Weekly roundup – Infant School
What a busy week!
We’ve had Ofsted at the Juniors, Jubilee celebrations and Green day! A great way to draw an end to term 5!
Last Saturday a team of children and parents came into school to help do some gardening and weeding. The school grounds were buzzing with a hive of activity for two hours and in that time plants were planted, leaves were swept and weeds were tamed. A huge thank you to all who came – it has made a massive difference to the grounds and the children and staff appreciate it greatly. A special thank you to Lucy who is steadily working on our kitchen garden vegetable beds.

On Tuesday, the children and staff enjoyed a day full of Jubilee activities and a Jubilee picnic at lunchtime. Lisa worked hard in the kitchen and produced a fun buffet style lunch that was delicious – I particularly enjoyed the vegan sausage rolls! Click here for Jubilee celebrations.
Connie said, ‘The Queen has been our queen for 70 years.’
Ezra said, ‘I liked the Jubilee picnic, I liked the chocolate cake’.
Aaliyah said, ‘I liked having lunch outside’.
Today all the children came into school wearing green. Louise shared some activities to promote thinking about our environment and ways we can live to support caring for it.
Defne said, ‘It’s thinking about nature.’
Zac said, ‘It’s better to walk or take the bus or scooter than driving your car so that there’s less pollution.’
Gabriel said, ‘We are helping plants grow.’
Sophie said, ‘Helping the community by making it a nicer place to live.’
Freddie said, ‘Electric cars are better because petrol makes fumes and pollution.’
Thank you to FOSS who have organised refreshments for our after-school seedling swap. We look forward to seeing pictures of your grown and flourishing plants. Click here for Green Day photos.
A reminder that we will be having our OPAL award assembly and Stay and Play for parents and carers on Friday 10th June from 1:30. We hope that you can come and join in our celebration and experience OPAL play first hand.
We wish you a wonderful and restful half term break and we look forward to seeing you all for the beginning of Term 6 on Tuesday 7th June (Monday 6th June Inset Day, school closed to children).
