Living the dream!

When we ask children what they want to be when they grow up we get all sorts of answers ranging from being an astronaut to a popstar! One common dream is to become a professional footballer, but out of thousands of hopefuls very few will make it. Five years ago, Emil Powles left us to go to secondary school having played football and many other sports for us. 
But Emil's real passion was always football and he was desperate to play for his local heroes at Grimsby Town FC! 
It was great to hear then, having played at all the junior levels, Emil made his senior debut, age just 17, coming on against Sunderland in the Checkertrade Trophy last week. Town may have lost out on penalties, but it was a win for little budding footballers everywhere! Congratulations Emil - live the dream!

Senior Choir

Following on from the successful concert by our Year 3/4 Choir at the Conoco Rooms, our Year 5/6 Choir performed in St. James's Church alongside Kidgate, Lacey Gardens and the Louth Male Voice Choir in aid of Children in Need.
It was a wonderful evening of singing (and drumming!) and our children were a credit to the school helping to raise lots of money on the night.
A big WELL DONE to Mrs C Wood and all the children who took part.

Sing! Sing! Sing!

Our Year 3/4 Choir received rave reviews from parents and members of the public alike when they sang at the 'Allegro Appassionata' concert held in the Conoco Rooms above Louth Library. Evidently, it was such a popular event, many of the audience had to stand outside and on the stairs!
Mrs Flowers reported that the children sang beautifully, behaved impeccably and were a credit to the school. Well done everyone!

Wear your poppy with pride.

Today we have shared in an Act of Remembrance. Every child in school has had the opportunity to contribute to a year group Poppy Wreath. Our older children have drawn around their hands and written words that sum up their feelings on each 'finger petal'. We have come together as a whole school community and had a time of quiet and thoughtful reflection while Mrs C Wood beautifully played the 'Last Post'.
Children from Year 6 shared the famous "In Flanders fields" poem and laid a single Wreath at the front of the Hall on behalf of us all.
"So wear your poppy with pride,
Wear your poppy with pride.
Remember everyone's daughters and sons
and the heroes who've died
So we may live together 
Today standing side by side.
To lay a Wreath,
Pray for Peace,
Wear your poppy with pride."
