Japanese Children's Day, newly-hatched chicks and O2
Having another short school week means that it has been very busy again! Today we have just watching a wonderful assembly on The Ancient Egyptians from Year 4, our first celebration assembly since before Covid hit! It was great to see everyone back together and welcome visitors in too.
Year 3 celebrated Japanese Children’s Day yesterday; a day to celebrate children’s personalities and happiness. They were dressed in red and white and really enjoying making Koi carp flags and trying some Japanese food.
The eggs hatched over the weekend, and we have loved watching the parents flying in and out feeding their new babies. There was great excitement in assembly on Tuesday morning, the new hall projector means that we can finally see pictures really clearly on the screen. The babies have grown so much already! Did you know that the parents need to feed the chicks around 100 caterpillars a day each? That’s a lot of caterpillars to find for 9 chicks! See if you can spot the parents removing the white poo sacks from each chick to keep the nest clean. You can follow their progress here: http://www.seenature.org.uk/schools/st-edmunds-cep-school/
We are off to the O2 today. Our choir is singing with 7000 children, at the Young Voices concert. The children are very excited; it will be a wonderful day. We will tell you more about it next week!
I hope that everyone enjoys the long weekend.
