Week Ending 25th March 2011

Our allotment has now been planted with potatoes and chard, so we are looking forward to fresh salads, at lunchtimes. the children's favourite job is watering the plants...and sometimes themselves!

This week, younger children have been doing art, with a selection of topics, including 2D sculptures and collage, based on the theme, "Our Nature Trail." The children had a lovely walk around it, and collected many natural items, to use in their practical work.

On Friday, Badgers took part in a "Sing Up" event at Totternhoe Lower School, along with three other local schools. They sang lots of lovely songs that they have been learning this term, and thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

Next week, we will be making plans for our "Academy" celebrations, which take place on 1st April... no joke! Visiting scientists are calling in to each class, and the children will be carrying out various scientific experiments. In the afternoon we are singing, and our "Marching Band" will lead us, as we march forward into Academy Status.
