Whole School Meeting
Dear Parents,

Last Monday we had the pleasure to welcome for the Whole School Meeting Roi Gal-Or to the school who showed us the beauty of storytelling and how much positive energy we can create by changing the angle of looking at things.

We would like to thank everyone who came and participated, not only in the workshop but also the discussion about the development of the school, despite the fact that we ran quite a bit over the time. We hope to continue down this positive path for our school community.

It was jumble-tastic as always. Thank you to all who donated, sorted, sold, baked and dropped. 
Another £1200 resides in the school coffers thanks to your efforts. Until the next time...

( 10th June if you need a beacon of light, now that you have just found another bag of jumble to get rid of )

Jo and Lindsey
Kindergarten Outdoor Classroom

At the end of January, we had started trialling outdoor classes with our kindergarten children. We are now in our 7th week and, as you can see in the pictures, the children have been very busy enjoying the activities and games outside from 8.30 to 10.30.

We start our morning with a verse followed by tea time and some activity at the table such as sawing the broom handles and assembling them, making  bird feeders, sand candles (Michaelmas Festival) and their own tea bags (when they closed their eyes and tried to guess which spices there were!). 

Since last week we have been working with clay: making plant pots for their Easter seeds (which plant? it will be a surprise so they will find out by themselves!). After our activity around the table, we then start gardening: now we are preparing and sowing seeds that will encourage bees to our wild area; packing the leaves from the compost heap - where they are finding and exploring different creatures living there! And if we still have time we have our games on the green such as, “What’s the time Mr. Wolf” or some skipping in our garden. We end our morning with a verse and then they return to their groups (Tuesdays: Chestnut Kindergarten children, Wednesdays: Mulberry Bush; Thursday: Rosebush and on Friday: Apple Tree) and sometimes they are welcomed back with a beautiful laid table for their snack time! 

Kindegarten Working Day a plea to make our garden a great place for our children 

On Saturday, 22nd April from 9amto 5pm we are planning to build a new play pit and perhaps a slide area in our garden. Please, come and bring tools and loads of enthusiasm and skills to build a great play area for your children. Adults only and pot luck lunch contributions welcome.
