Little Way Week, Life Education and Grandparents Celebration!

It is the last day of September, and it certainly feels as if autumn has arrived. We have enjoyed the cold, bright mornings and warm sunny days. It was a beautiful morning for cross-country earlier!

This week is ‘Little Way’ week, where the children have learnt about St Therese of Lisieux, sometimes known as the ‘little flower’. She is always a great inspiration to the children as she wasn’t perfect but wanted to do little things with great kindness, something we can all aim to do in our own way. Inspired by her good deeds, we have all tried to do little things to help one another, at home and at school. As Therese said, ‘What matters is not great deeds, but great love’. Do ask the children to tell you all about her.

There was great excitement when we had an inflatable ‘Life Education’ classroom in the hall, earlier this week. Each class paid a visit to the classroom to learn about keeping healthy and making good choices.

On Wednesday Year 3 travelled back in time to Butser Ancient Farm. They had a lovely, sunny day and learnt so much about Stone Age life and developed some new skills too, making daub to build walls, an archaeological dig, identifying bones and carving in chalk to make pictures.

There is great excitement around school today as we get ready for our Grandparents Celebration this afternoon. The last time we were able to welcome grandparents to this special event was in 2019, so it is all new to many of our children and families. The children have been rehearsing a short poem or song to perform this afternoon (You can see Years 2 and 4 in the pictures). We hope that all the visitors enjoy the afternoon.

Have a lovely weekend,
