Acorns Fiesta

In the summer term, the Acorns take part in a combined sports day, swimming gala and musical concert as a celebration of their achievements.

Carol Service

Our Christmas Carol Service takes place in our Parish church a short walk away from the school. Acorns 2 create a wonderful nativity tableau whilst the Year 6’s impress us with their readings and the choir mesmerise the parents and staff with truly wonderful singing.

Christmas play

Every pupil in the Acorns takes part in our Christmas play which is performed on stage in the Senior School hall. Parents are invited to enjoy the festive atmosphere whilst the staff ensure that none of the sheep wander too near the edge of the stage!

Eisteddfod

This event in the spring term gives our girls the chance to show off their creative talents, as they perform poetry, singing, drama and dance routines as well as entering competitions for handwriting and art. All girls in both the Acorns and Juniors are invited to take part and earn precious house points for their respective Houses.

Junior Production

A large scale musical production is staged at the end of the spring or beginning of the summer term. All Junior pupils are included in the cast with Year 6 taking the leading roles.

Music Concert

A music festival for the Junior pupils is held in the summer term so that the girls can enjoy the experience of performing in front of an audience and parents can see the fruits of the many hours of music practice that have taken place over the year.

Residential Week/Project Week

Learning about how to get on with people and working as part of a team is an important life skill and a key part of growing up. Our residential trips provide the girls with the opportunity to work and play with girls that they may not normally spend time with in school. During these trips they are presented with new challenges and sometimes taken outside their comfort zone!

Our residential trips take place in the summer term for pupils in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6. The lengths of the trips vary, with Year 3 spending one night away, Years 4 and 5 are away for two to three nights and Year 6 enjoy a full week’s residential stay.

For the rest of the week the girls will take part in projects which will complement their residential visits.

The Acorns and Little Acorns will enjoy day trips which are planned into their week’s topic.
