Hidden Hope

Congratulations to all the children that took part in the Rock Challenge event at The Southampton Guildhall before half term. Their portrayal of the story of Anne Frank moved many of the audience members to tears. The performance was truly stunning and as it came to an end you could have heard a pin drop in the auditorium-everyone was truly amazed by this fabulous, dramatic piece.

Thank you so much to all the staff and friends & family of staff who have worked so hard to rehearse, paint, sew costumes, order costumes, sort tickets ets We are SO lucky to have a staff team that all pull together for the benefit of your children. It simply could not happen without all their help. Thanks also to Mr Dickenson for doing the lighting-it looked amazing.

A special thanks must go to Miss Dunbar for creating this fabulous piece of dance. She has an amazing vision & knows how to make her ideas become a reality in such a professional way. We now look forward to the final in April. Go Calmore!

Last week the infant and junior schools took part in a sponsored fun run organised by both School Councils. It was particularly nice to see the infant children running alongside the junior children. All the proceeds from this event will go towards lunchtime play equipment.

Hi there

I was with Year 5 today, but not before I'd carried out an inspection of all their lunchboxes - with my nose!

First of all, I listened to Horrid Henry's Underpants, where Henry and his family were having a family discussion - about vegetables.  Horrid Henry hates all vegetables, but he does like crisps, because he says they're really vegetables - is that true?!  Hmmmm, I had to have a little think about that, and while I was thinking, I listened to The Lost Key, where the children whirled the magic key round and round, but it flew off and hit a greenhouse!  Oops!

Next I heard The Lottie Project, where Charlie's mum had just lost her job as a shop manageress and things were about to change ...

After that was How to Train Your Dragon, where Hiccup had a dragon in a basket on his back.  Wow!  I'm going to look more carefully at those baskets they have on bikes!

Then I heard iWant a World Record! where the iCarly team tried for the world record for the longest webcast, but a power cut meant that they were unsuccessful.  How did the power cut happen?  You'll have to read the book to find out!

The Brilliant World of Tom Gates was next, and I heard the bit where Granny Mavis had made pear and onion soup - eeeurgh! - and so she wanted to borrow some of Mum's cookbooks for inspiration.  Good idea!

Next was Mr Stink by David Walliams, and I listened to the bit where Chloe made friends with Mr Stink and offered to go to the shops for him, and guess what he wanted?  Sausages!  Sausages?  My favourite thing!  I pricked my ears up at that bit, and listened hard. Funny, I almost thought I could smell them too ...

Last today was another Horrid Henry - Horrid Henry's Christmas Cracker.  I do know it's not Christmas any more, but anyway, in the story, Mum and Dad had given each other an iron for Christmas, and other people in the family had got presents that they weren't too pleased with.  I wonder what happened next ...
