Harvington C of E First and Nursery School

‘Together we love, learn and grow’

Week commencing 13th May 2019

Reception class had a brilliant trip to St James’ church. The children learnt lots about the different parts of the church from Reverend Richard Thorniley. They enjoyed sitting in the sunshine and sketching the outside of the church building, creating their own stain glass windows and exploring the church. Phoebe said, “Can we do more sketching, I really liked it”. Arthur said, “I like finding different things in church”.  Thank you to Reverend Thorniley for supporting the children’s learning.

On Friday KS2 visited the science museum in Bristol. We were able to explore so many different exhibits including animations, parachutes and bubbles.  The children enjoyed being able to touch and test everything around the museum.  Each class also completed a different workshop that linked in with their science topics.  We all had a brilliant day and the children were extremely well behaved and keen to find out answers to questions they had.

Also on Friday, KS1 and Early Years held a joint Art day. Children were split into three mixed age groups and rotated throughout the day to complete three pieces of art. Our theme for the day was the seaside. We had an assembly in the morning to discuss all the things we knew about the seaside and some time to talk about our experiences of visiting the seaside. We were all very excited to get going. It was wonderful to see children from each year working together and supporting each other throughout the day. Well done to everyone, there were some fantastic pieces of art produced. Look out for some new displays popping up around school soon.
