The Giant Sing

On Monday 30 children from years 3 to 6 travelled to The Anvil Theatre in Basingstoke. They took part in an exciting mass vocal event performing the musical adaptation of Oscar Wilde's story The Happy Prince.

It was a great trip and wonderful to be a part of a live musical performance. Well done to all the children for their singing and excellent behaviour.

Murphy Our Reading Dog's Blog 10 March 2017

Hi there
Hey hey hey!  Year 6 today!
Alex the Dog and the Unopenable Door was first up today, and I heard how Matthew was late for his first day at school - and he was the new headteacher!
The Warlock's Staff was next, and Brenner met a stranger in a cloak who had a rosewood wand set with real ivory teeth!
Then I listened to Horrible Histories - Smashing Saxons, and I learned that King Offa was so powerful, he had his men dig a ditch between England and Wales which was 169 miles long!  You can still see some of it today and it's called Offa's Dyke.
Next was Destination Earth, where Jay had cut his calf and had used towels as bandages - Mum's best white ones!  Oops!
Alex Rider's Snakehead was up next, where Ash and Alex had to take on new identities - Karim and Abdul Hussein.  I'd like to take on a new identity - I'd be a sausage roll tester at Greggs!
Then I listened to another Alex Rider book, Eagle Strike, where there was a serious gas leak on holiday in France which injured Alex's friend Sabina's father, and Alex was forced to go on another mission.
Last today was  The Midnight Gang, where Tom was wearing a frilly pink nightdress.  Oh no!  That reminded me of last week where Mum dressed me in those underpants - unnatural, unflattering and undogly, I say!

Restaurant visit

Three children from Year 6, Libby, Libby and Ashley were invited to look around a local restaurant- Le Chanteclerc in Cadnam. They were shown the kitchen and how the chefs prepare food for the customers. The chefs were in the middle of a real service and the girls saw how the food was cooked and then plated up.

The chef/owner also took them on a tour of the restaurant and the hotel. He talked about how he was trained and some of the restaurants he had worked in. They were treated to a glass of coke and were also able to try a dessert. It was a fantastic insight into life in a restaurant. website restaurant 



The Little Princess

Last week M&M Productions came to Calmore to deliver their show The Little Princess.

Sara Crewe is a young girl who seems to have everything her heart could wish for; she is loved and doted on by her father, and attending the best school that his money can buy- Miss Minchin’s Academy for Girls.  

However, fate takes a turn for the worst, leaving her penniless and totally dependent on the charity of her headmistress. Cruelly exploited by the merciless Miss Minchin and school bully Lavinia, Sara, and her friend Becky; the scullery maid, try to smile though their troubles and are helped by the magical intervention of her Eastern guardian angel, the mysterious Mr Ramdass. with its strong anti-bullying message and themes of friendship, understanding and inclusion.

Many a child were seen wiping a tear from their eye through the sad and really chuckling at the funny bits.
