IMG 0209iSingPop is officially under way at Blue Coat! 'Rob' is in school today and working with all year groups to introduce the songs that will make them the popstars who will be recording an album and performing at St Mary's church next week.

2015-12-10 12.56.19 pmWe previously reported on the success of Milepost 3's new curriculum learning that resulted in a Christmas pop-up shop being set up and used to raise over £1100 in takings last Saturday - see photos here. This event was newsworthy enough to make The Gazette two weeks running! This week it was Milepost 2's turn to shine, albeit in different curriculum areas.

This has seen our Milepost 1 pupils taking on the role of Christmas Party Planners; Milepost 2 going to art school and setting up a gallery to promote and sell their creations; and Milepost 3 pupils who have set up their own businesses with a view to making some serious profit for charities through a Christmas pop-up shop venture.

cartoon 2005.111Last year, Blue Coat pupils put in a monumental effort over the course of the organised district Cross Country races, scooping winning places in all categories - a feat not achieved for many years, apparently.

2015-11-14 01.01.27 pmFriday saw Children In Need in full fundraising force at Blue Coat. Our Year 5 and 6 pupils took the initiative to set up stalls for the rest of the school aimed at providing games, activities and delicious foods all for sale to raise monies for the charity.

We will confirm a school total of funds raised on the headteacher's tweet on the home page.

Thank you to everyone for supporting this worthy cause. Enjoy some photo highlights from the morning...

Below is a press release related to one lucky class who will be involved in the 'experiment':
