Week Ending 15th June 2007

Our class gardens are looking good now. Hedgehog class were able to eat some of the radishes from their garden, organically grown of course! The Squirrel class garden has a sea-side theme and is looking great!
We had a Sharing Assembly on Tuesday. The children showed their special work and spoke up in big voices to tell us about why they had been chosen. One five year old read his whole reading book beautifully.
On Wednesday we had our cookery evening which was well attended. Our kitchen manager Tania Watkin did a fantastic job demonstrating some barbeque and picnic recipes.How does she do it? It all tasted delicious. Most of the recipes are in our school cook book, available for £5 from the school office.
There was great excitement on Wednesday when our caterpillars arrived in the post. Each child in Foundation stage or keystage one has their own caterpillar in a container so they can observe how they grow and change. More about this in the next few weeks.
As part of our Geography work we have sent Barnaby Bear to Turkey and Travelling Hedgehog to the Isle of Wight with some of our children. We are hoping that they bring back photos and tell us about their experiences.
Our village carnival is in a couple of weeks. Work has started on our float and places have been allocated. Children have been very busy preparing items. The theme for the floats is 'Adverts.' Which advert are we using? Shh It's top secret!
