On Monday the schools held a Craft Afternoon for both children and parents. The fun filled afternoon allowed parents to spend time wither their children and families while taking part in craft activities organised by the school. Everyone took part in various craft activites including decorating a paper mache tree and we also had Rosebud Ceramics offering a workshop where children and parents could glaze either a Christmas decoration or mug.

Last week the children learnt all about St George’s Day, the Queen and British Values. We finished this special week with a 90th birthday party for the Queen. All of the children made an English flag and were given party food which they ate out on the school field. After this the children played traditional British games such as duck duck goose, cricket and hopscotch. Everyone had an amazing afternoon – one that would have made the Queen proud!
