Easter Egg Hunt

Year 1 and Year 2 had great fun taking part in their egg hunt in the Rose Garden. No-one spotted the Easter Bunny, but Rafael Rey-Jones found the chocolate Easter chick!

Thornbury Eisteddfod Results

Speech & Drama
On Saturday a large number our our children took part in the Speech and Drama Eisteddfod in Thornbury. They performed very well indeed and had a very positive experience in the hands of the adjudicator, Rebecca Thompson. The children all had great courage in a range of different classes including Poetry Recital, Duo Poetry, Reading Aloud, Story-Telling, Shakespeare Solo and Acting. There were many notable achievements and the children coped very well with the pressure which they must have been feeling. The adjudicator spelled out how important it was to be able to stand up in front of an audience you have not met before and perform publicly and described this as an essential life skill. We hope to have just as much enthusiasm for the Eisteddfod next year and congratulate all of the children for their determination, courage, application, reliability and good sportsmanship. Well done!

We had some fantastic results in the Music section of the Thornbury Eisteddfod. A few of the highlights are listed below.
