Mrs Newman and I could hardly believe it was that time of year again.  The first week in March brought with it this year’s Bedfordshire Festival of Music and Speech and Drama.  We had a great variety of poems to show this year; some very funny, some a little scary, some rather mysterious and all needing a lot of work to get just right.  The children, as usual, practiced tirelessly; taking on board our comments and putting their own unique twists on their poems.

Our week started and finished on highs with us claiming third place on our first day and first place on our last day, with many placings and wonderful achievements in between.  We were, once again, so proud of the courage, confidence and good behavior each one of our children demonstrated throughout the process.

We felt it only right to treat them at the end of what was an exhausting week, and could think of no better way to do that than a trip to Pizza Hut, which was immensely enjoyed by all!  Well done and congratulations to all the participants and thank-you once again to all the parents, brothers, sisters, aunties, uncles and grandparents who came to support the children throughout the week.
