Tis the Season to be Jolly! Christmas festivities are in abundance.

Pennywell Farm

Becoming a bit of an annual event, Foundation went on a Christmas trip to Pennywell Farm. This year they were joined by the Pre-school. The Nativity story is told through the farm’s animals and barn, with the children, and adults, dressing up as the story characters. They feasted on a Christmas biscuit and a juice and also got to meet Father Christmas.

Robin Hood

If you didn’t get to see the production of Robin Hood, by the Wembury Drama Group, you missed a treat! It was lovely to see current and ex pupils taking lead roles and performing brilliantly. It was also great seeing some of the village characters acting out their alter ego! There was the usual good humour, banter and ‘corny’ jokes and there was definite audience participation! Thank you to FroWS for the free, warming, mulled wine with mince pies, popcorn and sweets, and for manning the evening so well. Thanks also to the drama group for donating the evening to FroWS and the school. A great start to getting in the Christmas spirit.     

Christmas Tree Lighting

The countdown to the lighting of the tree was a success, it is now shining in all its glory. Mr Clarke organised a fabulous evening, that was enjoyed by many. Although missing the ‘Three Tenors’ this year we were beautifully entertained by the ‘Carousel Quartet Singers’ and Wembury Primary School children. It was a delightful evening visited by Father Christmas and with music played by the Laira Youth Band.  Well done Mr Clarke.

Mount Edgcumbe Y5

You don’t usually associate World War 2 with Mount Edgcumbe but that’s exactly what happened for Year 5, as part of their WW2 topic.  They travelled across the Cremyll ferry to Mount Batten, where they visited and experienced an air raid shelter and learnt many local and historical facts about WW2. It looks like they had an adventurous day. Click on the link below for more.
