Meet The Guinea Pigs

The guinea pigs have caused much excitement this week, and the children have loved having them in school and in their classrooms. The School Council collected possible names from each class and shortlisted the choice, before allowing our Reception Children to have the final say.

Meet Carrot and Spud!

Some of the children have already enjoyed stroking the the guinepigs and some have even enjoyed reading stories to them. Spud really enjoying hearing the tale of Goldilocks and The Three Bears, whilst Carrot nibbled on some hay!

A big thank you to the Friends of Cannon Park who enabled us to purchase everything needed to help us care for our school pets!

Anti Bullying Week Begins

Reception learned that being unkind leaves a mark and changes you forever!

We had a piece of smooth paper and said unkind things to it. With each unkind comment, the paper was bent or ripped, meaning it could never be returned to the beautiful piece of paper it once was.

We were also unkind to an apple then looked inside to see the effect it had. We were shocked to see that the apple we were mean to, was bruised and squishy inside. We didn’t want this happening to anyone we know, so we decided we must always be kind, using thoughtful words and nice hands, so feelings inside are not hurt!

Diwali Celebration 2018

Happy Diwali Everyone!

Reception celebrated Diwali by creating Rangoli Patterns by our door, using chalk and paint. We discovered that this was done as a way to welcome the God Lakshmi into buildings. It was really fun once the colours started to blend together in the rain! We also acted out the story of Rama and Sita, and made Diwali cards.
