Thursday 2nd July – Year 3 Greek Day

The children in Year 3 had their Greek Day this week.  Everyone came to school dressed in Greek costumes.  We had Greek gods and goddesses walking around the school along with a couple of Greek warriors.  Activities were arranged , and the ancients Greeks took part in cooking, making traditional laurel headdresses, singing and dancing,  and creating mosaic patterns.  Everyone had a fantastic day.

Whole School India Day – Wednesday 20th May

India Day this week was a huge success with many of our children coming to school wearing Indian dress.  The day was organised by pupils in Year 6 – they planned, made their resources and taught the lessons.  During the day the rest of the school had the opportunity to do stick dancing, water carrying, learnt about Vellore – the village Miss Anderson and Mrs Loakes visited in February, drink rosemilk (an Indian delicacy), play a board game and make Mendhi and Rangoli patterns.
