Week Ending 23rd September 2011

This week has been another busy time! On Monday evening there was a Maths Evening, when children demonstrated their knowledge of numbers to parents. Wednesday was the first meeting of Governors in the new School year, when there was an update of the creative curriculum, and of our Seaside Trip to Walton-on-the-Naze.

Hamsters have been having fun in their new sand pit, making sand castles and sand pies. Hedgehogs rock pool has lots of fishy friends floating in the seaweed, and has been very popular with everyone. Squirrels have been thinking of circles, spirals and spheres and made a display of beach balls in 2D and 3D. Rabbits have produced sculptures inspired by the Ocean, whilst Badgers have focused on Queen Victoria's summer residence - Osborne House on the Isle of Wight.

Our produce from the allotment continues to provide variety in School dinners, as does fruit from our orchard. The children are thoroughly enjoying their meals, with favourites this week being vegetarian wraps and Bakewell tart.

On Tuesday our first Sharing Assembly of the new School year will be held at 9.00am.

Monday evening is the time for the HSA Annual General Meeting, so please do come along and support us.
