Squirrel Class really enjoyed Garden Day on Friday, completing a wide variety of activities. These included helping with the maintenance of the school garden, planting new plants, designing their own perfect garden, creating a garden on the Purple Mash programme, creating scultures from pebbles, pebble painting, measuring trees and plants and lots more!
As part of our History topic we enjoyed a visit to the beautiful Layer Marney Tower. We dressed up as Tudors which helped to take us back in time, finding out more about the Tudor way of life. Everyone enjoyed playing games, Maypole dancing, learning about the medicines and tasting some tudor style food. All in all we had a totally terrific Tudor day!
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!
