We have had a fun day outdoors today with activities inspired by Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream which we had watched on cbeeebies iplayer. The children loved creating their own magic potions and wands and have made their own dream catchers. Once all the children have had a chance to finish off all their bits they can bring them home tomorrow. Hopefully they will also have their school report in their bag so look out for that.
As the end of term is drawing close we have been requested to return all school books, both library and reading books. Please have a look round for any you may still have at home and return ASAP. The children have really enjoyed reading this year and have made great progress so don't feel you have to stop over the summer. In assembly this afternoon we had a visit from the librarians at Lymington library introducing the new Animal Agents reading challenge. It starts on Saturday but the children can go in at any time over the summer and sign up to do the challenge. If they aren't already members I would recommend you join and the children were very impressed this was free to do! Once they have their library ticket all they have to do is choose any six books either to read themselves or have read to them and as long as they can tell the librarians what they thought of the books afetrwards then they get their rewards. After reading 6 books they get a cerificate and gold medal! And all for free! Your child should have brought home a postcard with more information on it tonight.
Yesterday the children enjoyed watching the Year 4s perform Samba music in their Listen to Me concert and then after that Mr. Thomas the music teacher taught KS1 how to sing an African song - Kye, Kye Kule (pronounced chay chay coolay) which they love. Once they get to Year 2 Mr. Thomas will be teaching them Music on a regular basis and he is looking forward to having them.
Thanks to Neil our vicar, the children also had an opportunity to meet a Rwandan Bishop who was visiting on Tuesday and ask him questions about living in his country. I hear it was very interesting and the children asked some very thoughtful questions. I believe they also passed on some letters from our class for him to take back with him to give to children in Rwanda. I wonder if they will get any replies!
