The final week before the festive holidays and it has certainly not been a time for winding down! On Tuesday morning, I had a wander through the classrooms to see what was happening: Year 6 pupils were busy with wood and saws, designing and making amazing, sturdy houses for Santa; Year 4 were conducting science investigations on how to mix solids and liquids through making milk shakes; Year 5 were in the swimming pool trying out their rafts and making last minute changes to the designs. We have had three trips out: Year 3 to the cinema for a celebration of the end of their Dinosaurs topic; Year 6 to the museum of Ethnology and Year 1 to the Fire station.
In the Early Years Centre, there has been much excitement this week as the children, some of whom are still only 2 years of age, performed in front of the older pupils on Tuesday and their parents on Wednesday. Ms. Rea led our younger children through a selection of Christmas songs which entertained us and left us feeling festive. Ginger men biscuits, made by our Year 1 and 2 children were enjoyed along with a coffee as parents looked at the lovely 3D models on display.
A big thank you to Ms. Rea for working so hard with our young performers in their music lessons and to Ms. Huyen who has assisted with all the preparations.
I wish everyone all the best for our festive holidays and a Happy New Year for 2016. I look forward to welcoming our families back to school on Monday January 11th.
Ms Sue Hill, Head of Primary
