Learning together, growing together

Autumn Term

Our masks make a terrific display in the corridor near the office.
Thank you to Sarah and Elaine who helped make our Greek themed afternoon an event to remember.  There was a procession, drama, a 'fight' (don't worry it was all part of the show), dancing and feasting.  We also made Christmas wreaths in the December sunshine.  A special thanks to the parents  and grandparents who braved the cold and the mud  to join our celebration on the school field.  Well done (and thank you) to Dominika's mum, Tristan's mum and Shane's mum who each baked a tier of the 'wedding' cake.  Mmmmmm . . .  they were all delicious!
A winter walk helped generate ideas for a descriptive narrative.
