Year 2 re-enact The Great Fire of London

Year 2 have been designing, creating and painting houses made out of cardboard that resemble the houses in London in 1666 as part of their DT project. Everyone got involved and Mr Fox brought along some extra flammable materials to place inside the houses for the next part of their re-enactment.

Once the houses were perfected and finished, the children took to our outdoor learning area with Mr Fox. The houses were put into position and the fire was set in what would have been the bakery. The children watched in shock and amazement as the fire quickly spread throughout the houses they had made – just like it did in the Great Fire of London. Mr Fox safely put out the flames once all the houses had burned to ash.

 

10th April 2019 – Easter Hat Parade & Egg Competition

Children can wear their own clothes on this day in exchange for an Easter egg on the day.

As part of our Easter Celebrations we thought it would be fun to hold both an Easter Hat competition and Design an Egg competition.

All children are invited to either decorate a hat or a hard-boiled egg.  Hats can be a traditional bonnet or maybe a baseball cap or indeed decorating an old favourite dressing up hat, the choice is endless!  Eggs can be decorated as they wish, patterns, maybe a character or adding it to a background scene!  There are many ideas on websites so enjoy taking a look.

All decorated hats and eggs need to be brought into school on Wednesday 10th April when they will be judged by members of the PTFA.  Prizes will be given to the best in each class.

Children will parade their hats and display their eggs in the school hall and Parents/Carers are invited to join us.  Nursery children will show theirs at 2pm and the rest of the school at 2.30pm.  It is sure to be an egg-spectacular!

 

We very much look forward to seeing all the creations.

Looking Back

PTFA Fashion Show

I am told that the fashion show last night was an absolute triumph so well done to the PTFA and an especial thank you to all the models who so superbly did their things on the catwalk.

A special thanks to all who attended and made the event so great. Without the support of such fantastic parents our PTFA would not be able to help the school as much as they do.

 

Red Nose Day

Thanks for all monies raised for this appeal.

 

Sports for Schools Day

Thank you for all your sponsorship for our visiting athletes – they were very inspiring and we were honoured to see the level of commitment that is needed to be an athlete.

 

As always, I will always do my best to speak to you about any concerns you may have on the day so please feel free to approach me, either on the playground or book an appointment if you prefer.
