Not long now to our Mad Hatter’s Tea Party… 🍰🎩🍭🌺🍄😺❤️♣️♦️♠️🐰

❤️♣️The adventure starts here… ♠️♦️

What an unusual start to the school day…

We all came inside through a rabbit hole…

Then through a door…

We met some strange animals…

     

Next we found ourselves at a tea party…

where we met a Cheshire Cat…

Along the corridor there were beautiful flowers…

They led the way to an enormous mushroom   and a large blue caterpillar  …

The adventure was still not over… because in the library we found  rose trees, pink flamingos and playing cards ❤️♣️♦️♠️…

We went to assembly and followed  the clues to help us find which copies of ‘Alice in Wonderland’ our classes will study this week.

Call back soon and see what happens as our adventures unfold. It’s so exciting! ❤️♠️♦️♣️

‘Cleanliness is next to godliness’ in Key Stage 2…

I am delighted to report that following very thorough examination, with the exception of a couple of grimy chimney sweeps, the fingernails of our Key Stage 2 pupils all appear to be neat and clean!

Classrooms are orderly and quiet and most dunce’s caps remain unworn as yet!

I would also like to commend Agnes and Alonso for their excellent geographical representations of countries in the British Empire.

‘Children (in Key Stage 2) should be seen and not heard’…

It’s Friday morning with a slight difference. All of our Key Stage 2 pupils have arrived at school in amazing costumes ready for their day of Victorian schooling.

Met by their class teachers, who will all be addressed as ‘Miss’ today, they lined up for inspections of clean faces, fingernails and shoes, before walking silently to their classrooms (boys first, of course).

Simple lunches in paper bags have been collected and lessons have commenced. More posts and pictures will be added to class blogs throughout the day.

Yippee – the ‘Bog Babies’ have returned…

We have just had some excellent new on this blustery Thursday morning… the Bog Babies from Sycamore Class have been found safe and well!

It appears that the excellent descriptions and posters that the children wrote yesterday have been successful and led to their missing Bog Babies who were found on the school site this morning.

I’ve just enjoyed a visit from two relieved and reunited Bog Babies – phew!

 

Celebrating Candlemas…

This afternoon our whole school came together for a Service called Candlemas which was led by Rev’d Larkey and Rev’d Dr Heber-Percey.

Pupils from Elm Class acted out the story of Candlemas and took the roles of Simeon, Anna, Mary and Joseph and the crowd and other Y5 pupils led our prayers.

Rev’d Larkey taught us a beautiful Taize chant and everyone held candles.

We finished by singing ‘Shine, Jesus, Shine’.

We all enjoyed our very special Service and hope you will enjoy our photographs from this afternoon…
