Week Ending 11th March 2011

This week our foundation topic has been design and technology. Younger children have been busily making cards and gifts for special occasions. Afraid that no more details can be given, due to the secret nature of some gifts! (Mother's Day, of course.) Older children have been sewing money containers - wallets and coin purses.

Our allotment has been prepared for planting, and peas, beans and spinach are now under the cloche. The rhubarb crowns are shooting and so we look forward to rhubarb crumble and custard. Next week the pond will be the centre of some scientific research, so it has been cleaned and tidied, ready for lots of little "Squirrel and Otter" visitors.

On Friday, a visitor from the Greensand Trust held an assembly and left a "hands-on display for the children to investigate over the next few days.

Dates for you diary:

* Next week, there is a Sharing Assembly on Tuesday at 9.00am in the School Hall.

* On 6th April a children's disco, after School.
