Pupils at a primary school enjoyed a busy end to last term and are looking forward to a fantastic new year.

Bourne Abbey Primary Academy entered 10 sports competitions against other schools in the area between September and December, meaning 180 children have had the chance to get involved in sports.

To promote the benefits of taking part in sport, four Year 6 pupils have taken on the important role of sports ambasssadors and the school has set up a sports committee with representatives from each year group meeting to discuss PE issues.

The school said this provides a great platform for the children to have a voice.

More than 50 youngsters from Years 5 and 6 have also trained as playground leaders so they can lead games and activities for their younger schoolmates.

For the second year running, children in Year 4 are taking part in music lessons, where each child learns to play a brass or woodwind instrument over two terms.

Before the Christmas break the pupils performed to parents to show off what they had learnt - performing versions of Hot Cross Buns and We Will Rock You.

They were joined by the Bourne Abbey wind band, who meet every Wednesday after school to continue their studies.

Parents and staff were also treated to two fantastic performances by Key Stage 2 dance groups.

Combining energy and fun, the girls put on a fabulous performance to songs by One Direction, which had their audience clapping and dancing along.

This was later showcased again at the Christmas fair.

Both dance groups are looking forward to learning new choreography in 2014 and to upcoming performances.

And to round off the year, Key Stage 2 youngsters were treated to a wonderful pantomime performance of Sleeping Beauty, by M and M Theatre Company.

It was a fantastic opportunity for the children to enjoy live theatre and get into the Christmas spirit.
