Mother's Day - 11th MARCH, 2018

 

Pre-School children have worked very hard with their sewing this term. We hope that you enjoyed the outcome!! The children started making these back in January and completed just in time for Mother's Day, (due to the fact that we lost a week with snow!!). Here are some pictures of the finished cushions.

Science Day At School.

We had so much fun. The children had lots of ideas as to how they wanted to use materials available to them. I don't think that we have ever had such a quiet class!! 

I think that you can see by the concentration and expressions on the children's faces that they had a really good morning.

International Day 21st November,2017

Pre-School enjoyed listening about facts from other countries. A lovely show of costumes. They were each able to say a few words hello/goodbye and some counted to five in the language of country that they represented. It was interesting to hear the greetings in Yoruba (A Nigerian Language), Greek and Spanish. Miles spoke about Greece from the picture that he had made. Asmi and Sofia counted to five in Punjab.

They were all confident and spoke out to the rest of the school during International Day Assembly.
