Week ending 24.9.21
On Friday, we went to church for our Harvest Festival. The children recited, with actions, the story of 'The Enormous Turnip' as part of their 'Talk for Writing'. Despite being very nervous at being in church and standing in front of the school, they were magnificent and acted out the story with great confidence. Willows' behaviour was a credit to the school and to their parents: we were very proud of them!
We had an unusual visitor to the class on Thursday: a young grass snake came in our back door! Fortunately, Paloma spied him and picked him up and after showing me, put him outside! We watched him side-winding on the path before he went into the bushes. I'm adding it to the list of pigeons, mice and frogs I've had in the class over the years!
