Week Ending 11th September 2009


We returned at the end of last week to find that many exciting additions and changes have been made to our wonderful, bustling School. Outdoors, we have a new red "sail" in the Nursery, providing shade and shelter, from the elements. The playground looks very smart, with a range of new playground markings. Indoors, our large Hall has been revamped, with fresh, bright paint and sets of vibrant patchwork curtains. Watch this space for news about EBLS Station, to be situated in the Nursery Playground; chicken run; apple orchard, by our existing allotment.

On Wednesday, we had our first Governors' Meeting of the new academic year, when we welcomed a new Chair of Governors.

This week our foundation topic has been geography. The younger children enjoyed delivering the mail, transported on a big red tricycle. Older children have been investing seasides at home and abroad, and were treated to a tropical fruit meal, when they even tasted dragon fruit - they agreed that they looked more appealing than they tasted!

On Friday, there was a "Bugs Assembly" in the hall, to be followed next week by an outdoor "Bug Hunt".
