A brilliant afternoon of circus skills from the fantastic teachers at Cirque Normandie. It really got the children of Years 2 and 3 into the circus spirit ready for the weekend. Today we got the chance to learn some new skills..juggling, plate spinning, hula hooping and using the flower sticks. All of them required a huge amount of patience and resilience, which the children demonstrated superbly. Well done guys!
A big thank you to PTA volunteers helping to arrange the Buddy Gift Hampers. As well as Mrs Bone and Mrs Wells always working incredibly hard, we are very lucky to have a small group of dedicated parents offering their time and skills. We would love more!
We were very lucky, thanks to Mrs McHugh, to have some Thames Water workers giving up their time to support the school as part of the ‘Time to Give’ scheme. As you can see, they have cleared our outdoor pond area and we hope to develop this over the coming months. (And in 30+ degree heat!)
We will be driving outdoor learning next year. Our new mini-outdoor classroom will allow wet weather learning to continue! A big thank you to Mr Tucker and his team for all the hard work. Mr Tucker will be arranging the installation of a climbing wall and a larger outdoor classroom project is planned – watch this space!
The mobile classroom’s ground-works are nearing completion. Installation is planned to be completed over the holidays. As the school grows, we will be making use of the classrooms for two year groups. Watch this space also!
Year 2 experienced learning about home grown butterflies! Lillian had been nurturing butterflies at home in her very own BUTTERFLY WORLD and decided she wanted to share this learning experience with the class. She talked about the different stages of growth and revealed how she looked after the five growing butterflies. The class were able to see, first hand, what the butterflies needed to survive and supported Lillian in releasing them into the Maple Cross garden area.
