Harvington C of E First and Nursery School

‘Together we love, learn and grow’

Week commencing 14th January 2019

Year 4 began their violin lessons again on Monday with Mrs Davies from Severn Arts.

Music lessons also started this week. Mr Blackman is teaching guitar on Tuesdays and Mr Telford is teaching recorder, flute, cornet and keyboard on Fridays. Please remind children to bring in their instruments/music each week.

We welcomed Reverend Thorniley and his Open the Book Team into school on Wednesday morning.

On Wednesday Year 5 visited the Almonry Museum in Evesham to learn more about Simon De Montfort and the Battle of Evesham. We had a great time looking at all of the artefacts, walking to Abbey Park to see where people believe Simon De Montfort was buried, learning about heraldry and some of us even had the chance to dress up as a knight! Lucy said her favourite part was seeing Simon De Montfort's grave and Tamsin loved all of the artefacts.

Year 3 were excited to have their first swimming lesson yesterday. Lessons will be held each Thursday until 28th March.

We were joined by Mr Stansbie from Worcestershire County Council this morning who led pedestrian training for Years 1 to 4. We wish to thank Mr Stansbie and all the parents/carers who braved the cold and came to help Year 2 and Year 4 with their practical training around the village.
