Week Ending 6th June 2014

What a lovely week we've had!

On Monday it was Mrs Hounslow's birthday, and to celebrate, all the children had a delicious ice lolly at playtime. What lucky children, and what a kind Head to provide a treat for the children on her special day!

On Thursday, we had an EBA sponsored "Read-Off", when the children had a session of reading their favourite books, and seeing how many stamps could be accumulated during the special occasion, to raise money for library books and Kindles.



Friday was extremely exciting for some of our older children, who set off on an adventure to Dell Farm Activity Centre.  Whipsnade Zoo was the first item on the agenda, then an afternoon on the farm, followed by an evening learning about survival skills!  There was great excitement about the sleepover - wonder how much sleep there will be?!!  Saturday will involve caving and archery, before the children are collected by parents after lunch.

Our grounds now have an orienteering course, so the children will have the opportunity to participate in some outdoor fun!  see if you can "spot" any of the signs (there are over twenty!)

The allotment is thriving, partly due to all the recent rain.  There will be more planting of salad leaves, with the intention of some children being able to grow, design and then eat the imaginative plates of salad.
