WOW - Blackawton go to see Red Shoes

What an absolute privilege it was to take 40 children to see such a spellbinding show. I could not have been more proud of all the children who came to see The Red Shoes. The theatre is an exciting, busy place and each and every one conducted themselves in a mature, polite and exemplary manner. And the show...it was difficult to take my eyes away from the stage but when I did and looked at the faces of the children watching, their expressions captured it all. The story-telling was exquisite. Many of the children couldn't believe that there wasn't any speech at all yet the dancers had told...

At 11am we marked Armistice Day with a two minute silence, followed by a remembrance assembly. The...

Blackawton Primary School Students Honour Village War Memorial

Pupils from years 5 and 6 cleaned and weeded the Blackawton Village War Memorial this week in preparation for the Remembrance Sunday Memorial Service.  The children from the school worked hard with scrubbing brushes, brooms, scrapers and stiff bristle brushes to make the War Memorial look cared for and sparkling.  The school is working hard to forge and maintain local community links and the request to clean the Memorial came from the Parish Council.  The children who took part in the clean enjoyed working in the sunshine, but were also aware of the gravity and impact of what...
