Trust Sports Event
Year 3 put in a fantastic performance at the trust sports event. The children came second, which was a wonderful achievement. They missed out on first by only 7 points. The children behaved beautifully and were all the adults in attendance were extremely proud of them.
Years 3 and 4 had a wonderful time on our trip to the Hare Krishna temple, Bhaktivedanta Manor. The children asked thoughtful questions and were respectful and sensitive to the beliefs of our hosts.
We travelled on a cart pulled by oxen, learned about why and how they look after the cows, walked through George Harrison's memorial garden, learned about the murtis (representations of the gods), dressed up as gods, dressed up in traditional dress (saris and turbans) and had our face or hands painted. It was an action packed day with lots of interesting information.
Years 3 and 4 had a fabulous visit to Pocket Park. The children walked around the nature reserve looking for signs of how humans have altered the environment and the impact it has had on wildlife. The children identified many signs, from litter to broken trees. They were amazed to discover the bench made from recycled plastic bags. The children also enjoyed looking at the different plant life and even heard a cuckoo! After the walk, the children took some time to sit, look and listen to the environment around them. Some children enjoyed hearing the wind rustling through the reeds, while others were fascinated by the range of colours, shapes and textures of the flowers and plants.
