Bolsover Castle

We had a lovely day at Bolsover Castle and it helped our learning being able to see a real castle and to ask and answer questions about it. Luckily it was not too hot and it didn’t rain. The children enjoyed the playground as much as anything else! They also made some excellent sketches which we have used to make paintings back in class. Thanks to everyone who helped and supported, and thanks to the children for great behaviour too.

Trip to Bolsover 20 6 17

The children do not need to wear uniform for the trip tomorrow, just to dress sensibly for the weather. I do apologise if I was giving out the wrong information!

This letter will go home tonight as a paper copy and on email too.

Dear Parents

The weather forecast for the trip looks similar to today with a little more cloud cover.

We do not need the children to wear school uniform but sensible clothes for the weather.

Bolsover does not have many indoor work spaces so we will be outside for most of the visit.

Please ensure your child has appropriate footwear (no flip flops or crocs) and a sun hat. Sun cream will need to be applied by you before school as we are not able to apply this to your child.

They will also need their packed lunch if you have indicated you are providing this and an additional drink of water for through the day. We will give out the packed lunches provided by school but they only contain a small bottle of water. If your child is having a school packed lunch please send another drink of water for through the day.

The children do not need any spending money for this visit.

Many thanks

Hinduism Week in Y2

This week in school we have all been looking at Hinduism in R.E. In Y2 we looked at the Hindu people’s prayer at home, the artefacts and the gods. It was all really interesting and enjoyable. We really liked making our own shrines.

On Thursday afternoon Noah’s mum very kindly came in to talk to us about her Hindu beliefs. We learnt so many things and we enjoyed the yummy snacks she brought too!

This week has also been Art Week and so we have enjoyed making papier mache 3 – d sculpture pictures of Hindu gods and designing ‘Paisley’ patterns which are based on ancient Persian and Indian designs from flowers, seeds and fruit.

Please come and see our work in the exhibition on Monday after school in the hall!FullSizeRender (29)
