The whole school enjoyed a lovely Harvest Festival celebration at St. Mary’s Church, Cofton.
Each class made a super contribution with Class 1 delivering some first class readings! It was wonderful to see so many parents and carers there. We also welcomed the Reverend Alan Smith and his dog puppet- Thomas. The theme this year was Trees and links were made to our value this half term which is self -belief.
Great Britain’s Paralympic goalkeeper Dan James visited Cockwood School last week and led the children through a circuit of exercise, teaching them the importance of fitness and persevering to achieve goals.
A great afternoon and a fantastic way to exercise! It was amazing to learn about Dan’s achievements at the Paralympics – a real inspiration. (more…)
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!
Once again the acts were varied and very entertaining, enjoyed by the judges and the audience alike!
The talent was outstanding and the comments from our judges Aisha Flewin and Simon Cruel were very encouraging!
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.
Pupils at Cockwood School took part in a fundraising house event at the Bear Trail.
The task was to get around the course in the quickest time, with house points being awarded at the end. A brilliant day was had by all and we look forward to seeing how much the children have raised for the PFA. (more…)
