B Cador: June 2017
Yesterday afternoon, under clear blue, sunny skies, in a field in Wrenbury, a gathering of the community met to both be entertained by and celebrate the fantastic musical talent in and around our village.
Fun in a Field for a Fiver, the brain child of Alison Long and her contingent of staunch community-minded supporters, yet again roused the community to turn out and get together for this now annual event. How fitting that the weekend was also the Get Together Weekend that Jo Cox's family had wanted communities around the UK to support in her memory.
Just after 2pm, Wrenbury Primary School band took to the stage and opened with their rendition of 'We will rock you' and they certainly did! Jasmine, Lucy and Melissa sang three songs supported by Harry, Ryan and
Max on guitars and tambourine; the band giving three fantastic performances. The girls ended their performance with The Cup Song (You're gonna miss me when I'm gone). They performed a breathtaking acappella and faultlessly manouvered and tapped the cups to the song's rhythm. Amazing!
The band were then followed by singers from almost every year group in school who performed two songs to great applause: Life is a wonderful thing and Power in me.
The school is very proud of our talented youngsters and equally as proud of being part of a community that gets together for the good of everyone and uplift our spirits, especially in sad times.
A huge thank you on behalf of school to an unsung community hero, Alison Long, for organising the event. A very big thank you to Debbie (Rowlands) and Ed Forshaw for the time put in to rehearse with the band and to Miss Pitchford and Miss Phillips for their work with the singers prior to the event. Thank you to Miss Pitchford, Mrs Rowlands, Mrs Taylor, Mrs Heaton and Mrs Francis for joining me on Saturday to support the children. Finally, a huge thank you to the children and their families for giving up their Saturday afternoon to make these occasions really special.

Before half term, the children in school and those at home began their learning about the Census. Over the coming weeks we will further develop our understanding through a weekly activity...
