Week Ending 16th March 2012

Monday was exciting for Squirrels, as a visiting sports coach introduced them to tennis techniques and... even better... it was in the sunshine!

Children from EB Lions Football Cub also practice on our field once a week, weather permitting.

This week, children have been busily making cards for a very special person... (Hopefully all will be revealed on Sunday!)

Also in the sunshine, Otters had a lovely time pond dipping on Thursday afternoon.

The Pre-School children will soon have another outdoor play item... a long tunnel to travel through, or even hide in! Watch this space for a photo of the finished area. Hamsters have been busy learning about recycling this week, and have been having lots of fun sorting out plastic bottles, cardboard, paper and fruit peelings!

On Friday 23rd March, it is "Bring An Animal Day," when children may take their favourite animal (not real!) to School, along with £1. On the same day, we are encouraging children to make laps of the School, and then take home a sponsor form, to raise funds for Sports Relief.

Next term, our topic is "The Olympics," and plans are well under way to start off the theme, with an Eaton Bray Olympic Run, with our Olympic Torch. More details nearer the time!

Also planned are visits to Wardown Park Museum, which will be set up as a Greek Olympic Games from the past.

If anyone knows of a sports person or someone with Olympic connections, past or present, who would be willing to come along to School to share their talents, please let us know.
