What a lovely treat to have the ice-cream van in school. The sun was shining and all was pleasant then, as the children were lining up excitedly to wait their turn, Mr Gilmour did something that I have never seen him do before-he developed some kind of tunnel vision and he only saw the ice-cream van and the man through the window of the van as he rushed to the front of the line to ask if there were any Fabs! I haven't had a Fab in years but Mr Gilmour obviously is fond enough of the to make the children wait for their ice-cream! A lovely afternoon was had by all-the nursery children seemed to use the ice-creams as messy play but there we are-it was great!
We have had a lovely day ( quite competitive at times) with our Year 6 children vs staff at netball. The Year 6 children are busily getting their photo books signed and they were sensational in yesterday’s leavers assembly. It was a joy to see parents as an audience again and there were certainly smiles and tears.
Well, this is an exciting blog because I am excited to write it!
An important landmark in a child’s life needs a separate celebratory post on our website.
…and don’t forget to add some enchanted forests and a reading shed!
I absolutely love our school displays! Below, you will see the new waistcoats for toad created by Year 1 and 2 children. I really enjoyed reading the children's stories and their little boat poems in the style of 'Duck's Ditty' and 'The Owl and the Pussycat'-the children just keep on writing and writing and adding the pages of paper as they go.
What a super week we have had. It started with Mrs Rossall's class having a visit from a real marine biologist. The children enjoyed the rock pool roadshow so much that we got in touch with Delia Webb, a marine biologist, who is passionate about saving the oceans from pollution. It was shocking to see the impact of single use plastics in our oceans and we ask you all to continue to bring in bottle tops of various colours for some grand scale pieces of art work. Beacon Class wrote incredible persuasive letters to local MPs to raise a heightened awareness of this situation and recorded these with such passion and expression.
