Week Ending 20th November 2009

We have been finalising details for our Christmas gathering in St Mary's Church, on Monday 7th December, at 6 o'clock. Please come along with your children, and join us in a musical, mince pie and mystery extravaganza! (Don't worry children there will be juice and biscuits for you!) Our school has volunteered to help design and create two new gardens in the Church grounds. Work has begun, involving box hedging, lavender and bulbs. Please admire it as you pass on your way on the 7th December, and pause to consider all the hard work and dedication of our children, and a willing adult gardener. It's so nice to help and put ideas into reality, in a short period of time.

On Thursday there was a Fashion Show, in the hall. Thanks to all our models, who looked very professional as they "strutted their stuff".

Foundation topic this week has been design and technology. The children have enjoyed making Christmas cards / calendars and gifts. Squirrels have made salt dough tree decorations, Rabbits have made velvet Christmas stockings, with sewn on applique. Hedgehogs have transformed their entrance into Cinderella and Prince Charming's palace. They are planning the room where the wedding feast will be eaten, so look out for some delicious plates of tasty food!
