Students from The Vale Academy in Brigg travelled to Doncaster to join with students from other SPTA academies for a series of drama and music workshops. The meet up proved to be a feast of musical celebration and workshops culminated in two performances.

The musical performance included an improvised Jazz piece, where each band or choir created a variation on the basic tune which was then put together.

And the busy term continued with the Academy hosting The Vale Bake Off, a competition for primary pupils from local schools.

There were categories for biscuits or cookies, cupcakes or muffins and cakes for years three to six.

And there were some excellent entries, including a three-tier wedding cake, so the judges, two members of the Vale’s kitchen staff, had a hard time picking the winners.

Winners were Caitlin Cassidy for cookies/biscuits, Aaron Bratton for cupcakes and muffins, with Wrawby Primary School’s Madeleine Leaning given special recognition for her cake marking the Remembrance weekend.

The term ends with carol concerts in Westmoor Hall today (Wednesday), tomorrow and Monday.
