Years 1 to 6 joined other members of our community on the eleventh hour of the eleventh month. The village paused for a two minute silence as we remembered those killed in the two world wars and those killed or injured since.
Starlings class really enjoyed going for a walk through the village to post their letters. It was such a lovely afternoon, we decided to practise some road safety whilst we were out and about. The children were extremely sensible and were all using their senses as they stopped, looked and listened. Well done Starlings.
Starlings class have really enjoyed finding out about different fruits from around the world. We used atlases to find where the fruits had come from and then we had a chance to taste them. The children really enjoyed this activity with many of them trying fruit they hadn’t tasted before. .
