Harvington C of E First and Nursery School

‘Together we love, learn and grow’

Week commencing 19th November 2018

Reverend Richard met with the Sunshine Group on Monday.

On Tuesday Year 4 arrived at school in their evacuee costumes ready for a visit to Hartlebury Castle. The children took part in two World War II workshops.  The first one was ‘Classroom at war’ where they learnt how to put gas masks on and what to do in an air raid shelter.  The second workshop ‘Make do and Mend’ taught the children how to reuse items to make new things such as rag rugs and paperchains out of newspaper.  Everyone had a great day and learnt lots of new facts.

Mrs Thorp hosted a Drop-In session on Wednesday - thank you to all parents who came to have a coffee and a chat!

Yesterday we were joined by other local schools to take part in a Year 1 Gifted and Talented Art Day. The children designed some fabulous artwork which was based on the book 'Lines that Wiggle'. 

Today Year Three visited Evesham town centre as we have been learning about the history of it in our theme lessons. We visited the library where we looked at very old pictures of Evesham and even found one of our school! We learnt how to take out a library card and where to find the children's books. Next, we walked to the statue of Eof and sketched it. We know that Evesham is named after Eof so it was great to see the real life statue!
