Week Ending 4th July 2014

This week was very exciting for our younger children, as they had a day at Waddesden Manor on Wednesday.  The day started with a bug hunt in Dame Alice's Wood, with children spotting many mini-beasts, then designing and making their own "bug hotels." There were lots of burrows in the woods, but fortunately no Hedgehogs, Otters or Squirrels were lost down there!  Then there was a tour of the formal garden, and a visit to the golden aviaries, which was full of exotic birds from around the World.

A perfect day out in the sunshine!

Meanwhile, back at School, Key Stage 2 children had an enjoyable day, playing rounders on the field in the sunshine.  They also had the chance to practice their French language skills, and taste delicious French food, at their very own French Market, in the School Hall.

We have had a couple of interesting assemblies this week. On Thursday, we were visited by our friends from Mad Science, who entertained us with experiments involving balloons and hairdryers!  There is a Mad Science Holiday Club at school over the summer, so do sign your child up if they are keen, and you are able to!

On Friday, our visiting musical instrument teacher, Mr Perry, and his team of talented student musicians, treated us to a musical assembly, with piano and violin recitals. Mr Perry has spaces for musical instruments tuition for next term for Key Stage Two children, so please let us know if you are interested in finding out more.
