Yesterday Thistle and Clover class had a fantastic day visiting Lydiard Park. Not only did the children get to experience what life was like in Victorian times, but they were also able to dress up in traditional costume and play with Victorian toys. What fun! Here are some photos of Thistle class, kindly taken by Mrs Williams. Enjoy.
Today in school we have been enjoying a huge range of mathematical activities as part of our whole school Maths Day. Every class took part and classes were filled with everything from skittles to a science and maths cross curricular activity in Orchid class counting taste buds! There really was something for everyone and the children had a fantastic time.
Here are some photos of our lovely day.
After another superb day in school, I wanted to summarise in a blog post just what fun we had on Father’s Friday. As in previous years, dads, grandads and significant male members of the family were invited into school for as little or as much as they wanted to take part in and enjoy a day of learning. Once again, we were thrilled to see people turn up in such huge numbers, which made the day so special.
Beginning with our weekly celebration assembly, many dads had decided to come in for an early start and then stay on. With so much to celebrate, the day was off to a good start and then everyone filtered back to class for the beginning of lessons. From phonics to rounders, music and singing to reading and arithmetic tests, our dads took part in everything with a smile and a wonderful attitude and atmosphere, immersing themselves in everything that the day had to offer. Even at playtime and lunchtime, it was a joy to walk the grounds and to see everyone playing together on the field.
I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who made the time in their busy schedules to be able to come to school and join us today; we loved having you and it was a pleasure to work with you for the day.
Here are some photos of our day and we managed to catch up with some dads for their reaction to Father’s Friday too. Have a great weekend everyone!
