- The Easter break worked its magic; after healthy doses of chocolate children and staff returned refreshed and ready to begin the summer term. With the relative thaw in temperatures our frog population returned to the pond and spawned in short order. Off set against a backdrop of different daffodil varieties that formed the subject of our initial art and science work. Where did they all come from? Describing domestication and the work of Charles Darwin in explaining (simply) variation amongst species seemed to satisfy most.
- Clubs also blossomed around the school. That hardy perennial, Recorder Club, started with the ever spring like Lydia. We hosted a training session for Energy Club an initiative to help children stay fit and healthy in a fun way. Parents and staff will use this experience in extra-curricula ways to enhance our provision.
- Gardening Club re-emerged from hibernation to
catch up with planting in the veg beds and starting our pumpkins and salads in seed modules indoors.
- And of course it wouldn't be spring without the cheerful tones of Maypole music being heard between gusty showers and the always cheerful exhortations of Mrs Betty Feasey reminding us all of the correct steps. How does Mrs Feasey remember all this, Mr Storey? Lets ask her shall we Nell? Probably because I've been doing this for 36 years! 36 years, WOW! We hope to see you on the Knoll on May Day.
- The star of this first very busy week was however an enduring classic. Mr Jim Fleming kindly brought his 1961 Bentley for the children to study as part of their Vehicles topic with student Mr Simon Spillings. We all marvelled at the well maintained luxury of the car and at how many advanced features it had for its time and design. Children then went on to make designs for their own constructions.
