Macbeth Performance

Our Year 5 and Year 6 pupils were treated to a full cast production of Macbeth by The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School. The standard of acting was fantastic! As well as enjoying a wonderful performance of this piece of classic literature, we were also inspired by the talented performers.

Visit to Natural History Museum, London

Our Year 5 and 6 pupils went on a visit to the Natural History Museum in London. It meant they needed a very early start – the coach left school at 7am! But it was well worth the effort. Pupils made the most of the great learning opportunities available at the museum, including the use of the science labs.

Thanks staff and parents who accompanied children on this visit.

Year 4 Football Tournament

It was a cold January evening but the exciting football kept us warmed up! Our 4 Learning Partnership Schools came to join us for a Year 4 football tournament. All players from all schools represented themselves and their schools fantastically. Children demonstrated excellent teamwork and resilience alongside their great skills.
Our team performed fantastically. After winning both our first two matches, the final game was a showdown with St Werburgh’s who also had two victories. The game couldn’t have been closer with the lead changing several times. With 10 seconds to go the match looked to be heading for a draw at 3-3 until Cabot scored a last minute winner. This meant we topped the table and finished tournament champions.

Thank you to everyone who came to support. Very special thanks to Miss Kondwani who organised the tournament for us.

Christmas Performance

Our Key Stage 1 and Early Years pupils performed our Christmas Play this morning. Despite a number of absences with colds and flu, we felt “the show must go on!” As well as showcasing their brilliant acting, reading and singing talents, we also got an insight into their leaning about looking after the plane. One of our Cabot school rules is to look after the school and everyone and thing in it. I think this would be agood rule for the planet to follow. I am hopeful that future generations will do a better job of doing this than we have.

It was also fun to see the Mr Burton character! Though I think he looked sharper than me in his jacket and tie!

Well done to all the pupils and staff that made this happen. And of course, thank you parents for coming along to the show.

Visitors from China

At Cabot we value working in Partnership with others. Our Year 5 and Year 6 pupils have been learning about the Shang Dynasty in China. To help bring learning about China, its people and its culture to life, Miss Tupman invited some Chinese visitors to Cabot. They first came in September but our partnership with them has grown and they have been back for a second visit. We hope this Partnership continues for many years to come.

Flu Vaccination

I have received information from Public Health England that a large number of schools have already been affected by flu (influenza) outbreaks this year.

Free flu vaccinations are available for ALL primary aged children. NHS nurses will be coming to administer the nasal spray at Cabot next week. If you have not booked your child in for this immunisation at school we strongly recommend you see your GP to discuss immunisation options. Flu can be very serious. More details about the immunisation programme can be found at the link below.
