Curriculum Open Evening with the Grand Opening of the Fire Pit

Thursday 17th July saw the grand unveiling of a fire pit and storytelling area in the grounds of Haddenham Community Infant School.

The school holds an open evening every year in July where the children showcase their learning and display their unique skills. This year it had a Caribbean feel to it with authentic food on offer; plantain, special pasties with some hot flavours (not for the faint hearted I hasten to add!)

Groups of children danced their way through the evening with some Caribbean style dancing choreographed by the specialist teacher who teaches at the school, Katrina Bright from Footstep Dance School. "These were dances the children had worked on in our specialist Curriculum Week " Mrs Mitchener added, as well as "the children had great fun and learned the steps really very quickly, they really are an extremely talented bunch and we are so proud of them".

The evening also saw the grand opening of a new area within the school grounds; a storytelling and fire pit area. A special local singing storyteller, Nick Cope from Oxford, helped with the opening by singing some amusing stories whilst the children and their parents enjoyed toasting marshmallows over the newly installed fire pit.

"The evening had such a lovely atmosphere and was a great success. The fire pit was busy all evening and the children were so proud showing their parents their learning around the school", Mrs McNeil commented.

Please take a look at all the photos of the evening ... there are many more in the GALLERY section.
