The Incredible Christmas Story!

We had a visit from a pantomime company on Friday 6th December; it was one of the best pantomimes we have had at South End Infant School!

The children were engaged from beginning to end and it gave them the opportunity to contribute towards the story by wording the script and through audience participation.  The actors were all brilliant and the characters were recognisable and easy for the children to relate to.  The jokes were current and funny for both children and staff and the fact that it was educational was very welcome.

Huge thanks to Pantomime Play for a most enjoyable performance!

The opening of the Exploration Station - November 2017

Everyone in Reception was extremely excited when the Exploration Station opened in November. The Exploration Station is an outdoor learning space based in the Reception playground that was paid for by funds raised by FOSEIS.  Supporting us also in the groundworks were Kier Construction, The Prince’s Trust and Wickes.

The Reception children sang some beautiful songs they had written about nature and the outside, before the ribbon was cut and the Exploration Station was officially declared open! This is a great example of how important the funds that you help to raise benefited not only for current pupils but also for the children of the future, adding to their whole school experience. A big thank you from us to you.
