Week Ending 20th May 2011

On Tuesday, Sharing Assembly was well attended, and many children enjoyed sharing their achievements... We even had three Marathon certificate awards!

In the afternoon, a "mad scientist" held an assembly, which was very exciting. Children will have the opportunity to attend an after School science club, next half term.

Hopefully the village wasn't sent into a panic on Wednesday, when there were lots of "green" children in the vicinity of the school. There are now a selection of robots around our classroom, claiming to be able to perform all sorts of chores. These are Claudia the cleaning robot; Eric the electrician; Gary the gardener... all made from recycled materials.

In glorious sunshine, on Thursday, Rabbits enjoyed tennis, Hedgehogs did orienteering and Squirrels some gardening.

Our grounds are looking well-manicured, in preparation for Open gardens on 12th June. Do try to come along and stroll round, then perhaps have one of our delicious cream teas.

Next Friday is the day School closes for half term. ENJOY!

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.
