Our Reception and Key Stage 1 children enjoyed an afternoon drumming session led by Joe from Rhythm Instinct to enhance their learning about African culture. Thank you to our Friends of School for providing the funding for this to happen.

We are so proud of Year 6!

The Year 6 pupils involved in this week’s SATs showed great courage and determination in completing the tests to the best of their ability. They all maintained a positive attitude throughout the week and were a great support to one another. Another example of our School values in action. We are really proud of you – you have worked so hard!

School values in action

Well done to our Year 5/6 footballers who represented Christian Malford at the Small Schools Tournament held at Seagry School on Saturday morning. The whole team played really well, displaying great sportsmanship and upholding all of our School values. The team finished in fourth place after a very close game in the third and fourth place play-off match.

Our team were coached by Mr Kennedy and Mr White – so thanks go to them for their hard work in preparing the team. Thank you also to those parents who came along and supported.

The Terrible Tudors!

To conclude our Tudor topic, our Key Stage 2 children joined Key Stage 2 from Seagry and Somerfords’ Walter Powell for a theatre trip to the Wyvern, Swindon to see Horrible Histories: The Terrible Tudors!

It was exciting to watch just three actors bring the Tudor times alive. The whole show was fast paced and very entertaining. Everyone loved putting on the 3-D glasses to watch a whole host of special effects including cannon balls from the Spanish Armada being fired at the audience. A great time was had by all!

Celebrating Easter

We held our Easter service at the church this afternoon. Each year group contributed to the service: Willow sang about a growing seed, Maple led the prayers, Hazel recited a poem and Chestnut recounted the story of the Three Trees. As usual, the singing was amazing and the whole service was led by the children with Mrs Bloomer, our Lay Minister, reminding us about the importance of Easter.

Thank you to our Friends of School for serving refreshments back at school after the service. We also thank them for organising the Easter egg colouring competition with winners from each year group.

What a busy week!

We have packed so much into one week: Key Stage 2 children spent a day with the children from Seagry and Somerfords’ Walter Powell for Shakespeare Day where they took part in a whole range of activities from drama and music to mask making and programme design. We have had a visit from the Fire Service telling us to keep safe in the event of a fire and Willow Class had the special treat of stopping off at the play park on the way back from their Welly Walk.

Not long until the Scarecrow Trail

The annual Christian Malford Scarecrow Trail is taking place next weekend – Saturday 30th and Sunday 31st March. It’s always a great event whatever the weather so we look forward to seeing lots of visitors over the course of weekend trying to work out the which musical of stage or screen the scarecrows represent.

We do still need volunteers to help out on both days, either at school or the recreation ground to serve refreshments or sell raffle tickets and trail sheets. If you are able to help out you will find the sign-up sheet in the foyer, or if you can’t get into school, contact the office.

If you are not able to help out at the weekend, you can help out in other ways too such as donating items for the children’s tombola, buying raffle tickets or donating cakes for the refreshments.

75% of the funds raised to will go to Christian Malford Primary School and Acorns Preschool, but there will also be a donation of 12.5% to a Christian Malford community project and 12.5% to a local charity chosen by one of the sponsors.
