Very busy bodies!

Everywhere I have looked this week and everyone I have seen has been very busy indeed. I walked into Fairsnape this morning to find an Egyptian tomb. I can never keep up with Mrs Kerr and her absolutely out of the box ideas for lessons. I taught in Fairsnape Class on Tuesday and when I saw rotting apples on the desks I did wonder. I had a brilliant morning in class with the children and was in awe of their Egyptian lap books. I would urge you to have a look at their Web page for the exciting apple explanation!  The children have been wowing me with their musical skills and Parlick sang ‘love shine a light’ in assembly today with only hearing it for the first time earlier that afternoon. We have children from Reception class in the choir and I counted half of the school there today.

We invited pre-school children in yesterday to help us with our new brochures and it was just wonderful. I continue to smile when I think of them. What an amazing dimension they will add to our school. I particularly enjoy the earlier years of child development because it is so very unique and special. The children express themselves so freely and I find their little personalities endearing.

We now have a school rabbit and the chicks are doing very well indeed. We are rescuing some battery hens soon and it is great to be using the space next to the Willow Dome for good use. The vegetables are growing well and the children love looking after the area.

I am attaching some pictures to show you the week in school. I have posted a video of our Year 6 children playing their ukuleles for you to see. They are brilliant! We look forward to St.Francis’ Got Talent when we come back to school. I am still not sure why I was originally put on the judging list as David Walliams’ mother but I have never been one to take offence! It is perhaps a very good job!

I have attached some pictures of our First Holy Communion children and Bishop Michael. The Confirmation service was moving and we look forward to Bishop Michael visiting school in the near future.

Looking forward to next week’s float at Goosnargh Festival. Your child came home with a newsletter today and other information about new after school clubs starting after half term. Have a wonderful bank holiday weekend and half term.
