On Wednesday 28th September we held the school’s Harvest Festival service at St Mary’s Church.The children read poems and the congregation sang the hymns which had been selected by class 2. All the children had created some artwork to decorate the window in the children’s area of the church. Thank you for all your kind gifts and donations which were displayed as the school logo rainbow and will be passed on to the Food Bank.
In Class Two we have been looking into the Tudor Dynasty as part of our history learning. We were researching the War of the Roses and the start of the Tudors. Linking to this the children had to design and write a set of instructions for making a Tudor Rose from clay.Once they had completed the instructions they had to make their roses following them. When they had dried out the children painted them in the Tudor colours.
