Family Working Party Day
Many thanks to all the families who came and helped clear and tidy the school grounds. We painted the Friendship Bench, planted the hundreds of bulbs donated by Vanstones and tidied up the Growing Together Garden.
Shame nobody told them that full Hippo bags are collected free...
Enrichment (Autumn 2019):
One of the enrichment groups is using yarn in different ways. We started by weaving different yarns onto old DVDs. The children chose their own yarns and started to learn about tension and how projects with thicker yarns grow much more quickly than projects with thinner yarns. We will hopefully all learn how to crochet over the next few weeks. Some children can already crochet, so they did a bit today and added it to their discs. They also tried to teach their friends. More next week...
We’ve all learned to make crochet chains, and now we’re trying to learn single crochet. We may manage to make pumpkins by the end of the half term...

The new House captains were elected:
Whole School Trip to Kew - Summer 2019:
