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.
A great afternoon all round. Below are some photos from the event:

As part of their curriculum Minibeasts topic, Reception had a visit from Zoolab Uk, who according to their website work with animals to amaze, educate and inspire. The children got to meet lots of different insects learning lots of new interesting facts about them.
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!

Reception have been learning about mini beasts. They put on their wellies and raincoats and using magnifying glasses went on a hunt in the school’s wildlife garden looking for an assortment of different types of insects. They had great fun lifting logs and looking through the plants and grass to find all types of different creepy crawlies.
