Week Ending 23rd October 2014

This week Squirrels Class and Badgers Class have been "over the moon" because there is now a brand new  interactive white board in each classroom... it's as if Christmas has come early!  A big thank you goes to our Home School Association, who helped fund the purchase, and to all the parents whose contributions to fundraising made it possible.

On Thursday, our friends from Cafe Masala came to talk to our older children about food preparation, and demonstrated how to cook pilau rice. Lots of useful cooking tips were picked up by some of the adults as well!  Last week, the children made their own trays of colourful pasta - for more pictures of our cooking activities, please visit the EBA Enterprise page of our website

Also on Thursday, children helped to fill shoe boxes with gifts for children less fortunate than themselves.

Otters Class have been making pieces of stained glass, using techniques they found out about from the stained glass artist's visit.

Squirrels Class have been investigating the artists Lowry and Georgia O'Keeffe, and created fabulous reproductions of some famous pieces of artwork.

On Friday it was a non-uniform day, when children brought in items for the Christmas Fair, which is on Saturday 29th November. Please keep this date in your diary free... the more the merrier!

Enjoy a restful half term week.
