Chocolate Performance Poetry!

Hazel class read the poem ‘Chocolate’ by Michael Rosen whilst having a block of Cadbury Dairy milk in their hand like in the poem! The children devoured the melted mess and then got into groups and performed a section of the poem. Each group evaluated and peer assessed a group’s performance. We considered the volume, pace, expression, rhythm, pausing where appropriate, use of sound effects and actions. The children had lots of fun and really improved their performance!

Mission Statement:

The relationship between the school, parents, pupils, governors and the community is vitally important. In September 2010 all these groups joined together to develop the mission statement for the school as it moved on into its next phase – to become outstanding. The mission statement encapsulates all these ideas and ambitions for the school.

As a church school our ethos reflects Christian moral values which build positive partnerships with families, local and global communities.

We aim to:

  • Provide an outstanding education for all pupils
  • Develop everybody’s unique personality, abilities and talents through creative learning experiences
  • Encourage confidence, independence and self-belief so that all individuals can reach their maximum potential
  • Embed within the school a culture of respect and care for each other and themselves
  • Instil a lifelong love of learning with the ability and desire to make God’s world a better place
