D-Day 80th Anniversary

D-Day commemorated with some creative medals.

It has been a hectic return after the Whitsun holiday and it was fantastic to see the School Council members walk sensibly down to the memorial in the village to show their respects. They had produced some well-thought-out medals, which they placed around the foot of the monument. The event brought the Church, the Royal British Legion, schools and the wider community together to mark the occasion. 

It has been interesting to see the children interacting with one another in our nature area, which has recently been cleared. Following our recent staff training this week on Learning through Landscapes, we are keen to ensure children get access to the outdoors more and more to enhance their learning. I did chuckle watching the children role-playing sitting around a camp fire during break time. Sticks were collected and stories were told. There were even some wiggly worms uncovered which proved mesmerising for the children. All children must ensure they treat the area with respect and in a constructive way. 

The Year 2 children have been using chromebooks to research the local seaside so that they can write their postcards from the point of view of the Crayons who had been on holiday. The class have been stimulated by the novel The Day the Crayons came Home and lots of other excellent work has been driven from this book. 

Next week, we have our Reception open evening for new parents on Wednesday 12th June at 5PM. We look forward to seeing as many of our new parents as possible. 

Have a great weekend everyone.
