What a busy week!
Tuesday morning we had a visit from Widdershins Puppets and they told 'The story of Three'. The children were enthralled with the story telling and puppetry. More excitement later, when the whole school went to 'The Crown' for Christmas lunch. It looked delicious and smelt very tempting, there were lots of clean plates........even some brussel sprouts were eaten! On Wednesday the whole school were split into three mixed groups and they learnt about Christmas and the different customs and traditions in Spain, Denmark and Germany. On Thursday, Squirrel Class visited Clapham to watch the Barn Nativity. It took place outside, as the children followed the characters around the garden the actors told the story of Jesus' birth and ended in the stable for the final scene. All this plus rehearsing for the Christmas Play.
A whole day of science experiments which the students loved. It was all about them finding our for themselves and What happened if.......
The whole school buzzed with children exclaiming Wow, Quick, look at this, Look what happens when ... and lots of other phrases. They loved the practical experiments and the chemical reactions and came together at the end of each session to share what they had found out.
