Obstacles Courses In The Wood!

With Sport’s Day approaching, we spent the time at Wiggery Wood creating obstacle courses for our friends to complete! We worked cooperatively in teams and used our imaginations to build the obstacle courses. We worked on lots of skills including balancing, aiming and speed. The obstacle course were without doubt, the best ones ever made at the woods! Well done Year 2’s!

Travelling Through Our School Time Tunnel!

Badger class had an interesting afternoon looking through old school magazines that were created by pupils from our school in 1923! They included poems, prayers, beautiful drawings of wild flowers and more. We found these very old magazines fascinating to look through, and made lots of notes about what these magazines can tell us about the past.

We decided to make our own magazine all about ourselves and our school. This included a wild flower search around the school grounds followed by watercolour paintings in the style of children’s author and illustrator-Quentin Blake!

Our books were fun to make and are almost finished. We thought it would be a good idea to put some of our work, and the magazines from the past, into a time capsule for people to look back on in years to come.

(This will happen at some point in the very near future!)

Wiggery Wood

It was lovely and cool in the woods last week amongst the shade of the trees. It was also perfect weather to go bug hunting! We found lots of giant worms and slugs!

With the help of Mrs Plumb some children made beautiful natural mobiles with feathers, pine cones and leaves that they found around the woods.

Happy Retirement Mrs Foster!

We had a special assembly to say farewell to Mrs Foster, a long serving member of staff who means so much to us all. Muntjacs read her a beautiful poem, she was presented with handmade gifts in which the whole school had contributed to, along with flowers and balloons. Mrs Nichols read a thoughtful prayer to send Mrs Foster on her way with God’s love surrounding her every step.

The assembly finished with an emotional balloon release, watched by the whole school and followed by lots of hugs and cuddles.

Thank you Mrs Foster for all your support at St Giles and have a very long and happy retirement!
