Week Ending 21st January 2011

This week, our foundation topic has been history. Rabbits were finding out about "The Great Fire of London", and recreated Pudding Lane, in three dimensions.

Younger children were investigating "Old Toys." They made peg dolls from old wooden "dolly" pegs - hope you didn't have trouble hanging out the washing this week! Toy researchers busily investigated how various toys worked, and looked very smart with their special labels.

On Thursday, a visiting musician came to demonstrate percussion instruments in a special assembly. At the end, several children were picked to form an Eaton Bray percussion band!

Next Tuesday is the first Sharing Assembly of the New Year, and it will be held at 9am in the School Hall. Visitors will be able to see our "Tree of Hope for 2011," and share our wishes for the World for this year.

One of our new ideas, for this year, is to have a lending library. Children will be able to borrow a book to take home. The School Council will supervise this special treat!
