Colombus Schools’ Summer Music Festival

On Friday our Key Stage 2 choir performed St Ambrose Church alongside 5 other local schools in the Colombus Schools’ Summer Music Festival. They looked and sounded amazing; we are extremely proud of them and their achievements this year.


Band with the BBC

On Tuesday afternoon the band were lucky enough to go on a trip to Bristol University to play with their orchestra as part of the BBC Ten Pieces Project. We played three pieces along with approximately 100 other children from across Bristol Schools: Mars from The Planets Suite by Holst, The Firebird by Stravinsky and The Hall of the Mountain King by Grieg. The children had a great time, and what a fantastic experience this was for them!


Big Picnic

We hosted a Big Picnic yesterday. Our guests were Two Mile Hill and Summerhill Infants – the children swapped plants they had grown, had gardening and cookery lessons, attended a Forest Schools session with Space Cadet Stacey, played some games, rode stationary bikes and enjoyed lunch in the sun.

We had a great time warming up and singing sea shanties. We then performed some songs to each other before coming together to sing in front of some specially invited guests. Our choir sang beautifully – we were all very proud!

Cavan Scott becomes Patron of Reading at ABHPS

Some good news! We are pleased to say that Cavan Scott has become the Patron of Reading for our school.

What’s a Patron of Reading I hear you ask? Well, its an author that works with a school to promote the love of reading with its pupils. That’s not just fiction too – the scheme takes in non-fiction and comics as well.

Cavan had a brilliant meeting with Mrs Hennessy and Mrs Liley of a couple of weeks ago, when they started to draw up plans for the work he will be doing with the school.
