Harvington C of E First and Nursery School

‘Together we love, learn and grow’

Week commencing 26th February 2018

The children returned to school after enjoying the half term holiday.

Just before half term our fabulous Year 5 class visited Malvern Outdoor Centre. The children were extremely excited and were very organised for their time away from home.  During the trip the children learnt lots of new skills including how to make their bed and how to make their own sandwiches!  They showed lots of courage and perseverance when trying new activities which involved: climbing, crossing bridges and travelling down zip wires.  On the last day we walked to the top of the Worcestershire Beacon; the highest point in Worcestershire and admired the view.  All of the adults were very impressed with how the children encouraged one another and how they were all so positive about trying new things.


Children and staff held a celebration of all things ‘Alice In Wonderland’ to mark this year’s World Book Day.  All pupils came to school proudly modelling their homemade ‘hat’ creations inspired by the Lewis Carroll classic!  After an impressive hat parade the children joined together to enjoy a Mad Hatters Tea Party, tasting the delicious jam tarts they made earlier in the day. Thank you to Miss Beaver who organised the day.

On Thursday the snow began to fall and all children were collected by 3pm. The school closed on Friday due to the weather.
