Afternoon tea with the queen!

The children were very excited today to have afternoon tea with the queen. They greeted her politely and sat down to have a cup of tea (decaf of course) and a jam scone with her majesty. They told her all about Nicol mere school and asked questions about life at Buckingham palace. They also made sure that they stuck out their pinky finger as they sipped their tea!


A christening in Reception

Sian the vicar from St Peters church came into school this afternoon to christen our baby. The children chose the name of our baby by voting using a voting box. They chose the name Poppy Rose. Sienna and Sam were the mummy and daddy and Lilly, Frankie and George were the godparents. After the christening all of us had cake to celebrate.


Armistice Day

The children have been learning about Armistice day and the symbol of the poppy today. They drew a beautiful poppy field in the creative area and collaged their own poppy using different materials. They wrote about the soldiers and the poppies on the writing table. They showed great respect and maturity in honouring the 2 minutes silence.


Andy Goldsworthy

As part of our art curriculum enrichment day the children learned about the British sculptor Andy Goldsworthy. We talked about how he uses natural materials and looked at the shapes that he creates. This inspired the reception children to create their own sculptures and amazing pictures.
