Spring Term Update

All the classes took part in an oral story-telling competition using different voices and puppets to bring the stories to life. Paw prints appeared in the Reception Class and the children took us on an exciting Bear Hunt in their performance assembly to retell this tale. Well done to the winners who received book tokens.

Several classes benefited from safety talks given by the Fire Brigade. Harry in Class 1 wrote, ‘On Tuesday morning Class 1 met a fire fighter. He talked about good and bad fires. He said to never play with matches because they are extremely dangerous. If our clothes catch fire: Stop Drop Roll. We talked about smoke alarms. If there is a fire we should call 999.’ Please heed the children’s advice and check your smoke detectors now.

Class 2 went back in time to the Victorian Age when they visited St John’s Museum in Warwick. Roseanna and Emily said, ‘The whole day was fun. We learnt how to use a spelling book with old-fashioned writing, how to recite the alphabet and use slate boards to try out the curly letters like H.’ Archie was a really good actor and entered into the old-fashioned ways when he was made to wear a back-straightener for slouching. As part of a topic to find out about wool, the youngest children had a classroom visit from two lambs. This was followed up by a visit from a weaver who showed the children a fleece and simple steps so they could try weaving for themselves.

The Christian Value of the term has been Responsibility so it was a real joy to receive a sizeable donation of coats for project Coats2Syria. Thank you to everyone who contributed to help the Syrian refugees in desperate need of protection from the winter weather.

There is always the opportunity for any prospective parent to visit and see the school in action. Please contact Mrs Horrocks on 01295-680244 to make an appointment.
