Today it was the chance for our other Year 4 class (Mr Imeson’s) to share their learning with parents and carers. They enjoyed retelling the story of The Great Kapok Tree and sharing the environmental messages they had learnt. This is certainly a book which has captured the children’s imagination and one which has important lessons for us all.
Our Year 6 children enjoyed a visit to the new library in town this week to enjoy a wonderful and informative exhibition on Anne Frank. This was run by the Anne Frank Trust in conjunction with Horizon CC. Several Year 8 children from Horizon acted as guides to the exhibition and did a fantastic job of informing the children about this important event in history.
As I have mentioned before, we have a group of Year 6 girls who are organising their very own healthy tuck shop to run for Key Stage 2 pupils every playtime. Earlier in the school year, they wrote to all the major supermarkets in Barnsley asking for help in getting their project off the ground. Only one supermarket replied and this week they visited Tesco at Stairfoot to receive a donation of goods to get started. A huge thank to Tesco for their response. Hopefully, it won’t be long now before the girls are serving customers.
Our nursery children have enjoyed finding out all about Chinese New Year those year and the Year of the Rat. They have looked at special books and tried out Chinese food as well.
We hope that everyone has a lovely weekend. We look forward to seeing all the children back at school on Monday.
