Thank you for your enthusiastic support at our Sports Day and Family Picnic on Thursday. Whilst it wasn't the warmest of days, Thursday came after two very wet days when we began to wonder if we'd be able to go ahead. But thankfully, the breeze dried out the grass and what a wonderful time we all had. Please click here to browse the few photographs I was able to lighten--the dark clouds left their imprint on most of the shots, but the children's smiles are the best possible commentary.
Our thanks go out to the Friends for their hard work and determination in making the day extra special with warming drinks and essential snacks. Also to Gillian who provided her very popular curry, rice and chips and especially to Mr. Ashton for organising and managing the whole event. It gets better every year!
Morris Dancing Workshops
Learning about a British traditions as part of our Brilliantly British theme.
On Thursday and Friday we welcome Bev and Ray Langton from Shrewsbury Morris Dancers. They will be leading workshops for all our classes then, on Friday afternoon before the children are dismissed, will organise a demonstration on the main playground so some of the children can show off their learning. We'll let you know the time on the website front page.
Olympic Torch Run
It's hard to imagine that it's four years since we last paraded the torch around the cluster schools! Seaburn Dene will start the run on Thursday at 9.10am then the torch will arrive back at 11,20am, carried by a team from Fulwell Infant School. During the afternoon our very talented athletics team will be taking part in the cluster Olympic tournament-Mr. Ashton will send out details to the families of the children chosen for the team.
Bark and Read
Building confidence in reading aloud
Robbie, the very young and handsome golden retriever belonging to Nicky and Gil Crossley, spent a very calm Friday afternoon listening to children reading stories. He's going to be a regular in school and has already become a bigger celebrity than Tom Hiddleston! It doesn't matter how many strokes and cuddles he gets from children, he is patient and loves the attention. Thank you Nicky and Gil, but particularly Robbie.
