Week Ending 10th October 2014

This week, it was Squirrels Class' turn to enjoy the Forest School. They made mini "shelters" using recycled  items and natural objects.

On Monday, Otters Class walked down to St Mary's Church (in the pouring rain) to look at the beautiful stained glass window they have there.  The vicar was able to tell them lots of information about all of the windows, some of which are very old, and some much newer.  Otters children now have lots of ideas and inspiration for creating their own stained glass windows!

Older children have been delving into the works of Rudyard Kipling and have studied "The Jungle Book", especially the antics of the cheeky mongoose Rikki-Tikki-Tavi. They have also been learning about World War 1, and created an array of 3D models. Do have a look at the "Poppy" board in the corridor next time a visit to School is called for... many names from the past!

The real highlight of the week though, for Foxes and Deer children, was on Thursday afternoon, when as part of their EBA Enterprise work, they had the opportunity to visit a real working restaurant. The Cafe Masala in Eaton Bray kindly welcomed us, and treated our children like VIP guests, laying a table beautifully and serving a selection of their delicious curries, rice and poppadums for the children to taste and enjoy!  The children learned such a lot about running a successful business, and came back buzzing with ideas that they hope to turn into reality when they establish their own restaurant.  We would like to extend our huge thanks to the Cafe Masala, and would encourage anyone to visit, if you want a fabulous Indian meal!
