Year 6 leavers

Parents and KS2 were treated to a fabulous year 6 leaver's assembly on Tuesday. They looked back on their memories from their time at Primary School and reminisced about their best memory, their funniest moment and what they will miss about Shavington Primary School. It was lovely to hear that they have had so much fun during their time at school.  They were then given a special dictionary, which they had signed by the teaching staff, to keep as a memento. Afterwards parents and children had a delicious celebratory buffet and drinks.
They will be greatly missed but we wish them lots of luck at their new High School as they move on to a new chapter in their lives. Good luck!

Year 5 & 6 put on a fabulous production of 'Ye-Ha' on Wednesday evening and Thursday afternoon.  After a lot of hard work and commitment the show turned out to be a roaring success packed with fun, laughter and song.  The members of the cast were word perfect and portrayed their characters to perfection with their deep south accents and their comedy timing was spot on.  The solo singers were amazing and showed great confidence when performing their numbers.  Year 5 added the vocal support as the choir complementing the cast and making it a show to remember.

2BL in Llandudno

Our train left Crewe at 0923 this morning to waves and a few tears!

We arrived safely at our hotel and the sun was shining on our happy faces.

Lunch was at a five star bench overlooking the Irish Sea on the famous Llandudno Promenade. We had first class guests in the shape of some seagulls, who managed to home in on Jack N to taste his sandwiches!!

After a play on the beach we strolled along the pier before taking in the delights of a traditional Punch and Judy show "that's the way to do it!"

Our ice-creams were soon devoured despite being asked to move on by an impolite shopkeeper, who thought we were affecting his sale, we thought otherwise but politely moved on!

After a lovely 3 course meal we went to watch the Llandudno Town Band who had us marching around the deckchairs on the prom. Some of us were also lucky enough to conduct the band. Alex H had a great time!!

We are all now ready for bed having had a super day and a super chip supper. Roll on tomorrow and all that it brings.

Primary College

Today year 5 took part in Primary College at South Cheshire College.  This was very exciting as we had not seen the new college and its facilities.  With over 15 schools taking part for two days there were a variety of activities to choose from; haircare, cheerleading, business management, falconry, athletics, computing, first aid and a whole host of others! The children got the opportunity to experience two activities that they might not have done before and to learn a new skill. Some beautiful work was produced by the children to take home and show their parents. All the children had a great fun day and are looking forward to doing it all again tomorrow.
