We’re listening to Christmas music as we write our last blog entry for 2018. It has been a fantastic week but we are now all ready for a good rest.

We started the week with a visit from Kirklees Musica who wowed pupils from across the school with their pop music recital. Their repertoire included classics from different eras of pop culture - from the Beatles to present day - and it definitely inspired some of our pupils who could be the pop stars of the future!

On Thursday we were blown away by the amazing pupils from KS2 who performed as part of our first Joseph Norton’s Got Talent! Routines included elements of dance, comedy, gymnastics and beat-boxing. The boys really were fantastic and the judges had a hard time choosing a winner. In the end of the trophy was shared between Oscar and Lewis for their moving and original performances. Thanks goes to all the staff who have supported the boys to develop and practice their routines in our after-school clubs.

Today pupils from different groups are working with Stephen in the kitchen putting the final touches to our whole school, home-cooked Christmas dinner.

We wish everyone a very happy Christmas and we look forward to seeing you on Monday 7th January.
