A big thank you to everyone who attended our NCS Parents’ Evening last night. We hope you found it useful and informative. Usher Street’s Parents’ Evening is tonight, and we are sure that it is going to be just as successful.

Children from the Yr5 drama club have WOWed us this week with their performance of Oliver. We are so proud of everyone who took part!

Last week we celebrated the first week of the BD5 Literacy Festival. Children from across BD5 were involved; having rehearsed for months they performed plays in front of large audiences at the Kala Sangam theatre as part of the festival. It marked the culmination of months of hard work and practice, and was a brilliant opportunity for the BD5 primary schools to come together.
Children from our own Year 5 classes performed their version of ‘The Street Child’ on Thursday, and it was a fantastic success. The children were a delight to watch, their acting impeccable and their characters believable! Well done to all involved and thank you to those who came along to watch and support the children.
This week, the fun continues with professional performances and workshops from actors, poets and artists! We think it is going to be a fantastic week and we are delighted that all our children in school will be involved in the festival. Some of the exciting activities they can look forward to are:
• Magic Carpet Theatre at the Alhambra – Yr6
• Cartoons and drawing with Chris Mould – Year 5
• Puppet Workshops with Simon Kerrigan – Year 3
• The Ugly Duckling Show at St Stephen’s Church – Year 1 and New to English
• ‘The Boggle’ puppet story telling – Year 4
• And lots more!
We hope you will be as excited as we are about the up-coming activities.
If you have any further questions about trips or activities that your children will be involved in please speak to your child’s teacher.

As part of the BD5 Literacy Festival, which is going on across BD5 this week, artist Chris Mould is working with children on their cartoon-drawing skills!
Chris has worked with us many times in the past and we really love his drawings! He will be presenting some of his work on pirates at the Bankfield Museum (HX3 6HG) on Saturday 25th January at 2.00pm. Perhaps the children who took part in his workshop this week would like to pay his exhibition a visit on Saturday?
