Sports Day Superstars!

Thank you to everyone who came to support our sports day. It was great that finally the sun shone on us and we hope that everyone had an enjoyable time. The children all tried really hard and it was good to see so many of them displaying great attitudes and encouraging each other along. Thanks also to the PTA volunteers who served refreshments throughout the day– in the morning it was hot drinks on what was as a very cloudy and chilly start but quickly became the warmest and sunniest day we have had in quite some time.

Canon Popham’s Got Talent

A massive WELL DONE to all the children who auditioned or took part in our Grand Final held last Friday evening. It was a great evening with 23 acts performing to a packed audience . Children from every class in the school were represented with a range of talents on display from joke telling to Irish dancing and from singing to playing musical instruments. It was wonderful to see what a talented group our children at Canon Popham are. Thank you to the staff and PTA who ran the event and to everyone who helped in any way. We are delighted that over £870.00 was raised. This money will go towards providing little extras that the school budget is unable to support.

After a very closely fought contest the final result was . . .

3rd– Jayden Gray and Oscar McGuiness ( Y2) who performed a dance duet

2nd– Lily Whittaker ( Y6) who did a song and dance routine

1st  Imogen Gillings ( Y2) who performed a song from The Little Mermaid.

A particular well done must go to the many Reception class children who showed off their talents to such a packed audience. They were very brave and did a wonderful job with smiles on their faces!

An enjoyable evening was had by everyone and we look forward to seeing what the children perform next year.
