A visit from Sally for Class 3

Posted on

On Thursday the children in Class 3 were visited by an old friend… Sally! She came in to talk to the children about her childhood toys, her time at school and the games she used to play.

In Class 3 we are looking at toys from the past, starting with toys from within living memory. Sally brought in fantastic toys such as ‘cat’s cradle’ ‘french skipping’ and a wonderful ‘spirograph’ for the children to have a look at. She then helped us to make our own snap dragons and spinning wheels!

Music Showcase 2017

Posted on

This week the young musicians of Cockwood School displayed their wonderful talents in our annual Music Showcase. Children from across the school came together to perform to a crowd in the Village Hall for both parents and friends, wowing the audience with some super musical pieces.

Our current music teachers specialise in keyboard, drums and guitar. We were able to see an array of performances across these instruments from pupils of all levels. It was truly fantastic to see even beginner performers take to the stage with such confidence. A big well done to all those children involved, and a big thank you to our music teachers for their continued hard work.
