Lemonade Kid
The KS2 children again did themselves proud as they performed our latest production - The Lemonade Kid. The story told of a British visitor to the WIld West who didn't believe in guns and overcame the town's baddie using just his favourite drink.

Cambridgeshire and Peterborough School Games Summer Festival 2017
Quicksticks Following the hockey players' success the previous week, Wyton was invited to be one of four teams representing the Huntingdonshire schools at the county sports festival. The standard of play was again very impressive and our children did an excellent job representing the school and the local area but weren't quite able to reach the medal positions. Quicksticks
 
Y3/4 Tri Golf Festival
Tri-Golf
On a cold and blustery summer's(!) day some of the Y3 and Y4 children attended the first every tri-golf festival held at HInchingbrooke School. The children took part in a series of activities giving them the opportunity to see if they may be budding golf stars of the future. Along with children from several other local schools they took part in trying to chip the balls over a 'river' and took aim with their putters seeing who could get the closest to a target. It was thoroughly enjoyed by the children and will hopefully be an annual event.

Quicksticks Hockey Festival
Quicksticks
Having been the winners of an inter-house competition, our Red house team of Y5 and Y6 children represented the school at the Huntingdonshire Quicksticks tournament. The children competed in 6 games against other schools winning 3 of them and we were delighted to find that we were one of two small schools that will be representing the area in the County finals. It was an excellent performance by the children, especially considering it's the first time the school has participated in the competition.

Y4 Visit to Wimpole Hall
Wimpole To help them with their design and technology project on seasonal food, the Y4's visited Wimpole Hall on a very hot day. They were given a tour of the walled garden where the volunteers explained about the produce they grow and they later saw some of the very noisy pigs being fed. A tractor ride back to the minibus was probably a highlight for some! To see pictures from the visit, click here. Wimpole

HuntsNet Schools Y4 Orienteering Festival
Y4 Orienteering
Some of Y4 children took part in the first every Orienteering Festival held for the HuntsNet Schools where the aim was to have fun as well as developing some of their orienteering skills. The children were organised into small groups and each one was led by a Y9 Sports Leader from Hinchingbrooke School where the event was held. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves and this was demonstated by Bethany's quote as she finished: "That was well good, I don't want to go."

Mrs. Barber gave a tour of the museum and the children were then given the oppotunity to learn for themselves more about Oliver Cromwell's life and about how Britain was different 500 years ago.

The School Choir at the O2 in London for Young Voices
O2 The Choir travelled all the way to the O2 in London for their first ever Young Voices experience. They found when they got there that they were one of hundreds of schools but were at the very front and had fantastic views of the stage and parents. It was a long day with rehearsals starting at 1 and finishing at 5pm. The concert for the parents took place in the evening involving 7000 children – the World’s largest choir! For the children and staff it was an unforgettable and completely awe inspiring event which they can’t wait to repeat next year. O2

Choir Performance at the Officers' Mess Charity Christmas Lunch
Choir

Children from the school choir were invited to the Base to perform to invited guests at the Officers’ Mess Charity Christmas Lunch. Despite some technical difficulties with the CD, they didn’t let it faze them and they performed admirably as they sang some of their songs from the One Voices repertoire and a couple of Christmas songs. The event was topped off for them at the end as they were given a chocolate gift to eat as they returned to school.
