Winter Book Suggestions
What would be a good children’s book to read with a winter theme? Not sure? Then why not pop into Grantham Library to see what books the children at Dudley House would recommend?
Children in the school have reviewed a selection of winter themed books and created book covers to showcase the books they have read. These are on display in the children’s section of Grantham library until the end of January.
Nutcracker Dance Competition
As a school, we are very proud of all the children in class 3 and 4 who worked hard to create a dance for the Royal Opera House competition. We all thoroughly enjoyed watching their final performance and were impressed with what they had achieved.
The Royal Opera House sent them the following messages – ‘Well done on creating a wonderful National Nutcracker Dance! We particularly enjoyed the great choice of music! Your dance was really well rehearsed and thoughtfully staged. It was lovely to know that you have had such a good time on the project. Well done.’
‘Your robotic movements are very well performed and effective for your theme well done!
You have used motif development and canon very effectively. There are some accomplished dance skills on show in your dance. You have a really nice unison section where you use the music very well and show good timing. You should be proud of all your dancers and your achievement.’
The children will be visiting the Reel cinema to see ‘The Nutcracker’ as a special treat, provided by the Royal Opera House, for all the hard work they put in.
Well done to all the children who played in our music assembly. Here are a few of the performers.
On Tuesday evening, science club made recycled paper.
They chopped some scraps of different types of paper up into small pieces, before adding a couple of handfuls and some water into the blender. Once the paper pulp was ready, it was poured into a washing up bowl along with some more water. A mould and deckle was used to scoop some pulp from the bowl. This was drained thoroughly. The excess water was soaked up with a sponge before the paper was left to dry. Most of the children thoroughly enjoyed this hands on experience, but a couple preferred to watch.

Golden Book Achievers
Congratulations to all the children whose achievements were celebrated in today’s Golden Book assembly. In class 1, one child was chosen for settling into our school with enthusiasm and positivity and another child was chosen for his improved sharing skills. A class 2 child was chosen for her excellent work in maths. A class 3 child was chosen for her good sentence ideas in English. In class 4, five children were chosen for the effort they put in to work completed at home on the English Civil War. One of these children was also chosen for coming back to school with a fantastic learning attitude that was reflected in the work she has produced. Two children from class 4 were also awarded with Mathletics certificates.
There was great excitement in class 2 today as two butterflies emerged from chrysalis. At first their wings were all crumpled but gradually the children saw the wings expand and flapped as they dried out.
We are just waiting to see the final butterfly emerge.
