Week Ending 14th November 2008

We are busily decorating the Hall for Christmas - Sidney the Shepherd and his flock of happy sheep look wonderful! The children in Foundation and Key Stage One are well on their way to being word perfect, and nearly all the costumes and props are ready. Outfits for our "EBLS - Simply Red" Choir are almost complete - it's amazing what can be made from pillow cases!! Badgers are designing programmes and have made their own textile prints and batik designs for the table runners. We were delighted to welcome a visiting textile artist to enthuse our children.

Our focus this week has been on Art. The children have been looking at patterns and textures, amalgamating them into items for the corridor boards, which, this year, will be linked to our Milton Keynes Theatre trip to see the pantomime "Peter Pan". Look out for the crazy crocodile tick-tocking by Squirrels door!

Our next Sharing Assembly will be in the Hall on Tuesday.
