KS1 Queens Birthday Party

The children in Year 2 enjoyed dressing up and celebrating the Queens Birthday. We all wore our Knights uniforms or our Princess dresses and enjoyed making crowns, flags, dolls of the royal family and our very own paper plates. We also made sandwiches and decorated cakes for our very own tea party where we sang Happy Birthday to the Queen. It was a wonderful afternoon and made even more special by the visit of Play Group! 

 

  

Den Day 

All the children through out the school enjoyed taking part in Den Day. We split into mixed aged teams and set about the task of designing, resourcing and then building our very own dens. The children loved the day and had tremendous fun. It was wonderful to see all our 4 BLP learning styles in full action, Resilience, Reciprocity, Resourcefulness and Reflectiveness. Well done everyone! Most importantly we raised a great deal of money for Save the Children!
