Week Ending 24th October 2008

We have had an exciting final week at the end of the half term. Many prospective parents and children have had tours of the School and Nursery. On Tuesday, children shared their achievements, in the Hall, and the audience met chefs, garden designers and pop-up artists!

Thursday was a busy day, when a film crew visited and filmed peg-doll making and ICT multi-cultural work. Interviews were also recorded. In the evening, there was an antiques evening, which was well attended by parents, staff and villagers. the burning question is, "Who possessed the most valuable antique...?"

Friday was the most colourful day of the week, when children and staff came dressed in wonderful costumes, for Diwali Day. There was a range of costumes: flames, candles, monkeys, elephants, Ramas and Sitas, as well as traditional Indian costumes. The children participated in a whole-School Assembly, followed by a day of exciting activities, completed by candle-light and twinkling fairy-tree lights. There were food tasting sessions, Diwali card-making, hand painting, and puppet shows. A glittering finale to a busy, bustling half term!
