Autumn Term

Making yummy mince pies!

Christmas craft afternoon. It was lovely to see so many parents coming into school to enjoy the craft activities with their children.

Today we went on a class trip to St Mary the Virgin church in St Marychurch. We met Father Robert Ward who kindly showed us around his church. We saw the stained glass windows and father Robert told us about the people depicted in the art work. He also showed the children around the church and at the end we got to see the font. Father Robert told us that the font is used for when babies are christened. The children asked father Robert some interesting questions and we found out lots of information. We really did learn a lot. Thank you father Robert for sharing your church with us and thank you to all our parent helpers who gave up their time to come on the trip with us today.

Our healthy eating parent share was a lovely way for the children to share their learning. They sang a song to their parents and grandparents. Afterwards, everyone explored a selection of activities including making a healthy fruit kebab and looking at healthy pack lunch ideas.

Learning about Diwali. We made yummy coconut barfi to share with our families. Jackie came in to visit us and she taught us how to make clay coil pots. The coil pots were then made into Diva lamps for Diwali. We also made rangoli pictures and firework pictures.
