Nativity Performance 2021

We are bursting with pride after such a wonderful, fantastic, magnificent, outstanding performance! Thank you to all involved! Not only a worthy celebration of sharing this precious story with loved ones, but we raised £75 for Cafod's World Gifts in the collection - this will be money well spent for the benefit of those most in need.

Whole School Art Day

The theme for the Art Day was fireworks to tie in with both Bonfire Night and Diwali celebrations this week. The children designed, adapted and improved their own firework shapes and then used a combination of oil pastel, paint and collage to create cityscapes in the foreground. The Upper Juniors drew their city from a one point perspective and then collaged over their drawings.

 

'The Visitor' by Ian Serraillier performed by Upper Juniors:

A perfect poem for this spooky time of year. The Upper Juniors performed this eerie rhyming poem about a supernatural being coming to reclaim something that belongs to them...

This was an impromptu performance which captured our imagination at Hallowe'en!

Our Juniors missed their annual English Speaking Board assessments last year due to Covid - but drama and public speaking is celebrated at Queenswood.

Keith's Teeth by Melanie Woolner:

Queenswood School was delighted to have a visit and Q&A session with local author Melanie Woolner, who came to share her latest story 'Keith's Teeth'. 
Melanie spoke about her love of reading and what influenced her to write this particular story.

The children asked inquisitive questions about the journey to becoming a published author and shared their own ideas they had for future stories about the life of Keith O'Keef.
Thank you for your visit Melanie!

Harvest 2021:

We've just celebrated our Harvest Festival and it was wonderful to be back in the church with parents able to join us this year. We had an amazing response to our appeal for tinned goods which were donated to a local charity. In addition we had a collection which raised money for the Rare Breeds Survival Trust to support the heritage of heavy horses who have done so much for farming communities in the past and are sadly facing rapid decline.

Macmillan Coffee Morning:

A great time was had by all and we are proud to announce a total of £175.50 raised for this worthy cause. Buns, prizes and lots of laughter along the way!
