In school this week

Prayer Spaces

We were delighted to welcome back the Prayer Spaces programme this week which enables children of all faiths and none to explore life questions, spirituality and faith in a safe, creative and interactive way. Children in all classes got the chance to explore four prayer spaces: Fizzy Forgiveness, Thank you Pipe Cleaner People, Please Bubbles and Friends and Community Flower. We are very grateful indeed to all the volunteers who gave up their time to provide this opportunity in our school. Thank you.

Class Highlights

Children in Owlet Class have launched their animal topic with lots of stories and a new role play area. We have made a class book of Chicken Licken and explored friendship issues through the Rainbow Fish story.

Children in Owl Class have finally finished their puppets.  Please pop in to the classroom at 3pm tomorrow to have a look at them.

To launch their Charlie and the Chocolate Factory learning project, children in Panda Class had a terrific afternoon on Wednesday learning about the history and making of chocolate with a presentation by Mrs Barker.  We were all very intrigued and had many questions to ask her about her previous job at Mars Chocolate! We even got to try some Mars samples. 

Children in Rhino Class have launched their learning project on World War II and the evacuation of children at the beginning of the war. They have been sharing diaries, letters and memories of family members who remember the war.
