Autumn term

On Tuesday 6th November we took part in a 'Murder Mystery' workshop at Beamish.  We were called in to help find out the identity of a 'body' discovered at Rowley Station.  Working in teams we discovered clues and interviewed witnesses.
We are enjoying learning to play simple rhythms on the drums, electric guitar, bass guitar and keyboard with Franco and Steve.  Watch out for an invitation to a performance in a few weeks time.
Year 6 pupils celebrated the end of our work with Elaine and Sarah of the Dodgy Clutch Theatre Company in style.  Parents, grandparents and carers joined us to celebrate the 'wedding' of Persephone and Hades.
