Week Ending 13th May 2011

This week has been very busy. SATS for year 2 children are almost complete, and there has been a lot of effort and hard work in numeracy and English.

In the afternoons, the foundation topic has been art. Year 2 children have been sketching chairs, and even made some of their own, with originally designed coverings, from footballing fantasies to silvery surfaces! Younger children have been studying leaves and flowers and created a gigantic display of lilies, roses, and delphiniums, in the style of Georgia O'Keefe.

Our hens are back from their Easter holiday, and have settled well into their homes again. Eggs will continue to be on sale, when available. ENJOY!!

Lots of planting has taken place this week, in the allotment, and the flower beds, in preparation for Open Gardens on the 12th June... do come along and see the results of our "green-fingered" gardeners. HEdgehogs built their own cloche, and we are looking forward to sampling their tasty tomatoes. The Academy is also hoping to build a "bottle bay" so please donate any plastic bottles that you do not require.
