Next week we are looking forward to celebrating the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. On Friday we would like to invite the children to come in red, white and blue mufti. There will be a whole school assembly and parade around the school. Classes are busy practising the National Anthem and also a special Jubilee Song. In the afternoon we will enjoy some traditional games and activities outside.
Later in the summer term, we will be inviting families to come and see our portraits of the Queen throughout her life at a special exhibition. Each year group has taken a different era and we are looking forward to producing a variety of portraits for everyone to enjoy. All the exciting ‘portrait’ lessons that Miss Williams has been teaching will be put to very good use!
Today the children in Year 1 have enjoyed their visit to the allotment, where they have been learning about different plants and animals as part of their Science lesson. They were very excited to share what they had been doing on their way back into school. Maggie said that she ‘spotted forget-me- nots and poppies, but the best part was seeing a Water Boatman (a water insect) that sometimes swims upside down!’ Thank you to Mr Williams for sharing his allotment with the children this afternoon.
Today nursery have had an exciting visit from David Bowden, who has been sharing his love of poetry and performance. Mrs Gilkes says that, ‘What a lovely experience this morning to have Dave from Word Guerrilla visit us in the nursery. The children and staff enjoyed immensely how he bought poetry and music to life for a young audience, which was totally appropriate for their age group. We are inspired to investigate poetry further…watch this space!’ Next week children in Ignite and Inspire will be looking forward to their workshops as well.
