Comic Relief

We had a great time last week raising money for Comic Relief! The cake sale was a great success – thank you to everyone who donated or bought cakes. We have some very talented bakers in school! The children loved taking part in the danceathon – it was great fun! We raised over £300, so thank you all very much for your generosity.

Book Week

We have loved celebrating all things book-related this week! We have been welcoming a Mystery Reader into each class each day; stopping whatever we were doing and grabbing a book for ‘Drop Everything and Read’; swapping our World Book Day vouchers for a free book at Daunt bookshop; sharing books with our parents on Thursday afternoon and wearing our pyjamas to school! It really has been a fantastic week.

A special thank you goes to Mr Knight for organising it all, and to the parents and carers who have supported us by sharing stories, customising pyjamas and most importantly, inspiring a love of reading in our children.

Year 2 Florence Nightingale Day

To celebrate the end of their History topic, Year 2 had a Florence Nightingale Day.The children dressed up as doctors, nurses or soldiers. Over the course of the morning the children found out what it was like in Turkey during the Crimean war; learnt about first aid from Florence Nightingale (also known as Mrs Kennedy!); made a Royal Red Cross (which Florence Nightingale received from Queen Victoria) and
designed poster to recruit nurses and doctors.
