Summer must be just around the corner; tests are over, we’ve all had an ice-cream (even Mr Finch) and Yew Class have been planting sunflowers in the school garden. We’ve even anticipated the arrival of sunnier days in our morning singing practice!
A hefty thank you to Nicky, Chloe and Julia for facilitating a post-SATs treat. On Tuesday afternoon, the children planted out the sunflower seedlings that they had cultivated in class. Volunteers had already cleared the bed for us, and collected trowels for the children to use. Chloe and Nicky helped the children with planting. Afterwards, Chloe delighted the children by serving up ‘99s’ in the playground. Even the sun made an appearance: just beautiful!
On Monday Lydia, the director of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, ran a workshop to teach the Year 2s and 4s a dance which will be performed in the play. Lydia is an inspiring teacher, and expertly choreographed the performance. I was hugely impressed by the results after just half an hour’s practice. Well done Lydia!
It’s been a struggle to fit everything in this week and, if I’m honest, this half-term. There is so much going on, which creates a real buzz around school. It is so lovely to be doing the things we have all missed. On Wednesday, the children made their prints of King Tut. They worked with rollers and ink to produce stunning images, which will form a display in our corridor. There will also be a copy to take home.
Have a fantastic half-term.
Very best wishes,
