involved moving the equivalent weight of 2 African elephants in sand! All of us at Colwall were also moved by your kindness and generosity. Thank you for making such a difference!

Wrens had a super trip to Caves Folly Nursery for seed planting. We are very grateful for the opportunity, thanks to Bridget, who will nurture our seeds as they germinate over the Easter holidays. We can’t wait to see what happens! We planted sunflowers, peas, beans and sweet peas. Watch this space!


Snapshot of the week

This week in RE, Year 2 have created beautiful Easter eggs that showcase what Easter symbolises. 

They have used all their learning about the Easter story and why Easter is important and created drawings that really encapsulate the meaning of Easter!

Year 4

Amazing Authors in Year 4!

We’ve been working on Wishing Tales for the last few weeks. Our toolkit has included: subordinate clauses, ‘showing not telling’ vocabulary to describe how the main character was feeling and building suspense through setting description/scary sounds.

In our last unit, we focused on fronted adverbials and expanded noun phrases which the children have incorporated into this piece of writing as well.

I hope you enjoy reading some of our writing!

Year 3 and 4 Play

This week, Year 3 and 4 have had the exciting task of performing their musical ‘Mystery at Magpie Manor’. Nerves and excitement were running high, but the children put on four fantastic performances across Tuesday and Wednesday, finishing with a final performance oh Wednesday to an audience of almost 100 people! The children started rehearsals for the show just after February half term, and have therefore had a very short amount of time to pull together the production. They really stepped up to the mark, learning lots of lines, songs and dance moves, with fantastic acting across the board. We are so proud of the brilliant performances of our amazing lower KS2 children on the stage and can’t wait to see their confidence and love of performing blossom and grow even more as they move up through the school. I’m sure that you will all agree that they did a superb job and even the likes of Lord Andrew Lloyd Webber would have had his socks blown off by their awesome performances! Thank you once again for all of your support with learning lines and providing such fantastic costumes – we really appreciate your hard work. A massive thank you also to Miss Chambers for her dedication to organising such a fabulous show.
