This week's assembly was held by none other than everyone's favourite superhero; Superman. If you want to join in with fancy dress why not have a root around at home and see what you can find and send us photos of yourself dressed up for Wacky Assembly Wednesday.
Mr Stewart started the assembly by telling us all that lots of exciting and positive things have been happening on our online community- great to hear all of our pupils are putting lots of effort in and producing some great work, not just as individuals but also as groups too. Brilliant work everyone!
We then heard that there is no school on Friday due to a very special occasion; VE Day. Mr Stewart told us all that whilst there won't be any lessons online, we can all still get involved with celebrating VE Day by partaking in the nation's 2 minute silence, or by joining in with the planned rendition of 'We'll Meet Again' at 9pm. It is important that we also make time to reflect and remember those who gave up their freedom and their lives for us many years ago.
Joshua Potts in Early Years has been raising money for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital by leaping over lots of Hot Wheels cars- he even has an exciting certificate to prove it! Well done Joshua- we are so proud of you!
Mrs Capewell then came onto assembly to read us a poem about hope- from a book by Katherine Rundell that has been put together to help us all through the pandemic and lockdown time. Thank you Mrs Capewell for sharing the lovely poem with us all.

Mr Pearson then came online to update us about his charity haircut raffle and told us already 118 raffle tickets have been sold. However it is not too late to take part- we have until 20th May to donate £5 to Mr Pearson's charity page to get a raffle ticket and the chance to design Mr P's next hair cut!

We were then treated to a very special performance of 'Hey Mr Miller' complete with actions and jazz hands from Mr and Mrs Westall, joined by their daughter Millie. How fantastic! We hope you were all singing and dancing along at home. A very big thank you to the Westall family for entertaining us all so fabulously- it has certainly brightened our afternoon.
SAs always keep sending us your photos and videos- we really are missing you all so very much and we love to see what you are all doing.
Take care and stay safe.
