Saturday night saw our boarders battle it out for the much coveted LipSync prize! Pupils (and Staff!) could not wait to raid the fancy dress cupboard and put together their moves and grooves for their on-stage performance. Renditions of Call Me Maybe by Carly Rae Jepson, Hello by Adele, Wrecking Ball from Miley Cyrus, Abba’s Dancing Queen and by no means least, Baby Shark, were heard throughout the school and beyond as the groups tried their hardest to impress the judges. The evening was the perfect initiation for our new Gap students having only recently arrived at Mowden. Having seen their enthusiasm for both dressing up and performing we know they will fit in well here! The Boarders had a wonderful time at Inflataspace on Sunday as they bounced, jumped and flew, through the air on the various apparatus. The arena was overflowing in opportunities to take on some big air creating lots of happy smiley faces and hungry tummies on their return to school for a lovely hot supper. A fantastic and fun-filled weekend.

Year 3 enjoyed a wonderful visit to the Shipley Gallery in Gateshead on Thursday. After a tour of the gallery the pupils took part in an illustration and ceramic workshop. They have returned to school truly inspired and we look forward to seeing the results of their ideas from their work this term.

Year 7 have arrived safely at Sauveterre in France ready to start their French adventure. They have enjoyed lots of games helping them learn about the Chateau and lots of French vocabulary! New friends are already being made and today they visited the local market to test out their spoken French! It is very chilly but the blue skies and sunshine are very welcome.

Roll up, roll up! The Greatest Christmas Ball came to Mowden Hall School.

The children were immersed in a spectacular universe of circus, drama and pure greatness this Christmas time.

Our very own ringmaster (Headmaster, Neal Bailey) invited the children into the circus-themed Dining Hall to indulge in a festive 4-course meal, followed by karaoke, mystic palm readings and magical extras.

“Saturday night was one of those occasions when we all wanted time to stand still. The remarkable transformation from school dining room to stunning circus would not have been possible without a brilliant team effort. The enthralling and much enjoyed activities were followed by a feast of gastronomic delight  and then of course a splendid disco to savour! The look of enjoyment on all of the children’s faces said it all. ” Headmaster, Neal Bailey

The sound of little voices signing Christmas carols, the bang of Christmas crackers could only mean one thing…the Mowden Christmas Lunch.  What a feast! To add to the merriment, the children (and staff) were wearing their fabulous Christmas jumpers.

Last week a special visitor arrived to check who has been naughty and who has been nice in advance of the big day.

It’s SAAAAANNNNTTTTTAAAA! Link to the occasion below.

The Civil War times were brought to life by past parent Mr Fairfax. He brought all kinds of precious finds from the turbulent period of England’s history, including a pair of Sir Thomas Fairfax’s actual boots! The Year 4 children enjoyed hearing all about the stories of battles.

Huge thanks To Mr Fairfax for taking the time to bring in his amazing collection.

Christmas was officially underway as the musicians, singers and readers of Mowden Hall turned up at the magnificent Matfen Hall for the annual convert in the Great Hall. A large crowd of parents, families and friends turned up to watch and to join in with the Christmas carols, music and readings, performed from the mighty staircase and around the mammouth Christmas tree. All agreed that it was a first class concert and congratulations go to all the children who performed with such professionalism, their teachers and directors and to the audience who offered so much support. The arrangements were mainly down to Mr Fowlds, Mrs Roberson and Mr Hampton, who ensured that the performances were exceptional! The mince pies and other refreshments afterwards were extremely welcome too!

On Thursday 29th November, Year 4 went to the Centre for Life in Newcastle, for their Science trip. They visited the planetarium, the brain zone, curiosity zone, watched a Evil Scientist at work and went on the 4D motion ride. We also visited their junior labs for our Solids, Liquids and Gases workshop, which we have been studying this term. The children were dressed in lab coats and safety goggles and used bunsen burners! Sadly, the ice skating rink was flooded, so we weren’t unable to skate. A super day.

Mowden has entered a Christmas Tree into the Corbridge Christmas Tree Festival at the church. The theme naturally is one of “Bells” with the eight newly installed bells at St James’ Church, Newton being so fresh in our minds. Mrs Bailey took the Year 5 and 6 boarding prefects with her to set up the tree and they were very proud of how it looked in amongst the other contestants!
