Week Ending 18th September 2009

Another week has flown by! Our afternoons this week have been dedicated to Science. Younger children have investigated the topic "Ourselves" and enjoyed making "Funnybones" skeletons, and discovering their five senses. Older children studied shadows - explaining why our lovely hall was "blacked out".

On Tuesday we had a special orienteering visitor, who kindly mapped out our grounds, in preparation for our new Orienteering Club, at lunch times. Our new playground markings now boast a large clock and compass. We have a "giant" set of wooden clock hands (on casters, of course, for making the time tick by quickly), which will be used for telling the time activities, when we visit our "Time" topic.

We have also decided to include pear trees in our new orchard, so that our wonderful cook can extend her range of fruity desserts even further. Another project is now in the final stages of planning, as we have been "hatching" final ideas this week, for our chicken coop. Watch this space, for news of the first EBLS egg!

On Friday, the whole School went on a bug hunt in the grounds, and also helped to raise a donation for the Wildlife Trust. Thank you to all who contributed.
