On Thursday night, Churchtown Primary held a Musical Night at the Movies production, including children from Years 1 to 5. In total there were 67 children in the choir, led by Miss Armitage, Mrs Keen, Mrs West and Mrs Bowers. The children performed a number of songs from different musicals, raising more money towards their charity week.

Miss Armitage said, “I don’t know who enjoyed the week more, the teachers or the children!”

Chair of Governors, Anne Tudor, wrote, “I was thoroughly entertained by the performance of all the children and enjoyed seeing all the little (and sometimes big!) personalities amongst them!”

Back in school on Friday, the charity week concluded with the final team challenge. Sports Ambassadors, Teachers, Teaching Assistants and Senior Management competed in their version of a Grand National on the school field. All of the children were invited to watch the final spectacle and after five events, the final scores were as follows:

1st place – Teachers (15 points)

2nd place – Sports Ambassadors (13 points)

2nd – Teaching Assistant (13 points)

2nd place – Senior Management (13 points)


Despite not winning the Grand National, the teachers just managed to maintain their lead and win overall.

Tom from 2L said “the Grand National was really fun! I liked it when the teachers ran past and high fived us!”

Head teacher Mrs Taylor stated afterwards, “A big thank you to Mr King and Miss Lucas for all their organisation, enthusiasm and fabulous dancing, without them it would not have happened. They have been the driving force behind what has been an exceptionally funny week. It’s been filled with laugher, teamwork and bling!”

In total, Churchtown Primary raised £1548.74 for the Charity Link Foundation and Comic Relief. Mr King and Miss Lucas said, ”Thank you again to all children, parents and staff who got involved. A special thank you to Mr Bateman for helping organise all the team challenges this week, including building fences for the final Grand National!”
