A damp hour in the forest was cheered by team shelter building, fairy pillow lighting and mini marshmallow roasting. Success all round and a bunch of happy foresters!
Hot chocolate chez le Headteacher-lucky me! What interesting tales I get to hear; I should write a book!
Huge thank you to all those who supported our Macmillan Coffee Afternoon by either baking delicious cakes or buying them. We raised an amazing £147.85 and what a lovely way to end the week!
Another friendly, happy and calm forest club this week. Violet proved, once again, that she really is the fire striking queen (so quickly that I couldn’t even get a photo) and we all learnt that perseverance really does pay off!
This week we had wonderful presentations from Willow Class, where each child considered and explained what they would do to be a worthy school captain. The competition was tough and very close. Well done everyone for having the courage to stand up and take part- you were all very impressive! We are delighted to announce that this year’s School Captains and Vice Captains are: Lola, Louis, Cam and Lilia- We look forward to working with you; the list is getting longer already!
What a fantastic day of all things Dahl. The children looked amazing all dressed up and there were lots of Roald Dahl themed activities taking place around the school.
Mr Leonard set up a range of themed activities for lunch and break time. We had ‘Mrs Trunchbull’s Shotput‘, ‘Climb the Giraffe’s’ Neck‘, ‘The BFG dream catching‘ and ‘Augustus Gloop gets stuck in the Hoop‘.
What a great assembly we had today from ‘Music for Schools’. We were shown a range of instruments the children could learn, some children even got the chance to try some.
