Seaside Fun Day

And so we really are “nearly there”. What a busy week we have had! First, congratulations to everyone for their wonderful efforts for their houses at our Sports afternoon last Friday. The children really did try their hardest, and there were many personal triumphs. Mrs Wycherley and Mr Woolston were surprised by the imagination many showed, up at Forest School, making clay Tree Sprites. With any luck, these will still be there when we go again in September. Thank you for remembering the different day! (If you have found clothes that don’t belong to your child – please bring them back to school so we can reassign them before the holiday). This week we have been working very hard to complete our bunting – finishing off our DT work for this term, ‘joining fabrics’. The children have shown such fortitude and bravery, as well as great patience. Fortunately, despite much finger pricking with the needles, no handsome princes were called for, in order to rescue sleeping beauties! The children were so proud of their finished results and were thrilled to see their bunting on show at our Fun Day. What a wonderful day this has been! The playground and MUGA were commandeered by Kingfishers. A menu of activities was given to each child so they didn’t have to ask what they should do next – a sandcastle competition, a treasure hunt, paper boat making and floating, and of course the paddling pool for fishing! There were one or two edible surprises too – just to make our day memorable and special. Two more packed days next week – Forest School on Monday – (Thank you to Mrs Wycherley for all her hard work and hot chocolate making this term – and to those who were able, or offered, to assist) – and then a garden visit on Tuesday to finish off the strangest of years.
