Well done Class 3. Your Assembly was fantastic.
This was sent as a message to the School Facebook Page. We thought we’d share it here as well.
“My name is Jane Bates.
I had to pop by and say hello when I saw your page on Facebook.
I was born at 1 Mill Cottage, Birdsedge in 1963 and my parents were the caretakers of Birdsedge School .
My first school years were spent at your little school and the Headmaster was called Mr Spence.
My first year there I was taught by Mrs Owen and I then moved up to Mrs Acton’s class for a short while before we moved away. I have very happy memories of those years. I passed my national cycling proficiency test in your play ground and I remember May Day and Harvest festival with fond memories. The smell of daffodils used to fill the school hall and my favourite of all was to dance round the May pole. I learnt to play the recorder there and to read music too.
I feel blessed to have been born in to such a wonderful little village and even though I am now 50 years old I remember it like yesterday. I live in the South now and have visited the North only a few times. When I next make a trip to the North I would very much like to visit the School and have a look round . It looks much the same on your photo with the exception of a little new addition on the side of the building.
I wonder if you still have the May pole dancing and Harvest festivals. We Also used to make Easter gardens on biscuit tin lids in the hall, it was such a lovely time. I used to go to Birdsedge Church every Sunday where Mr and Mrs Missing we’re the preacher and his wife. Mrs Missing used to run Sunshine corner there and she taught me how to crochet. The neighbourly warmth and community spirit were something that couldn’t be found anywhere else since we moved away.
I hope you didn’t mind me contacting you. I am just overjoyed to have seen your page on here.”
After all the snow Class 2′s assembly was a great success. They took us back in time to the Victorian age. The Ells family and the Haigh family were families in Victorian Birdsedge. They learnt how to weave and wrote instructions to tell us how. They sang 4 Pence a Day about hard work, and travelling north. They read work about mining whilst singing and music playing. In Art they made some collages. They sung a song about electricity how we all need it and they sung us some examples why we need it. We got taken forward to the future where they sung ‘Friendly Robot’. They made robots with circuits in them which made it move for example it’s eyes lit up. They all made a story with front covers and blurbs. Parents stayed to look at work.
School will be closed today due to heavy snow.
This blog is by Lewis in Class 3. It’s Class 1′s assembly 21st of March, they’ve made puppets and collages. The puppets were made to be things like; ladybirds, whales and princesses. They told the story of goldilocks and the three bears using actions and songs I am sure they will remember these songs and actions if you couldn’t come. They also counted in tens. Mrs Walden has given it a brilliant review, especially about the three bears and everything else.
