Head’s Blog – 24th September
We have basked in the sunshine for another week and the children have been enjoying themselves out in the garden. We have loved being able to sing together and play together as small groups of Willow class have been joining Oak in the garden to play, this is going to continue on a rota basis so everyone gets to enjoy the garden without it getting overcrowded. This has been loved by everyone and a great opportunity for our entire community to get together. We have also enjoyed art, sporting activities, singing and reading. The selection of photographs below show how happy it has made everyone.
We have also been experiencing adventures both inside and outside of school and Willow class have been having lots of fun. Years 3 and 4 have been having Ukulele lessons, courtesy of The Rotary Club, who donated £500 to support our children having the opportunity to learn a musical instrument. We are very grateful to them for this, we love to offer a broad curriculum to all of our children. In the summer, Oak class are going to be learning an instrument, which I think is going to be the Samba drum. They are going to have so much fun whilst improving their dexterity and concentration.
Today, Willow class have been able to participate in an archaeological dig at Mile End. This was led by Worcestershire Archive and Archaeology Service (WAAS) and organised for us by The Forester’s Forest. Forester’s Forest are extremely supportive in helping our children learn about our wonderful Forest of Dean, this term the inquiry is “Did the Roman’s visit the Forest of Dean?’.
