We welcomed all our Reception children into class full time this week. They have enjoyed a busy week learning new routines, exploring the school grounds, getting to know their teachers and making lots of new friends.
On Tuesday Mrs Clark met with our Eco Warriors to discuss what they wanted to achieve as ECO warriors and the children decided that saving energy and recycling was the most important. Their ECO message is:
TURN IT DOWN, SWITCH IT OFF, REUSE IT OR RECYCLE IT!!!!!
Music lessons started again this week. Mr Blackman from The Musical Box teaches guitar lessons on a Tuesday and Mr Telford teaches flute, cornet, keyboard and recorder lessons on Friday mornings. We look forward to listening to the children play their instruments at our Music Concert in December.
On Wednesday, Mr Kings from Direct Sports Provision, led an archery after school club. The children had great fun aiming at the targets.
After another successful year of fundraising for charity (we raised a whopping £1539 for St Richard's Hospice), the children and staff took part in a vote this week to choose another charity to support over the coming year. The choices were The British Heart Foundation, Vale Wildlife and Christian Aid - the winner will be announced shortly.
