Week Ending 21st September 2012

Another week has flown by!

Plans are already under way for a wonderful Pantomime, by Key Stage 2 children.  Parts will soon be allocated, and rehearsals will soon be under way.  Younger children will all participate in a play, with a Nativity Tableau.

Now back to the present!

Hamsters have enjoyed playing outdoors in the last of the warm sunshine for this year.  Hedgehogs have gathered lavender from the grounds, and are busily making gift bags.  Otters have been celebrating the festival of Eid, by making lanterns and painting their hands with henna patterns.  Squirrels have been architects and builders, and have made 3D models of Special Places.  Rabbits have been turning themselves into Kandinsky artists, working on the theme, "Circles, Spirals and Spheres."  Last, but not least, Badgers. They have been finding out about Islamic patterns, making prayer mats, and writing and decorating their names in an Arabic style.

On Thursday evening, many parents came along to an informative evening based on English and Maths.  Hopefully there is now a clear picture of the structure for both core areas, from Reception, to year four, for those who attended.
