The whole school thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Nice Swan’s panto production of Cinderella just before we broke for Christmas. Festive, participative and hilarious in equal measure, the show was a super way to ease us all into the Christmas break. The cost of tickets was, of course, met using funds raised by Friends of Fellside. The group’s generosity has also recently extended to some further purchases to benefit the children of Fellside. Our precious iPads have surely had their lives extended through the purchase of x30 robust covers and our prowess in technology has been bolstered further through the purchase of Apple TV for every classroom. This will help refine how we use the iPads in the classroom setting, giving teachers the opportunity to ‘mirror’ what is on their iPad screen (or that of a pupil) onto the whiteboard for whole class observation or to demonstrate use of an app etc. FoF are also continuing to fund our up-grading of the soft play area in our Early Years department with the purchase of some smart new storage to help us to make best use of the space. Many thanks to all of the FoF volunteers who generously devote their time in the interests of the children. Without their commitment to fund-raising, we’d struggle to provide these resources from our normal school budget.
