Harvington C of E First and Nursery School

‘Together we love, learn and grow’

Week commencing 6th June 2016

All children have started having cricket coaching this half term with Mr Hancock from Worcestershire Cricket.

On Wednesday, 10 girls from Year Three and Four took part in a football festival at the University of Worcester. The girls enjoyed playing four games of football against other schools and learned lots of new skills in workshops, including how to be a goalie and a referee! They even got to have their hair braided and faces painted. They were also lucky enough to meet real life women football players who play for Aston Villa!

All week we have been preparing our birthday celebrations for the Queen. Each class has either made jam tarts or scones and have been learning about our Queen and the monarchy.

The whole school were able to cook because of the generosity of Tesco Supermarket in Evesham who supplied all the ingredients. Mr Bishop, Ben and Heidi’s Dad, organised all this for us. A huge thank you to Tesco and Mr Bishop. We are very grateful!

On Friday we enjoyed celebrating the Queen’s birthday in school. Each class either sung a song, danced or recited poetry; they were all brilliant! We then enjoyed our jam tarts and scones before singing the Proms songs with great gusto. We finished off by singing ‘Happy Birthday’ to the Queen. I am sure she was able to hear us all even though she was in London!

Year 2’s butterflies have hatched today and have been released into the wild! They have been named Queenie and Elizabeth by the children – how appropriate!
